This month had a very good start, especially for the Filipino fans of One Direction (called as Juan Directioners) like me.
1. Little Things' MV was released last November 02 (November 03 here).
2. "Take Me Home" album release on November 12.
3. "Take Me Home" album launch is on November 17.
4. One Direction's interview on Startalk~ I always get giddy whenever they mention the Philippines. :)
5. One Direction on Myx Take 5
6. Ricky Lo's writeup on The Philippine Star about One Direction yesterday (November 04)
7. One Direction's billlboards for Penshoppe now out in C5 and EDSA.
So excited for the next few months! I am really crossing my fingers for a One Direction concert in my country soon! :)
After enticing the fans with five teasers (one for each member) last week, the video for One Direction's newest song "Little Things" finally premiered on One Direction's VEVO channel in Youtube at 5PM GMT (1AM PST) last November 02, 2012 (November 03 here in the Philippines).
As early as 7PM last Friday, I was already online, busy checking on my Facebook and Twitter for updates + spazzing with my Directioner friends. The premiere was 6 hours away so I just stayed online because if I go to sleep, I might not wake up at 1AM. I really wanted to be part of history and be one of those who got to witness the premiere. Louis, Niall, and Harry were also online on Twitter.
Meanwhile... some of One Direction's new songs from "Take Me Home" leaked out on the Internet a few days before the release of the new album. I got to listen to some snippets, and it made me more excited. "They Don't Know About Us" has a really nice intro~ and the fact that Louis and Harry took part in the songwriting makes my shipper heart happy. ♥
So basically, as 1AM approaches, I'm getting more nervous and excited at the same time. I tweeted the number of hours left from time to time. At 12:30AM, everyone on Twitter was also making the countdown. The suspense grows stronger by the minute. 15 minutes, 10 minutes, 5 minutes, 1 minute left till the premiere~ everyone was refreshing the One Direction VEVO Youtube channel.
The clock hit 1AM~ and everyone was wondering why the video hasn't come out yet. At 1:03AM, the video finally appeared.
TWITTER PRACTICALLY STOPPED FOR 3.38 MINUTES.
I was so overwhelmed that I teared up while watching the video. To say that the video is perfect is an understatement.
The black and white theme + the recording studio setup is just perfect. The boys looked ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS AND STUNNING. The video has a very laid-back mood which complemented the feel of the song. Unlike their previous videos, "Little Things" showed the mature side (except for Zayn poking Harry XD) of One Direction.
This is way too cute to be unnoticed. Zarry ♥ :D
More spazzing ensued after watching the video. Everyone was raving about how awesome the guys are and how they "died" whenever one member's face was zoomed. I screencapped the members' faces while running out of breath. XD
TOO MUCH HANDSOMENESS ON THE SCREENNNNNNNN~ GAAAAHHHH
THAT STARE. /dies/
Lee-yum looks kinda serious here~
Louis' mismatched eyes ♥
The fact that Niall plays the guitar in this song = ♥
YOU ARE SO HANDSOME, ZAYN. ♥ I AM SO DONE HERE. *dies*
I DIED OKAY?
So yeah. Being able to watch the premiere of "Little Things" with the other fans from around the world is really a nice experience for me. I have nothing but praises for everyone behind the song (ALL HAIL ED SHEERAN) and the video for coming up with an awesome interpretation of this love song. ♥
Everything about "Little Things" is just perfect.
