One Direction “History” video has its own story to tell. In an interview with MTV, the video’s three directors revealed the truth behind it.
Ben Winston, Calvin Aurand and Gabe Turner each have their own history with One Direction.
Winston and Turner directed and produced previous videos of the band. Aurand worked as their official photographer for four years.
The video for “History,” the last track on 1D’s album “Made In The A.M.,” aired on January 26. It shows each member walking away at the end. This left fans speculating about the band breaking up.
Apparently, the directors’ cut out the original ending.
According to Winston, “originally they ran in separate directions and then they ran back together and that’s actually how it was planned.”
However, they cut the scene. Turner explained, “It just didn’t look that great.” He added, “It wasn’t supposed to be them walking off, it was just kind of like an, ‘OK, see you in a bit, guys!’”
Aurand also said, “I think ultimately it’s just an end to a video. There shouldn’t be anything applied deeper than that.”
Liam Payne earlier confirmed the band’s decision to take a break by March 2016.
However, news that the hiatus will turn into a permanent breakup came out recently in US Weekly. Fans immediately posted their reactions to the news via Twitter.
Some sources say @onedirection split up. I don't believe it, I will wait for the end of the hiatus until the boys say they are quitting!

The media is doing this to get attention, they want us to believe that One Direction is going to break up. Don't believe a word they say.
