What happens when One Direction unexpectedly drops a new single? Mass hysteria. Actually, what happens when One Direction does anything? Mass hysteria. It comes with the territory, I suppose. Considering the overwhelmingly positive fan response One Direction’s surprise release of “Drag Me Down,” I can only assume that these rampant hysterical moments will only grow more passionate and widespread as we near closer to their next album. You know, like a considerably less dangerous wildfire. (I think...)
The moral of the story is this: 1D Fans are so damn dedicated that their dedication shows even in something as simple as their tweets. The reactions from the fandom in response to “Drag Me Down” aren’t just any old tweets of praise and excitement. No, these utterances are far more nuanced and thought out. Directioners have upped the game of idol love and admiration. They have fun in their excitement and know how to laugh at themselves in order to make the rest of us laugh along with them. (And really, I'm sharing in their glee. I mean, a new One Direction song is a win for us all, isn’t it? And especially because this particular song is undeniably good.)
