Supercuts quintet One Direction appeared on “Sesame Street” to serenade the letter “U,” and as expected the results were adorable.
Kind of shocked One Direction chose to dredge up a years-old single instead of parodying a new release, but I guess the joke only works with a very familiar song. Cute video! I still think “What Makes You Beautiful” is condescending and that some sassy girl group should write a response ditty called “What Makes U Think I Don't Know I'm Beautiful (You Patronizing Trolls)?” but it's cute!
Just one more thing: Queen Melissa Etheridge did this bit first and better.
