Yes, this video came out last November, but the J-14 Magazine staff still can’t get enough of One Direction’s “Gotta Be You” music video, especially after talking to the guys about it a couple weeks ago backstage at their London concert.
The video was shot around the beginning of October 2011 in New York — and the guys were stoked about shooting their video in the Big Apple, Zayn Malik and Louis Tomlinson told J-14. But when they got to the U.S., they found out they were actually shooting in upstate New York in Lake Placid.
They may not have landed exactly in New York where they expected, but they still loved being in the U.S. — and hanging out in Lake Placid.
“There aren’t actually any crocodiles there – that’s a myth,” Liam Payne said. “There was a lake by our hotel and we went kayaking to find out. When Niall [Horan] turned the boat over, I freaked out because I thought I’d be eaten by an alligator like in the movie!”
Fortunately, the guys all survived — and have this too-cute video to prove it. And One Direction will have an all-new version of “Gotta Be You” on their U.S. version of their album, Up All Night, out March 20.
