The Making Of One Direction “Drag Me Down” Video – WATCH!
One Direction released on Friday its brand new music video “Drag Me Down,” in which Harry Styles and his band mates are seen preparing for an outer space mission, and now Gossip Cop has a behind-the-scenes sneak peek at how it was made. Watch below.
In the music video, One Direction filmed scenes in different parts of NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston, though never actually lifted off into space. However, they did get to drive cool NASA vehicles and meet robots. One location the singers filmed at was the NASA WB-57 High Altitude Research Aircraft, which is used for high atmosphere research work. The band also got to hang out in the Space Vehicle Mockup Facility, which is where astronauts train.
The boys also got to visit some cool places on their own to film solo scenes in the video. Styles met Robonaut, a robot that mimics human movement and is currently on the International Space Station (ISS) 250 miles above Earth. Liam Payne actually boarded a replica of the ISS, while Louis Tomlinson got behind the wheel of the Space Exploration Vehicle rover, which could eventually be used to study the surface of Mars. And Niall Horan was seen in the Partial Gravity Simulator, which makes you feel like you’re actually floating in outer space.
One Direction also got to wear orange spacesuits for the video, and film a scene aboard the Orion Spacecraft, which can travel deep into space. Watch the behind-the-scenes video below of the making of “Drag Me Down,” and tell us what you think. Note: Video no longer available.
