Countless teaser clips and photos have been leading up to today’s big moment for One Direction fans: the arrival of the music video for “Steal My Girl,” the lead single off the boy band’s upcoming LP Four. So was it all worth the wait? Let’s see what we have here…
Things kick off with the five guys on the desert-based set of the video shoot. (Looks like the much-filmed Vasquez Rocks, just outside of L.A., to us.) Then comes the startling arrival of the quirky “greatest artist of his generation,” played by Danny DeVito. He ominously informs the worried lads, “I’ve seen your work. Today we’re gonna take it to a new level.” Uh oh. More »
