Sneaky Brits One Direction pulled quite the trick on an unsuspecting group of female fans who had trekked to Sun Valley, California’s Cadillac Cafe, thinking they were simply in for a screening of the boy band’s Up All Night: The Live Tour DVD (out May 29). Turns out the lads themselves were waiting in the wings — er, make that the kitchen — and, as part of VEVO’s Go Shows series, they walked out and treated the shocked young ladies an acoustic performance of their breakout smash “What Makes You Beautiful”.
“I think we like to kind of slow it down a little bit,” said Harry Styles, behind the scenes. “When we play to intimate crowds — a lot of our songs are a lot of fun and really kind of high energy — so when we do it acoustic, it’s nice to slow it down and have less people.”
We gotcha, Harry. So do fries come with that shake?
