Zayn Malik: Chances are the name just gives you chills.
When the One Direction singer isn’t performing for his countless fans around the world, he’s recording impossibly catchy tunes in the studio. He also somehow finds the time to pose for adorable photographs and share interesting things on social media. While some celebrities may scoff at helping their fellow man do anything remotely pedestrian, Malik apparently hasn’t lost his sense of humanity. Good for him.
According to Sugarscape, Zayn and his fellow singers once came to the assistance of a magician by the name of Dynamo. Although this writer is immediately reminded of the character from the classic Arnold Schwarzenegger movie The Running Man, chances are this isn’t the guy Malik and crew helped. But it’s fun to pretend.
Instead of helping Dynamo with one of his fantastic magic acts (we’re giving him the benefit of the doubt), Zayn Malik and the rest of One Direction helped the guy move his car from the wintry confines of a snow drift. While that may not sound like a remarkable feat, apparently the magician believed it’s worth discussing.
Dynamo enthusiastically recalls his encounter with the all-mighty Malik.
“Zayn and all his mates saw me struggling and ran over. I was persisting because I was like, ‘I’m Dynamo, I’m going to get out of this.’ But they came over. I said, ‘You shouldn’t be pushing’, and he went, ‘Nah man, I’ve got to help a Bradford lad out.'”
So there you have it, folks. Zayn Malik is one of the coolest cats on the entire planet. Even though he could easily have one of his beefy handlers move the car for Dynamo, he used his own muscles to shove the car out of the snow. If you’re not a fan of Zayn, then you really need to reevaluate your principles.
If you’ve never seen Dynamo, then here’s a handy photograph.

The Inquisitr previously reported that Malik is a little shocked that 1D is as famous as they are these days. Considering Zayn and the guys are willing to help out someone in need, it’s no wonder they’re getting love from around the world.
Zayn recently dished about their success during a chat with Top of the Pops magazine. If nothing else, at least the guy is extraordinarily humble.
“We’re just as surprised about it as anyone else is, to be honest. We didn’t really expect any of it and it’s just crazy to see how it’s happened.”
What do you think about Zayn Malik lending a helping hands to Dynamo, the magician?
