One Direction took the #CutestSelfieEver on Jimmy Kimmel, and damn near broke the internet

One Direction fans are AGHAST.

ONE DIRECTION APPEARED on Jimmy Kimmel last night, promoting their new album Four.

And Kimmel had a very special surprise in store. “This is how you break the internet,” he told viewers. In your face, Kim Kardashian.

And how? By making the band take the “cutest selfie ever”. Here’s how it worked:

It started out as just a regular selfie…

… then he added stuffed animals…

… a cute kid…

… some kittens in a giant teacup…


… and a baby dressed as a giant cherry. Among other things.

The final result was… magnificent?

And predictably, the internet more or less exploded.

There were sleepless nights:

There were tears.

There was jealousy of the kids involved.

There were memes.

And there were ruthless edits.

AH, internet.
