If you're a One Direction fan you'll understand that weird jolt of surprise when someone makes a reference to the band when you're completely not expecting it, and, as it turns out - members of the actual band have also experienced that same level of surprise.
The story begins with Liam Payne, who decided it was high time he put his feet up and tune into a bit of American Dad. So far so normal, until the characters in the show referenced his band's movie in reference to torture tactics.
Yep, This Is Us (which has been added to Netflix UK if you have the sudden urge to watch it) just got a shout-out on actual TV - with Liam posting the clip to his Instagram page to share the moment with the world.
