Celebrate with One Direction and Red Nose Day, where everyone gets to have a good and humorous time while raising money to change lives across the UK and Africa. One Direction lent their help by doing a mash-up cover of the 1970s songs "One Way or Another" and "Teenage Kicks" and donating all the proceeds from that single to Comic Relief, a British charity helping people all over Africa and the UK living with really tough lives.

The boys in simple white shirts, shared in a car ride that, "instead of spending a load of money on a music video, we decided to make it ourselves" while they were on tour and give all the money they saved for Comic Relief. Thus, opening the video with incredibly silly and fun-filled shots of the boys doing a variety of actions, like Niall singing in the shower, Harry gleefully posing while being carried by two men, Louis bobbing along with some Japanese cosplayers, Zayn half-singing, half-sleeping in bed, and Liam chilling with some kids in Africa while at the same time showcasing places in London, Tokyo and Africa! The video even featured David Cameron, the Prime Minister of United Kingdom. Yep, the man wearing the suit got to meet the boys, and we are officially moving to London. The band got to spread this cheerful message and mission when they performed the song at the Brit Awards, in a very red and explosive theme. Move over, T-Swift! But in all seriousness, One Direction is really raising a lot of awareness to Directioners and non-fans to help in their own way the marginalized people in UK and Africa, and they call out to you to do the same!
