The boys Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles, and Louis Tomlinson were discovered by Simon Cowell on UK’s “The X Factor” in 2010. Over just three short years, they quickly became one of the world’s biggest boy bands. As “One Direction”, the boys have a gigantic and loyal fanbase, with thousands of “Directioners” screaming their names at every concert, every performance, and every encore.
To date, they’ve sold over 13 million records worldwide although they haven’t quite been to all parts of the world just yet.
Now, watch Niall, Zayn, Liam, Louis, and Harry navigate the high and lows of fame in this study from investigative documentarian, Morgan Spurlock. The “study” (shot in 3D) is called, “1D3D” and it follows the quintet closely as they tour, meet with fans, sign autographs, and phone home to mum. Aww.
Expect to hear voiceovers from the “One Direction” boys about their journey and watch exclusive footage of their performances or goofing off backstage coupled with nearly wall-to-wall shrieking courtesy of the “Directioners”. “1D3D” will also reveal some of the boys’ antics on the road including wrestling, miniature football matches, and Liam balancing bone china teacups on Louis’ head in a hotel room.
Uh, yeah. Good times:
