“Instead of spending a lot of money on a music video we decided to make it ourselves while we were on tour,” member Harry Styles says in the opening of the music video. All the money they saved on the fun clip along with sales from the charity single will be put toward helping the needy in Africa and the United Kingdom. The guys carry a camera around the world and film themselves in very candid moments.
“One Way or Another (Teenage Kicks)” is a mash-up cover of hits from Blondie and The Undertones. One Direction recorded the single for Comic Relief's Red Nose Day charity, which is why there are red noses abound in the video and on the single's cover art. The single was released on Monday, Feb. 18, and is no. 1 in many countries' iTunes worldwide.
