After a week of video teasers, One Direction finally released the official clip for their new single “Best Song Ever” today (July 22).

Filmed in Miami, the Ben Winston-directed clip has the boys showing off their acting chops in some very unexpected roles.

At the start of the video we see two bald and grey-haired movie execs, played by Louis and Niall, gossiping in a big office before the band meets them to discuss their next film. Once One Direction join them for a meeting the execs promise the band a new movie that is “better than Forrest Gump, funnier than The Hangover, sadder than the Titanic.” Better than okay, the execs say it will be “award-winning.”

Meanwhile, the guys check out sexy assistant Veronica as she brings them drinks. Only upon the video credits do we realize she is played by Zayn, who makes a very convincing woman.

Nerdy marketing guy Marcel, played by Harry, enters the meeting to explain the movie concept as a major dance number. In comes energetic choreographer Leeroy, played by Liam, to show off some of the dances. “Dance is just so hot right now!” Marcel tells the guys.

Not fans of the film script, or the styling that Marcel has planned for them (he thinks they’d look good in leather or the same duds that The Village People once wore), the guys begin to trash the office.

Interestingly enough though, One Direction do come to add their own bit of choreography once the music starts. Fans also get a little sneak peek of their upcoming movie, 1D: This Is Us, which will hit theaters on August 30.
