4. Potential looks taken from other gay-ish musical groups

The "producers" of their movie (Niall Horan and Tomlinson in costume) want a new public image for the band, and all the suggestions are clearly just photos of The Backstreet Boys, 'N Sync, New Kids On the Block, and the best—The Village People, and what looks like a male version of the "Single Ladies" dancers.

Those outfits are timeless. And they're all obviously attached, both physically and emotionally, to their skinny jeans.
