So as much as it’s a shame that people can’t be patient and wait for the boy band to release their music video, I just had to watch the leaked video that came out last night. It was worth the uh, almost wait?
The video sees the boys recreating old family photos, which is the just about the sweetest thing ever. They even put the same clothes on…You see Louis Tomlinson with his grandparents, Harry Styles with his mother, Niall Horan with his brother, Liam Payne with his family and Zayn Malik with his sister. The whole video is just a ball of cuteness.
While the lyrics seem to be a love song, I can’t help but think that it’s a metaphor for how much their lives have changed. We reported earlier how Harry was almost mobbed back in Australia, so it’s fair to say things have changed quite a bit in the last three years. Still it’s refreshing to see the boys just singing, instead of jumping around (not that I object to that) and being playful. It’s good to see a more mature side to them. Still I don’t want to lose the playfulness that we all love about them. Don’t go changing too much boys, we love you the way you are!
Look Zayn Malik! Perrie Edwards is pretty in pink as Little Mix Go Legally Blonde For Wonderland Magazine
It was also refreshing to seem the X Factor stars not playing the heart throb role and just being natural with their families, whilst giving us a glimpse of them in their younger days. Such a nice treat for the fans.
Has One Direction’s Liam Payne split from girlfriend Sophia Smith?
The video really does do a good job of showing a different side to One Direction, and we hope to see more on their upcoming album Midnight Memories. The song Story of my Life is the second single to come off the album following the number one single Best Song Ever…
If you don’t want to wait any longer and make your heart melt then we have the leaked video here.
But don’t say we didn’t warn you!
