QUESTION: How the heck do you go about cheering up a fandom full of super sad One Direction fans after all the drama of Zayn Malik taking a break from the On The Road Again tour?
The answer? Well, that comes from a certain Liam Payne, who’s taken it upon himself to post THE most hilarious video of Niall Horan dressed as a granddad, talking utter nonsense.
Super Payne and Grandpa Horan to the rescue.
We have literally run out of words to describe how much we love this lot.
Sharing the above video of Niall talking what we initially assumed was totally gibberish, Liam wrote: “This should lighten the mood.”
DING DING DING, we have a winner.
Also, is it wrong that we *sort of* fancy the little Irish sweatheart, even though he’s dressed in a flat cap and sweater vest?
If it is, we don’t want to be right.
Helping us to decipher what the HECK just came out of Niall’s mouth, Liam tweeted: “Subtitles; ah Jesus lads will you stop hitting the slither against the wall they’re just after painting it ya b******s ya … Your welcome.”
Earlier in the day, Liam had not-so-subtly responded to the news that Zayn Malik had been signed off the band’s tour (just for a few dates).
He simply tweeted: “What a day.”
You can say that again.
Niall has yet to comment on the news, instead tweeted his excitement for the band’s trip to Manila this weekend and sharing photos of his elephant ride on MazSight.
Neither Harry Styles nor Louis Tomlinson have commented either, whilst Zayn’s last tweet was his denial of *those* cheating accusations.
The Bradford boy himself has now landed back in London after being signed off the tour due to stress following those photos of him supposedly partying with a girl in Thailand, which sparked cheating rumours.
Simon Jones, PR for the band, released a statement saying: “Zayn has been signed off with stress and is flying back to the UK to recuperate.
“The band wish him well and will continue with their performances in Manila and Jakarta.”
Team this with reports that him and Louis have been asked to back cash bonds before they can enter the Philippines following last year’s ‘drugs’ scandal, and it’s all been too much for Zayn.
We’re sending the poor lad our love and hoping he feels much better soon.
