Bored Fathers Who Have to Attend One Direction Concerts With their Daughters

If there is one thing CNN’s John Berman knows, it's hip. Right now, he says there is nothing hipper than the boy band "One Direction."

Berman says their song, "What Makes You Beautiful," is deeply and profoundly touching to anyone who hears it.

Well, maybe not everyone. He says he may be exaggerating a tiny bit because photos posted on Reddit, apparently of fathers who have been taken to a One Direction concert, beg to differ.

“Let's just say they are exerting themselves in ways they probably never imagined,” Berman empathizes. "The pain looks excruciating.”

So Berman has a special award to give these fathers, the "What Makes You Beautiful Award."

And he means it, seriously and without irony.

“It takes a special sort of man to take his kid to see a boy band," Berman says. "And your children, they will remember it forever. Or at least for most of the ride home.”
