Cheeky musical quintet One Direction took a sneaky, secret visit to an impoverished region of Ghana a few days ago as part of the UK's Red Nose Day/Comic Relief effort, which helps raise money to alleviate poverty…
And not only did the boyband members enjoy their trip — where they also filmed scenes for a Comic Relief music video cover of Blondie's One Way or Another — it seems the dudes also learned a thing or two about the state of the world!
In fact, the band's newest legal driver Niall Horan apparently had an "a ha" moment, as evidenced by his tweet:
Awww Niall! SO cute in the most naive sort of way!
Niall's "life changing" experience even caused him to realize how "selfish" people are. In a direct message to a fan Niall wrote:
"We all are the most selfish people ever! U would not believe that country."
And while this realization comes rather late in life for Mr. Horan, we just think it's ALWAYS inspiring when celebs attempt to use their influence and fame for ANY social good!
Very impressive boys!
