Watch as he tries to comprehend the news that Demi Lovato not only knows who they are, but has a crush on them. There’s awe, joy, and terror in those eyes, and that’s what makes One Direction so interesting. They are so relentlessly giffable. Every thought, every action, every little thing they do, is ripe for the giffing. That’s how they became so famous so fast. As the first Tumblr-created superstars, they understand the medium of gifs in a way that no other other celebrity has yet to figure out. They instinctively respond to every situation in 3-10 second “bits” that tell a complete story, which gets turned into a giff which is then blogged and reblogged endlessly, making them more and more famous. They are the perfect post-millennial pop stars who have met the perfect post-millennial medium. Andy would have loved them.
