Watch Amy Schumer Parody One Direction in Hilarious ‘Girl You Don’t Need Makeup’ Video
The boys in Amy's boy band aren't dead ringers for Harry, Liam, Niall and Louis, and they bust out some very un-characteristically 1D dance moves. But there are four of them, and the song's pretty "What Makes You Beautiful"-reminiscent.
The boys begin their song by telling Amy, Girl you don't need makeup / You're perfect when you wake up/ Just walk around like that all day. But when the comedian joyfully tissues off her face, the boys change their tune right away: "You'll be the hottest girl in the nation / With just a touch of foundation." How many women have heard their boyfriend tell them they should go makeup-free, only to come back with a "hey...are you okay? You look kind of tired" when their girlfriend actually skips the mascara? The answer is: So many women.
By the end of the video, Amy is cartoonishly slathered in cosmetics as the boys urge her on: "Think of a clown, and then work your way back." It basically looks like a box of markers exploded on her face, or a Lion King cast member seriously mis-applied. It's a hilarious send-up of both makeup and boy bands, and one that resonated on Twitter during and after the show as people tweeted their bare faces with the hashtag #girlyoudontneedmakeup. Amazing.
