Calm your fluttering hearts, Texans. British band One Direction was recently in the Lone State State, filming an out-of-this-world video that launched on Thursday.
"Drag Me Down" features the remaining four members of the boy band at NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston, wearing orange space suits and singing in a hangar filled with jets. Those jets, some NASA T-38s, are used to train astronauts for space flight.
Far out, man!
The band famously lost its fifth member, Zayn Malik, in March. But his departure can't drag the boys down. They're up, up, up with this new video that, in less than a day, has notched 2.2 million views on YouTube. It had to have been fun for Louis Tomlinson, who got to drive the Space Exploration Vehicle rover, or for Niall Horan, featured with the Partial Gravity Simulator.
One Direction released the song "Drag Me Down" on July 31. It sold more than 500,000 copies in its first week, according to a statement, and was the band's fastest-selling single in America.
