In news that will make you want to smack your friends round the back of the head and demand a bit of hero-worship, 5SOS have gone all-out in celebration of Michael Clifford's 21st year on this crazy, unpredictable planet.

Proving that everything from microbes to small woodland creatures to the rest of 5SOS are all drawn to Michael's magnetic soul, each member of the band had something touching to say about him being legally allowed to drink a beer in the US.

Luke also had a touching message for the birthday boy, despite the slightly awkward fact he got his pal's @ wrong: "Happy birthday @michaelclifford there's too much to say but you're my best friend and I love you"

Also shout-out to The Other Michael Clifford's Twitter bio: "I'm probably not the Michael Clifford you are looking for." True.

Then it was down to Calum to really twist the knife into our already aching hearts: "14 years I've known this guy and today is his birthday. So proud of the man he's become. I have so much love and time for @michaelclifford."

Oh jeez, someone safety pin the pieces of our tender hearts back together.

HAPPY 21ST BIRTHDAY MICHAEL. WE HOPE IT'S A MAGICAL ONE.
