I REALLY don’t know what to say right now.
The last two videos prior to this, I’ve gotten incredibly annoyed by the negativity, shook my head, sighed, and wondered why nothing was ever good enough for some of this fandom.
Unpopular opinion: I liked Midnight Memories. A lot. I *liked* the fact that, instead of making it a typical couple video, they interpreted it
differently & didn’t go the predictable route. They made it about doing crazy things with your friends. Which, to me, is more what signifies midnight memories than yet another video about sex. Yet all I heard was complaints because everyone thought their ‘mature sound’ should have ‘mature videos.’
IE: Wahh, why didn’t they make it about hooking up?!
I liked Story Of My Life. I’d have liked it more had it not been spoiled ahead of time, at a time I wasn’t expecting to see gifs of it, but, it too was
a different concept. All I heard for that was: What does this have to do with the song?! What did it *not* have to do with the song?! It made perfect sense. neither were as epic as Best Song Ever, Kiss You, OWOA, but, not every video is.
But, this video… was just not that great. There was very little going on in it, there was no action, & the morphing did nothing but elicit 50,000
shipper comments about various couples. I literally *cringed* when Louis turned into Harry, & braced myself for what I knew was coming. I cringed again at that super close-up of obviously sick Harry.
On top of all that, the only one that looked like he hadn’t been through a tornado was Zayn.
So, I apologize, if, after two videos of shaking my head at the negativity, I am contributing to it, but yeah. Not their best work.
(Still not agreeing with the ‘make this a typical couples video comments, though.)
