Downton Abbey Vs One Direction: The Video We're Obsessed With

Maggie Smith as Lady Violet in Downton Abbey
The mahe-up sees the Downton Abbey cast say the lyrics to What Makes You Beautiful

Calling all Downton Abbey and One Direction fans! We've just encountered the most hilarious video your eyes will ever see.

Some bright spark on YouTube (thank you, Buchan39) has created the ultimate mash-up of our favourite period drama with a One Direction song, creating a hilarious three-minute video which sees the cast recite the lyrics to What Makes You Beautiful.

Using tiny one-word snippets from the ITV drama, the video has been edited to see the likes of Lady Mary (Michelle Dockery) and Lady Violet (Maggie Smith) singing our favourite track and IT. IS. HILARIOUS.

Some lines have been changed for your viewing pleasure - one of our favourites includes: "The way that you do your hair makes me flabbergasted."

We're hoping that Comic Relief bosses come up with something similar for Red Nose Day next month. This is the funniest thing we've seen in ages. 

Now we just need to see Harry Styles and his bandmates in an episode of Downton Abbey... swoon.
