On March 25, 2012 (the day after Dallas), One Direction did a huge signing at the Mall of America in Minneapolis. It’s mostly remembered for Louis’ unrelenting sass. I’ll talk more about that in my March timeline which is almost complete (*gasp*).
I found this video, however, and wanted to share because there’s a lot of good stuff going on.
This is them walking into the signing. They pass a Haagen-Dazs store and stop to admire the ice cream flavors (Louis later got a shake he drank during the signing).
Probably talking about how they used to go to Milkshake City all the time and share shakes there.
Preston tries to move them along.
Louis reaches out for Harry and points at something in the case.
They slot together like puzzle pieces to talk about ice cream, as you do. Note the person in the top left corner. I think that’s a fan.
Please, you two.
The person trying to talk to them doesn’t give up. Louis reaches out for Harry. Jesus, take the wheel.
The person reaches out for Harry and Louis appears to push Harry along with his hand.
Then, he reaches for Harry’s bicep as he turns to the police officer, perhaps to get his attention? I don’t know. Zayn is next to Harry as the person reaches for Harry.
Why does he always guide him by the damn bicep where Harry has the ship. :(
The person turns to Louis who is still half pushing Harry along. Louis then gives this person the most awkward hug I’ve ever seen in my life (yet still manages better body language than he’s ever had with Eleanor, a singular feat).
I think, based on Louis’ body language, this was a rogue fan who made it past security and appeared to want to talk to Harry specifically. They tried to get Harry’s attention, reached out to Harry. Harry didn’t really turn around. Stayed focused on Zayn. But it’s probably the bestt/worst thing ever, because Louis’ instinct seemed to be to push Harry along and smooth the situation over himself so Harry didn’t have to deal with it.

Here you go nonny. It’s from THIS picture, just zoomed, and sharpened more than it probably should be.
