A poet prankster has tried to steal One Direction’s thunder by turning their latest track Steal My Girl into a creepy ditty.
The video, by a YouTube subscriber called MartiansBrain, features a dark screen and what looks like someone sneaking up on a woman from behind.
As the sparse, ominous music kicks in, the video then cuts to shots of a woman’s ear, mouth, hands and an unrecognisable body part that features lots of veins.
The poem is read out by a man with an American accent and features classic lines such as: ‘Her mum calls me love/her dad calls me son/I know, I know, I know for sure everybody wanna steal my girl/everybody wants to take her heart away/she belongs to me/kisses like cream/her walk is so mean.
‘She knows that I never let her down before/she knows I’m never gonna let another take her love from me now/everybody wanna steal my girl.’
The sinister music, that wouldn’t be out of place in a horror film, only adds to the menacing experience. The track ends with the ‘poet’ repeating ‘she belongs to me’ over and over.
Suffice to say, it sounds nothing like the cheery One Direction song of the same name, which is the lead single on their soon-to-be-released fourth studio album Four.
This is recommended as an antidote to anyone who clicks on MartiansBrain’s version by mistake.
