The group reveal details about their much-anticipated video ahead of its release in 2013.

One Direction have teased their forthcoming new video for 'Kiss You', describing it as "pure stupidity".

The group unveiled a teaser for the video earlier this month, followed by a 'Kiss You' lyric video on Thursday (21st December).

Liam Payne said the video, which is expected to premiere on 7th January 2013, was "loads of fun" to make.

"Stupid dancing, loads of different locations and lots of fun," he told MTV News.

Harry Styles added that the video, which saw them team up again with Vaughn Arnell – the director of One Direction's 'Live While We're Young' and 'Little Things' videos – was "our favourite one that we've done so far".

Zayn Malik said: "I think the whole concept behind the video is bigger than anything we've done before.

"It's a whole idea and it's kind of structured, which is a little bit different than what we've done before in like a comedy way. It's really funny. We are just having fun."

'Kiss You' is the third single to be taken from One Direction's second album 'Take Me Home', which has now sold over one million copies in America since its release in November.
