Les Chevaliers…

My four year old (nearly five) drew a portrait of me (on the left) and my SO was asking him about it. He said the marks on the top were decorations and on the bottom is my smile, and that he was trying to make it a smile like I’d “just finished having a snack.” lol! He’s got me all figured out, that kid.

The other two paintings are of crocuses. He’s just as taken by those little flowers as I am. :) We’re especially loving that one in the middle. Isn’t it great?

I think it was you that had the theory that actually the band is getting together and Harry's solo launch is a ruse. My initial thought is that would be the most brilliant PR move in music history but realistically didn't think it was plausible. Now, I actually think you may be onto something. The thing that really thanking was at response when the interviewer asked him what he thought about Harry's album. He said "it is what it always was going to be".

You’re right it is me! Here’s the original post with thought process. I do still think it would be a brilliant PR move. I’ve been looking at Google Trends a bunch lately. Take a look at this data (and before I get the OT5 people, Google Trends ONLY lets me pick 5 things to compare). Live link for everyone that wants to see it bigger and interactive.

So, essentially what this says is that the biggest spike happened when Zayn left. Harry and Liam’s weekend activities barely register in the scheme of this data. I’ll be the first to admit that there are many ways to interpret data so bear in mind that this is just mine. It doesn’t take Twitter trends in to account. 

There are a bunch of things about the ad and the surrounding discussion that has me questioning what’s up. First, I LOVE Harry Styles. Like, dearly. I think he’s great. But Harry isn’t Beyonce. He’s not Adele. The general public doesn’t know his tattoos better than their own faces (like we do). The casual observer doesn’t even realize the ad is Harry Styles. I know there are many comparisons to Adele’s Hello ad but that was actually a 30 second clip of the song. And Adele had 2 multi-platinum albums before she went that direction. She also released it globally. 

So, we’ve got Harry releasing a cryptic ad to a UK only audience. It doesn’t say Harry Styles. It doesn’t have a clip of music that could get people excited. It feels very fandom oriented to me. It feels like something that is supposed to catch our attention (and it did, like whoa). And then you have the changes to his social media and yet another white line on Instagram. Both of those moves are not for bringing in new fans, they’re for alerting the fandom to change.

Aside from the ad itself, the discussion surrounding it is all kinds of shady. It’s all talking about speculation. There doesn’t seem to be any kind of statement from Harry’s team even to acknowledge what the ad is. You’ve got Nick Grimshaw taking the piss. Billboard says something big and “sources” say it’s a single. But it’s STILL quoting the same non-confirmation article about Columbia. Vogue talks about a “cryptic teaser.” Everyone is citing in circles. And I don’t believe the original source. We’ve never actually gotten an “official” confirmation of Columbia or anything.

So, I’m going to continue my hold out that this could be leading to a lot of things. I still think the BEST PR move would be for Harry to open the door to OT4. They’d rule every media outlet. It would be stunning. 

Ok but Chris’s handwriting is 👌 and so is Steph’s new haircut.

Congrats on 15 million! I guess somethings were meant to be. You were meant to have this many supporters. You were meant to be on YouTube. Just as much as I was meant to find you and be in this awesome community. Keep it up because your smile can make so many others smile brighter. @therealjacksepticeye
Sorry for the lack of color, lost my fucking markers in the depths of who the fuck knows where

tfw ur trying to write plot but ur brain only provides you with out-of-sequence snippets built on vague ideas and an endless number of potential outcomes that develop and branch out unnaturally over an unspecified timespan
