One Direction's "Live While We're Young" video is officially here, and it's as much fun as you could ever imagine from a backyard barbecue meets football match meets wet t-shirt contest thrown by your future husband(s). Like we saw in early shots of the boys during filming, things get a bit damp—in the best, least incriminating way possible. 1D's lyrics might have grown up a smidgen, but the boys are still all about jamming, having water gun fights and playing with inflatable fruit; sopping wet clothing clinging to their toned bodies shouldn't make you think otherwise.
Think of this as the "before" moment.
Since this pool party takes up a large chunk of the video, we've compiled the most essential shots of the boys for a more focused viewing experience. Gratuitous? Nah. It's our job.
WIPE THAT SLEEP OUT OF YOUR EYES!
ARE WE REALLY GOING TO DO THIS, LOUIS?
WE ARE! OH, YES, YES WE ARE!
DID YOU KNOW THE SPIDER-MAN SUIT WAS MODELED AFTER NIALL'S CHEST?
HE DOESN'T LIKE TO TALK ABOUT IT
HARRY COMPLETELY FORGOT THE CONCEPT OF THE VIDEO AND WORE WHITE
BUT NOT THAT SORRY
AND YOU SHOULDN'T BE EITHER
DON'T CRY, ZAYN! WE WERE JUST GETTING TO YOU
YOUR WORK ETHIC IS IMPECCABLE
AND LEAVES US NO CHOICE BUT TO APPRECIATE YOU IN ALL OF YOUR SUN-DRENCHED GLORY
NO, IT'S GOTTA BE YOU
MEANWHILE, LOUIS WILL TAKE THOSE SOLOS WHEREVER HE CAN
KUDOS TO NIALL FOR BEING BRAVE ENOUGH TO GO SHIRTLESS
YES, LIAM! IT'S SO MUCH FUN!
AW, YOU'RE MAKING US BLUSH, LADS
Before we watch the video again (and again), let's celebrate that the mystery of the inflatable banana has finally been solved:
You may now commence having this on repeat for the next 72 hours.
