One Direction, Addison Lee


Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Zayn Malik, and yes, Louis Tomlinson can probably all afford the occasional cab ride.

But thanks to the boys' "Midnight Memories" music video—and Louis' cheeky tweet!—One Direction all get free Addison Lee cab rides for an entire year!

Addison Lee, a London-based private hire company for minicab and chauffeur services, have a car featured in the "Midnight Memories" clip, and they're also name checked in the lyrics! Louis sings a verse—twice—about "way too many people in the Addison Lee."

The 22-year-old boy-bander tweeted last Saturday at the minicab company, writing, "Surely we get some kind of @AddisonLeeCabs gold card for the name drop haha !!??"

The cab company tweeted him back , writing, "Best name drop ever! We'll be in touch with a thankyou." Addison Lee then playfully tweeted Louis a picture of a gold car, quipping, "We've got one here for you ready and waiting – give us a call when you need it."

"Joking aside," they clarified, "@Louis_Tomlinson how about a free car for a year?"

Ha. A spokesperson for Addison Lee told the Daily Mail the "Midnight Memories" name check "came completely out of the blue," and "as a thank you we have offered the band free cabs for a year."

'One Direction have been Addison Lee customers since they were on the X Factor," added the cab company spokesperson, "so we were delighted to be mentioned in Midnight Memories."

And if you check out Addison Lee's Twitter page, you can see that their background is now a screenshot of Louis and one of their cabs from the music video.

Enjoy the ride, boys!
