I don’t know if anyone made a detailed anaylsis of what’s happening in this video,but it’s one of my favorites and I was just re-watching it and flailing my arms like a fangirl that I am so I thought I’d just put it out there,I really can’t help myself. It’s mostly about Captain Tommo being the best captain(and a fanboy) and still managing to squeeze the adoration for his boyfriend in there(like he always does).
It all starts already around 0:15.We have Tommo looking at Harry lovingly,smiling to himself and then Zayn notices and at 0:20 he smiles as well(Liam’s already starting at him at this point,I can’t get over how smitten he looks through the whole thing)and Louis looks at Liam,sees him staring and wiggles his eyebrows and Liam does it back at him.
Zayn starts singing with that stupid little smile on his face that I just…ugh,I want them to be happy like that all the time,is it too much to ask?
0:52 Liam can’t refrain from staring at his boyfriend,look at this face,I can’t.
0:59 Louis is acting pretty much like me right now(while Liam is singing to Zayn,again),but he’s trying NOT to.That look of acknowledgement and the way he bows his head to stop smiling at 1:02 is too adorable.
1:17 Tommo is grinning again.Some say it’s because Zayn messed up.No,it’s not,he’s been smiling through the whole video.
Then it’s his turn to sing and he’s smiling and fluttering his pretty eyelashes and I just need a moment.
1:45 Lou looks at Liam with that look again that’s all “Hurhurhur Payne,you lovestruck fool”while Zayn’s stealing glances.
2:05 Some more staring probably happened but it was while the camera was on Harry and Niall,Zayn looked either at Louis or Liam(or both)and he has that crooked smile on his face while Liam is looking at him like sun is shining out of his ass,and Louis is grinning,AGAIN.
2:11 It’s like Tommo has a radar for his ship or smt.Zayn looks at Liam and Louis looks at Zayn’s and is like “Gotcha there,Malik”and Zayn looks up with the innocent look and “I wasn’t looking” face.Sure,you’re trying to fool the expert here,like Louis(me too) hadn’t mastered that one.
2:28 Louis’ turn to stare at his boyfriend like he is the sun and the stars and the reason that the world wakes up every day.Nbd.But Liam,jfc,this is the part that just makes me want to jump off a cliff.Watch him carefully.Louis looks at him(more like,he’s snapped out of starting at Harry),sees he’s not looking at him and just goes back to staring at Harry.But Liam,oh Liam is like a girl with the biggest fucking crush,the one where everyone knows it but she won’t admit it. 2:31,Zayn looks at him,and he looks at the ground because he was caught staring(and Liam is clenching that poor speaker)and Liam does the same. 2:47 he decides to stare again,and he SMILES to himself(because,hello,Zayn),and fidgets a little and tries to not start smiling like an idiot(youcanevenseehislittledimpleBUSTED) but Tommo notices(2:51),he looks at Liam and smiles that knowing smile he’s been doing throughout the whole thing(while Zayn is enjoying the song and probably imagining Liam naked because he looks too into it,but hey,that might be how I see it).
3:08 Now,Lou is smiling at Niall,probably praising his solo silently(awwww)and is back to staring at his pretty cupcake some more(and Liam is staring at Zayn again)
3:26 Harry looks at Louis,Louis is already staring,Zayn and Liam are seemingly singing to each other(“I won’t let these little things slip out of my mouth”,not that there’s anything little there but I like the “slip out of my mouth” part…I need therapy.)Lou start smiling at his stupid boyfriend and bows his head and at 3:33 Harry is grinning like an idiot as well(and I’m having heart palpitations).
3:40 “I’m in love with you” look at the camera then look at your boyfriend and then look back at the camera as fast as you can so people don’t notice.(but in the words of Liam Payne himself “They think we don’t see,but we see everything”.That sounds a little creepy.It’s the internet’s fault,I’m not usually this creepy,I swear.) 3:43,Liam’s turn to do the same.
I love how Harry and Liam are standing in the end,with their feet together(though that’s how Harry usually stands)and holding the microphone like they’ve been sent to the corner in kindergarten.I’ll leave my “mind in the gutter” comment about that one unsaid,I really need to tone it down…and I probably shouldn’t put the reference of a child in kindergarten with the things I was implying there.I’m going to Hell.
