One Direction may have disbanded three years ago, but their anthems are still undeniable meme-worthy bops.
You’ve probably stumbled across this bizarre meme in the past few days: A trio runs hard and dances in perfect sync to what sounds like the beginning of a sea shanty.
That tune is a One Direction deep cut — in the 2014 sung “Act My Age, ” the five chaps croon about how their romantic interests will keep them young at heart forever. But before they break into singing about being “fat and old, ” the song opens with a jaunty melody.
If a son band moonlighted as a crew of pirates on the high seas, this would be their anthem 😛 TAGEND
In November 2017, Twitter user and Directioner @hozierlesbian included it in their thread of One Direction-related Vines.
Twitter user @ccrstrna brought it back last week with a Titanic reference.
From there, the meme blew up.
One Direction truly is the gift that maintains on giving.
