One Direction break the law! Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, Harry Styles in trouble?



One Direction are the best selling band in the world. They have legions of young fans around the globe and make millions and millions of pounds each year out of ticket sales, record sales and merchandising purchases made by their legions of Directioners. However, some have claimed that the lads aren’t exactly the best role models for their teen supporters.

In the same month that Justin Bieber was accused of assault, DUI and smoking marijuana on an airplane (and let’s not mention the egg incident and the gambling claims!), some people have insisted that 1D aren’t exactly paragons of virtue either and are promoting some technically unlawful behaviour in their new music video.

One Direction: FUNNIEST & sexiest Niall Horan memes from around the interweb!

Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, Harry Styles released the official music video for their single Midnight Memories last week and while it didn’t break Miley Cyrus’ Vevo record, they did achieve more than eight millions views on the clip within a 24 hour period. However, those that watched it will have seen more than one illegal act.

The video has now been watched more than 13 million times and Twitter has been buzzing as fans try to push the number higher and higher by the day.

So what’s all the furore about? Well some (probably older) people have pointed out that some of the X Factor stars’ antics are a little too crazy and would certainly land the lads in trouble if they tried them in real life.

Let’s have a look:

1: Harry, Niall etc climb London’s Tower Bridge and can be seen shouting and laughing as they lean from the high railings on the monument. If police officers were to get involved, the revellers could be charged with trespassing, willful endangerment and a number of other crimes.

2: The lads decide they’d like to go for a high speed sail on the Thames, but instead of hiring a dingy or jumping on the closest tourist cruise boat, they steal a police speedboat, as an unsuspecting officer watches on. Niall Horan seems to be the ring leader in this one!

3: To make matters worse, as the band speed off in their newly stolen vehicle, the take to the top deck to belt out their catchy tune. It’s all very watchable and certainly we were drawn in, but who was driving? Who was steering? What if they crashed into a nearby dock, or even worse, another boat? Illegal…see!


4: A One Direction video, wouldn’t be a One Direction video if Niall didn’t go in pursuit of food! The lads are spotted in a city shawarma restaurant, but the staff aren’t quick enough with the serving for Horan’s liking, so he leans over the counter and steals a lump of kebab meat….with his teeth! Theft right there.

5: The boys all get a little mad at this point and after Liam consumes a little bit too much chill sauce, Zayn attempts to cool him down by spraying him with the restaurant’s fire extinguisher. After Liam overindulges with a hot dish full of chili sauce, Zayn sprays him in the face with a fire extinguisher. It looks like a bit of fun. Just like getting hit with a custard pie right? Wrong, misappropriating a fire extinguisher is most definitely a crime and in fact inhaling the fumes from the foam can be deadly.

So there you go Directioners. Our boys are lawbreakers and rebels.

Do you love them more or a little less after hearing all that? Let’s hope the boys in blue aren’t reading!

    Wow…. It’s for enjoyment! It was all planned!!

  2. joana on February 6, 2014 at 9:44 pm

    This is so ridiculous

  3. Alexandra on February 6, 2014 at 9:49 pm

    Alright, the reason why they did all the “crimes” is to have FUN. Okay? It’s not a real life thing, they most likely wouldn’t do all these crazy things in real life. It’s a dang video. It’s called Midnight Memories, not Real Life Sh*t. Besides, it’s funny.
    And, they didn’t do the Justin Bieber, peeing in buckets, getting arrested, in real life or not.
    Think about that..

    do you know what it is? acting?
    Soo, Fast and Furious would be ilegal too. They do all the shit, breaking all the laws, they promote everything We can’t do in real life!

    Talk about a bunch of hype. Everyone knows they did all this after they cleared with the police.

  6. lol your a joke on February 7, 2014 at 4:47 am

    Who give two shits. Harmless acts of fun, what the hell- even if they were charged I don’t think it would bother them or the fandom at the slightest

  7. Holly Bentley on February 7, 2014 at 7:09 am

    OMG shutup grandma there having FUN for christs sake

  8. Kailey on February 7, 2014 at 12:58 pm

    Do you really think that the boys would do this for real and let their fans see it? They wouldn’t want us to do the same thing if it wasn’t planned out.

  9. aby on February 8, 2014 at 3:59 am

    Really people this is just a music video, like really its in the name ” midnight memories” its suppost to be fun it not like they are gunna go out and do this for real and even if they did i would still love one direction i will always be a directioner

    Ok, first of all, this is a film clip!!! They wouldn’t do this on real life think of that. Justin beiber has done WAY worst anyway. Niall wouldn’t really jump over a counter and eat meat of the stick like that!! And Zayn when he sprays the fire enstinguisher on Liam, he is doing that to be funny!!! You might want us to stop liking one direction, but you can’t stop us for being directioner!!!!

    Honestly, it’s a freaking music video. Do you expect them to grind on walls like other people? Listen to the song, MIDNIGHT MEMORIES they’re doing rebellious stuff, let them live a little! I highly doubt people would to all of this stuff because they did it in their music video. It’s all been safely constructed, so don’t freak. Stop saying this stuff about them! This is so unnecessary.

  14. ZAYN on February 8, 2014 at 9:35 am

    PUHLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEZZZZZZZZZZ!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! COME ON! look, they are 20+ years now! they know what to do and what not to do inreal life! gosh its just a music video! chill! OH OK, just bcuz Miley sits on that huge wrecking ball, in the video, does it mean she does it in real life! gosh! music vids are meant to be untrue and crazy! grow up guys!!!!!!

  15. Tara on February 8, 2014 at 10:14 am

    Omg!!! It was just for fun!!! They are very responsible. They just want to live their lives. And of course they won’t do this in real life. And someone is driving the boat, they just have the person photoshopped out :/ ugh people these days!!!

  16. lujain on February 8, 2014 at 2:53 pm

  19. zaynsforme on February 8, 2014 at 3:35 pm

    All I have to say is DIRECTIONER 4 LIFE!!!! All the haters need to just get over it.

  20. niall is mine on February 8, 2014 at 10:22 pm

    Okay I guess if you looked at it in a different way its may look bad but they were just acting and the fore extinguisher was full of flour they wouldn’t do anything illegal on purpose cause at the end of the day its just a bit of fun they were acting trying to make the best video they could for all their fans and I don’t think well I hope no one would be that silly and climb onto the top of the bridge

  21. zahra on March 10, 2014 at 8:30 pm

    they would have had to have permision first anyway sorry about my spelling o and they would not be singers and famuse anymore if they did illegal stuff without insulting the police and it would have been all over the news and they would have been banned from all of those places sorry but I think you are wrong and this is sick that this was all set up to be a directioner hater sorry but that’s wrong sick and sad be ashamed of your self!!!!!!!!!!!! no one listen to tis is all lies
