One Direction's Video 'Best Song Ever' Beats Arrival of Middleton's Best Baby Ever

U.K. boy band One Direction just totally one-upped their future King or Queen. The adorable fivesome beat Kate Middleton to the punch and delivered the much-anticipated video for "Best Song Ever" before the Duchess could deliver the best baby ever. Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson and Liam Payne: 1; Royal Baby: 0.

Since we're pretty sure that the Duchess won't hold a grudge against 1D for birthing their money-making single before she could, it's with Union Jacks and foward-side-swept bangs that we recommend you watch the "Best Song Ever" come to life while you're waiting for the royal baby to, well, come to life.

Please keep an ear out for their hilarious interpretation of an American accent (all that's missing is a "dude" thrown in at the beginning of each sentenced and, like, a bunch of "likes") and keep an eye out for Zayn's successful attempt at cross-dressing.

Dude looks like a lady, and dude looks pretty good.

Ball's in your court, Middleton.
