When One Direction hit us right in the feels and released their 'History' music video last week all the skeptics out there read into the ending - which sees Harry, Liam, Louis and Niall walking in *different* directions - as a sign they're splitting up. Yawn, whatever, NEXT. But now directors Ben Winston,Calvin Aurand and Gabe Turner have revealed the original ending was actually a very different story before they decided to cut it.
Oh, and it's gonna make you feel so much better about the situation.
Ben, Calv and Gabe have been dishing all the behind-the-scenes deets on the vid to MTV, and apparently the ending that ended up on the cutting room floor could've put a stop to all that 'breaking up' bollocks before it even begun.
Chatting about it all, Ben said: "Well actually, I see that a bit too much has been read into that one. I think too much has been read into that ending where they walk off in different directions. Because actually, they do run back together at the end. But I don't know why…Gabe, why did we cut that last shot where they run back together at the end?"
Gabe explained: "It just didn't look that great. But there certainly wasn't any… it wasn't supposed to be them walking off, it was just kind of like an, 'OK, see you in a bit, guys,'" with Ben adding: "Yeah, we probably should've included that ending, because people have read into it."
Well that's nice to know, innit? Also a massive middle finger to all the naysayers trying to piss on our parade. HA.
Also, in what could quite possibly be the cutest quote of all time, Calvin described the boys' bond. He told MTV: "I would say, from day one, they're brothers. That's what they are. And they've been that way since day one. I've just never seen them to be anything but brothers. They have each other's backs and that's what they do. I mean, I don't think you can accomplish what they've accomplished without understanding the common goal and then going and making it happen. And I think ultimately, too, they're all so focused on the fans.
"If you watch their social accounts — and their personal social accounts, I'm not talking about the One Direction account, I'm talking individually — they're always so gracious to the fans and know how important they are to them. So I just think that that's kind of the commonality. That's always been the one truth from the beginning."
Oh CHRIST, someone send help.
