British boy band One Direction finally released the new video for their third single “Kiss You” on Monday from the sophomore album Take Me Home.
In the video, One Direction band members Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles, and Louis Tomlinson recreate scenes and images of various teen heartthrobs from the 1950s and ’60s.
Directed by Vaughan Arnell, who was behind the camera for “Live While We’re Young” and “Little Things”, the new video for “Kiss You” features the One Direction guys on motorcycles before imitating Elvis in “Jailhouse Rock”, hitting the ski slopes, catching waves like the Beach Boys, and posing in sailor uniforms.
In the days that led up to the premiere, Louis Tomlinson told fans that the video for “Kiss You” would be “loads of fun and filled with “stupid dancing, loads of different locations and lots of fun.”
Fans will be happy to know “Kiss You” is loaded with fun, especially when Harry and Zayn cheekily sing the lines “So tell me girl, if every time we touch, you get this kind of rush.”
After the massive success of their first two albums, One Direction released tour dates for their 2013 World Tour which features stops in North America, Europe, Asia, and Australia.
The One Direction tour will begin in February 2013 with the first two concerts scheduled for London’s famous O2 Arena. One Direction will end their tour in October after twelve concerts in Australia.
