We already know how skilled Directioners are at trending anything remotely related to One Direction. So when we opened Twitter today and saw that the #1 Worldwide trend is #Samukano1D, we weren't surprised at all. But what the heck does it mean, really?
Apparently, Samuel Nascimento, a 19-year-old Brazilian actor, singer, and dancer, is what this particular trend is about. We're not sure if this is a belated April Fools' Day joke. It seems like Samuk, who appeared on the Brazilian musical reality show High School Musical: A Seleção, and eventually was one of the 12 finalists who filmed High School Musical: O Desafio, has fans who want him to replace Zayn in One Direction. Of course, everything is a little hazy to us because we're not exactly fluent in Portuguese. But this photo manip kind of says it all.
Samuk currently stars on the Disney Channel's Original Series Violetta. And no, he's not replacing Zayn. (Can people stop even thinking of doing that!) Directioners just like to have fun, that's all—no matter where they're from. We suppose this helps the moving on process? Either way, carry on, 1D fans. We wonder what you'll trend tomorrow.
