Note to parents of young girls: Do not click on the following video if your child is in the room. High-pitched screaming could result.
For those a few generations behind, here’s a primer: No, the New Kids on the Block didn’t regroup, get younger and get British (and/or Irish). That’s pop-megagroup One Direction, the latest ridiculously popular boy band, in a teaser for the upcoming video “Kiss You,” soon to melt a YouTube hit counter near you.
The boys — Harry, Liam, Louis, Niall,
Tito, Jermaine, Lance, Justin, Danny, Jordan, Joey, Ringo and Zayn — are dressed in sailor outfits, among other getups, for the shoot, which MTV.com reports will feature “pure stupidity.”
MTV, for those unaware, used to play music videos. Think of it like a YouTube for the 1980s, only with fewer cat videos and this guy.
We’ll find out whether the sailor outfits are for a campy dance number or something more sinister when entire video drops Monday.
