One Direction were totally swamped with fans when they performed on The Today Show in New York yesterday, but managed to keep a pretty dignified looking stage presence about themselves, despite being in the middle of something similar to a zombie attack.

Zayn did look somewhat stressed, but we'll just put that down to all the passion he summed up to tell everyone about what happens to him when they flip their hair.

Niall seemed to show slight distress but on the whole just looked like he was gazing longingly at a pretzel stand.
