One Direction invite NFL star Drew Brees to join the band in their new Pepsi viral video

One Direction fans are in for a sugar confection as the band become stars of a new Pepsi viral video.

The two minute mockumentary sees One Direction re-brand as 1DB when Drew Brees joins the band. One Direction don't seem enthusiastic about their newest member and the inevitable hilarity ensues.

Zayn Malik, who's responsible for this flat performance, criticises Brees as being "monotone", while Niall Horan belabours the sixth member says, "we're fine on our own."

It's all quite funny in the same cringeworthy way that Mrs Brown's Boys is funny, but we're not sure how it relates to Pepsi. Well, other than the fact that Pepsi sponsors Simon Cowell's The X Factor USA. Oh, and the fact that One Direction are Simon Cowell's latest prized cash-cow.
