The boy band hit 'What Makes You Beautiful' is a guilty pleasure of many grown-ups, and this One Direction parody song exposes the craze to the world.

The British boy band One Direction has become a ubiquitous commodity in the pop culture scene, yet the fact they are all young teenagers makes listening to these tween sensations feel odd at times. This provides the Jest website with hilarious content for its original video that entertainingly spoofs the song 'What Makes You Beautiful.' Comedic lines such as "We know its meant for little girls/but we can agree/Its okay to like this song," will have this catchy tune stuck in your heard.

Furthermore, the song points out the increasingly common development of women becoming fanatics about tween/teen phenomenas from Twilight to Gossip Girl. Stats for Boy Band Spoof Pieces Trending: Older & Chilly
