Video: The Cast of ‘Downton Abbey’ Sings One Direction (Yes, Even Carson)
Need a little pick-me-up to help you get over the shocking season three finale of ‘Downton Abbey?’ Have a video of the cast performing One Direction’s “What Makes You Beautiful.”
Okay, so maybe they aren’t REALLY singing One Direction—it’s more like that awesome supercut that made the rounds last January that made President Obama sing “Born This Way”—but believe you me, you do NOT want to miss this one.
Using footage from all three seasons and both Christmas specials, clever YouTuber and comedian Richard Sandling has made the cast of Downton Abbey perform Brit pop group One Direction’s hit, “What Makes You Beautiful.” Even Carson. ESPECIALLY Carson. Goodness knows we could all use a bit of Downton comedy after the third season’s shocking finale! Watch it here:
The video was made for Richard Sandling’s Perfect Movie, a monthly live comedy show that performs at London’s Leicester Square Theatre, so all you lucky Bettys across the pond should go check it out and let those of us who live Stateside know how it is.
For comparison purposes, here’s One Direction’s official music video for “What Makes You Beautiful”:
