GIF Party Friday: One Direction Edition!

A picture’s worth a thousand words, but I’d say that a GIF is worth a million. We ask you — what complex, nuanced emotion can’t be summed up in a GIF? In fact, we’d say it’s the perfect art form. So perfect, in fact, that we’ve decided to do a massive GIF roundup of One Direction’s best moments, from selling out stadiums, to goofing around on set and everything in between. If you prefer to chart their meteoric rise from the bottom to the top, you can check out their awesome Tumblr GIF timeline over here. Or, if you prefer to just watch these lads being lads on infinite loop, check out our MASSIVE GIF wall below, and be sure to catch their latest movie “One Direction: This Is Us”, in theaters September 30.
