The shots of Louis Tomlinson driving the guys around in “What makes You Beautiful” almost had to be cut out because of the police.
“The cops were saying ‘Hold on,’ and I’m telling them to go. Literally, [the officers] came up, and they were screaming at us, and they walked away and we all laughed inside the car. I was like, ‘Look guys, we have to pay attention to them because if they shut us down, we can’t use the highway,'” John Urbano, the director of the video revealed.
As it turns out, Louis was driving way too slow by traffic law standards, but it was because John was filming the driving scenes from the backseat of the car, instead of filming the typical way of hooking up the car to a trailer in front that would pull it along.
