Our friends over at MTV have an exclusive clip from the One Direction concert movie This Is Us which is hitting U.S. theaters August 30. You can check it out below. Watching Harry Styles try to learn even rudimentary dance steps in the clip below is pretty amusing *NSync and Backstreet Boys members must spinning in their boy band graves. All that work they put into choreography, and it probably didn’t even matter.
This clip has other diversions. Like Zayn Malik‘s money quote: “When people say ‘You’re in a boy band’ I’m like ‘Yeah but I’m in a cool boy band!'” Oh Zayn, bless your pretty little heart.
One Direction performs at the VMAS this Sunday at 9pm on MTV
