One Direction revealed their new self-shot music video for “One Way or Another (Teenage Kicks),” benefitting charity Comic Relief with all proceeds going to benefit less fortunate kids in Africa.
"This year we decided to make a single to raise money for Comic Relief,” Louis Tomlinson says in the opening of the video, which shows them driving in Africa, and Zayn Malik adds "Comic Relief are a British charity that do amazing work helping people all over Africa and in the U.K. living with really tough lives."
"So instead of spending a load of money on a music video. We decided to make it ourselves while we were on tour and give the money we saved to Comic Relief,” Styles added, MTV News reports.
The video shows the 1D boys traveling all over the world helping kids in need, and ends in Africa surrounded by kids. An appearance from U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron is even included in the video.
The video supports the 25th anniversary of Red Nose Day.
“One Way or Another” actually leaked before it was supposed to, and at that time, Tomilson tweeted “I hear the charity single has been leaked. Very sad to see. Don't forget together we are trying to raise money for Comic Relief. Please get behind an incredible charity and make a real difference. You can pre-order now from iTunes for the official track. Thank you."
