Directed by Ben and Gabe Turner, One Direction shoot for the stars in this cinematic NASA mission video for their song Drag Me Down. 

Marking their first music video release since the departure of singer Zayn Malik, the video goes above and beyond showing the foursome as united and resolute as ever. Shot at the NASA Space Center in Houston, Texas, it sees the young men preparing for take off through a series of drills, exercises and training sessions. And when the shuttle finally launches, it's clear that nothing - not even Earth's gravitational pull - will drag the lads down.
