One Direction, also known as 1D, is an English-Irish pop boy band formed in London after finishing third in the hit singing competition, The X Factor, back in 2010. Initially composed of five members Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, and Zayn Malik, they released their debut studio album Up All Night, which was an international success and even became the UK’s fastest-selling album of 2011. As of 2020, the band has sold a whopping 70 million records worldwide, easily making them one of the best-selling boy bands of all time. However, as the saying all good things must come to an end goes, One Direction went on an indefinite hiatus after the release of the music video for their sentimental single, History.

Devise a very engaging script, such as “Hello, this is Liam Payne’s manager. We have received the pregnancy test results that you mailed us and Liam is ready to take on the responsibility of being a father and a husband. First off, what should we name the child?” or “Hello, is this *insert name*? I am Harry Styles and rumors are circulating that I got you pregnant. Is this true?”
Make sure to record the conversation so you have something to look at in the future. Good luck!
Simon Cowell Will Bring Back One Direction Prank Call
This One Direction prank call idea is for the Directioners who are still hung up on the group’s breakup. The idea is simple, you would want your prank victim to believe that you are Simon Cowell, the man behind the boy band’s formation. All you have to do is to use this hilarious script to fool your friends that with just a wire transfer of $1000, you can actually bring the 5 members back for another album!
“Hey, *insert name. This is Simon Cowell, you know, the man behind One Direction. Listen, what if I have a very top secret information for you: I can bring all 5 members back together for another studio album. Here’s the thing, we are actually a thousand dollars short for the mass production of the album. If you could wire me the missing amount, we’ll release the album right away.”
