On Feb. 20, 2013, the music video for One Direction's "One Way or Another (Teenage Kicks)" premiered, and some fans are calling it One Direction's best video so far.
One Direction's "One Way or Another (Teenage Kicks)" is a charity single for Comic Relief's "Red Nose Day." The song is a remake mash-up of Blondie's "One Way or Another" and the Undertones' "Teenage Kicks."
As previously reported, the song (which was released on Feb. 17, Feb. 18 or Feb. 19, 2013, depending on the country) rocketed to No. 1 on iTunes in many countries in the song's first day of release. Based on first-week sales, "One Way or Another (Teenage Kicks)" is sure to be a Top 10 hit in several countries.
Instead of having a professional director helm the "One Way or Another (Teenage Kicks)" video, One Direction self-filmed the video. The money that would have been used for a professional video crew was donated to Comic Relief.
Naturally, One Direction fans all over the Internet have been saying how much they love the video, which was filmed in different countries, including the United Kingdom, the United States, Japan and Ghana. As previously reported, U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron makes a cameo in the video at the famed No. 10 Downing Street.
Many of the fans have been commenting on the scenes that feature One Direction's Niall Horan, 19, in the shower. Horan and the other members of One Direction (21-year-old Louis Tomlinson, 19-year-old Harry Styles, 20-year-old Zayn Malik and 19-year-old Liam Payne) are shown in various situations trying to look goofy and comical.
One Direction did its first live performance of "One Way or Another (Teenage Kicks)" at the 2013 Brit Awards on Feb. 20. At the awards show (which was held at the O2 Arena in London), One Direction won the prize for Best Brits Global Success. It was One Direction's second Brit Award. In 2012, One Direction's "What Makes You Beautiful" won the Brit Award for Best British Single.
