1D have used funny routine in music video

The Inbetweeners star James Buckley is thrilled that One Direction are fans of the series.

1D incorporated the funny ‘elbow’ dance routine from The Inbetweeners Movie into the video for their single One Thing and James thinks they’ve actually improved on the original sequence.

‘They do the dance but they make it look good,’ says James, 26.

James, who plays cocky Jay Cartwright, is flattered that the lads are such big fans.

‘They love The Inbetweeners which is great,’ the actor tells The Sun.

‘When I read that Harry Styles introduced Taylor Swift to the Inbetweeners dance when they got together, I texted him and said, “Good lad.”‘

James reprises his role as Jay in The Inbetweeners 2, which hits cinemas on 6 August.
