Zayn Malik probably sees girls doing crazy things to get One Direction to direct their attention to them all the time, so it’s a little surprising that he completely flipped out when a fan flashed him in Sweden.
The guys were standing on a balcony being major teases when the incident occurred. Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan, Liam Payne, and Zayn were taking turns getting a crowd of screaming girls all riled up by shouting at them through a megaphone, but apparently the girls didn’t care much about what the guys were saying since they wouldn’t quiet down long enough to hear them.
Zayn Malik and his mates seem to be having a grand old time in the video footage of their balcony appearance, laughing and pointing into the crowd (probably because some girls were holding signs with naughty things written on them). At one point Niall Horan tries to quiet the screaming by holding his finger to his lips; Louis Tomlinson pretends like he’s going to jump over the rail; and Zayn does a little “raise the roof” dance.
Ultimately all of the band’s teasing proved to be too much for one Directioner, who apparently flashed the guys in hopes of getting their attention. And she obviously caught Zayn Malik’s eyeÂ—he completely freaked out by screaming; throwing his hand in front of his face; and running away from the rail (you would think that the girl flashing him was about to fling a grenade at him). The experience rattled him so much that he had to go lean on Louis Tomlinson for support.
You can check out the video of Zayn’s reaction below, which happens at about the 4:40 mark. Directioners will enjoy reminiscing about the good ol’ days back before poor innocent Zayn shacked up with Perrie Edwards.
