Are One Direction on vacation or still working as a team?
Currently, One Direction’s members are spread throughout the world, even though it first appeared they would all converge in Los Angeles to keep Zayn Malik company. Harry Styles and Liam Payne are currently in England, while Louis Tomlinson and Niall Horan are allegedly all in California.
Despite this, they all appear as if they are still working as a band in their new Toyota Vios commercial in Thailand, but UnReality TV claims that this ad was filmed in December.
“[J]ust before Christmas, weeks before they began their break, the boys got together to film a special commercial for Toyota, which is currently airing in Thailand.”
On the other hand, it looks like they may have taken individual members of One Direction aside to do a few shots of them driving the car without other members of One Direction. Instead, Toyota could have filmed a few frames with Niall Horan independently of One Direction — especially since he was recently in Thailand.
The ad has several shots of One Direction driving or riding in the car throughout the Toyota ad while their song “Perfect” plays in the background. In many ways, the ad resembles the video for “Perfect” because both the video and the Toyota commercial also feature One Direction in a hotel room.
At the end of the One Direction commercial, the motto for Toyota Vios in Thailand appears and states that it is an “All Time Friend.”
Speaking of all-time friends, One Direction is lucky to have won over Simon Cowell. While some fans may speculate that Simon Cowell was extremely disappointed that One Direction decided to take a break in 2016, it appears that nothing could be further from the truth.
MTV U.K. quotes Simon Cowell talking in early March about how One Direction still has “loads more” projects coming up — even if they are all solo projects.
“Well, it was always going to come. You can’t work at that level; the way [One Direction] did. I mean lots of things are going to be announced over the next few months, but they were/are, the nicest people, you know, to work with. Hardworking, appreciate everything, so it won’t be the end.”
Of course, when they do start touring again, One Direction might have some competition. This is especially true since Katy Perry has been on a hiatus of her own — and there may be some crossover with her fans and One Direction fans.
Pop Crush points out that in their Music March Madness polls that One Direction beat out Justin Bieber fans, but their competition with Katy Perry has stayed near tied. Their polls close as of March 16, and as of March 12, the statistics were 50.16 percent for Katy Perry and 49.84 percent for One Direction.
Alternatively, some celebrities are always making a point that they do not like One Direction.
In addition to Noel Gallagher of Oasis repeatedly stating to the public (and his daughter, as previously reported by The Inquisitr) that he does not care for One Direction, actress Kate Hudson took it one step further. According to J-14, Kate Hudson stated that she did not really care for One Direction since Zayn Malik left.
Despite the negativity, One Direction is still working hard on their careers — and showing they are some of the good guys. For example, Louis Tomlinson was recently commended for helping out two people from his hometown of Doncaster.
The Daily Mail reported on March 10, that two people from Doncaster were severely injured in Vietnam around Valentine’s Day when they were on vacation.
One Direction’s Louis and his family learned of the situation and recently sent them a sizable donation to help because they could not afford the “special evacuation flight back to Britain [that] would cost them £30,000, and that their insurance company wouldn’t pay out due to a technicality.”
