Disappointingly lame One Direction video has most YouTube views in single day

This is One Direction’s latest effort. The video tries to pretend at having a story to it, but quickly devolves into meaningless chaos as the boys run amok in a record label office tossing over desks and doing the choreographed dance moves they promised they would never do.
