Okay, maybe not exactly, but certain members of the popular British boy-band are apparently stoked (and toked) about filming their road trip “high”- jinks with their newest member, Mary Jane. Check out the full video below.
The video, which surfaced on Tuesday (May 27), shows band members Zayn Malik and Louis Tomlinson apparently smoking marijuana and joking about it as police officers drive alongside their motorcade during the Latin America leg of their 2014 Stadium Tour. The footage is a serious blow to the clean-cut image the band once projected to both their teenage fans and their parents.
Of course, the mainstream press likes to throw out words like “allegedly,” but I think we all know what’s going on here as band member, and de facto narrator, Louis Tomlinson gives us a play-by-play of the festivities. “Here we are, leaving Peru. Joint lit. Happy Days!” Thanks for the color commentary, Louis.
It’s also made pretty plain that this isn’t a one time thing, as Louis gives us a little insight into Zayn’s regular pre-show “warm-up” ritual. “Zayn takes his job very seriously,” states Louis in feigned serious tones. “He makes sure he goes through a two hour intense warm-up before every show, just to get himself in the zone for the show. One very very important factor of Zayn’s warm up, of course, is Mary J herself.”
Could the band’s drug-fueled carelessness cost them in the future? In a moment of apparent lucidity, Louis verbalizes the same thought. “I’m just wondering now, we’re sitting here in Peru. Will this come back to me? Who knows? Maybe. Maybe not.”
Only time will tell.
