13 Moments From One Direction's "History" Video That Are Heartbreakingly Bittersweet
Do you want the good news or the bad news first? Eh, I'll go with the good news. Maybe that will lessen the blow. The good news? One Direction released their new music video for "History." The bad news? The music video is full of throwback clips that show the boys' entire career and friendship. Yes, it has happened. One Direction has declared emotional warfare and unfortunately, I don't think any of us are in any condition to put up much of a fight.
"History" isn't all about the past, though, despite the name. There is new footage featuring the boys and Harry Styles' luscious locks, so it's definitely worth watching. In fact, the new footage in contrast to the footage of them as little aspiring singer babies makes the whole thing worthwhile and yet devastating at the same time. Ugh, babies. That just reminds me that Louis Tomlinson just became a dad. We're all super old now, aren't we? At least, that's what "History" is suggesting.
Anyway, what better way to celebrate the end of the One Direction era (or the pause of it, if you believe they'll be getting back together) than to highlight the most bittersweet nostalgic moments in the new video? You can check out the video below and then feast your eyes on the moments from the vid that will make you feel oh so much.
