Can you feel that? It’s One Direction infection continuing to spread worldwide. The boy band’s Up All Night concert DVD (released on May 29) has already reached #1 in 25 countries. So if you’re residing in the US, UK, Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Denmark, France, Finland, Hong Kong, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Philippines, Poland, Portugal, Singapore, Spain, Sweden and Turkey then you probably know someone obsessed with the adorable fivesome — like, say, Malia Obama.
As 1D attempts global domination, they’re breaking records in the States. Up All Night is currently at #1 on the Billboard DVD chart and for the first time in history has outsold current Billboard chart-topper John Mayer this week — by over 10,000 copies! Could its success have something to do with the group’s currently sold-out 27-show North American tour? We mean, there must be an awful lot of fans hungry for a One Direction live concert experience, and when tickets are scarce, a DVD is the next best option.
