One Direction certainly had fans swooning today with the debut of their new music video, “Kiss You.”
According to Daily Mail, singers Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, Zayn Malik and Niall Horan channeled some of the greatest videos of the ‘50’s and ‘60’s al-la The Beach Boys and Elvis Presley.
The One Direction heartthrobs are seen donning several different outfits, from sailor outfits to prison uniforms, suits to swimsuits.
The boys also engage in a series of activities in the video, including riding the waves and dodging sharks in an obvious green-screen setting. The boys are also spotted racing down the street, before heading off to jail – one that resembles Presley’s “Jailhouse Rock.”
From Elvis to the Beatles, in which the group channels one of their many iconic black and white photo shoots, the group truly tries to grapple the era.
Music video director Vaughan Arnell teased MTV before the video’s debut saying, "The ultimate tease, I think it's as you've never seen the boys before, kind of studio-based. I wouldn't say comedy, it's all tongue-in-cheek.”
