Who would have thought One Direction would end up following in the footsteps of stars like Michael Jackson, Britney Spears and the Spice Girls?

But Harry Styles, Zayn Malik,, Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson and Liam Payne have only gone an landed themselves a Pepsi commercial.

Starring alongside NFL star Drew Brees, the guys battle over a can of Pepsi and argue over who's more famous.

Eventually he ends up joining the boy band and ends up singing the chorus of Live While We're Young.

The boys signed a deal worth a reported £11million to become the global faces of Pepsi, but that's not even the best news they've had this week.

One Direction have made history in the USA again today by achieving the fastest selling single by a UK artist with Live While We're Young.

The track has actually registered as the biggest opening week sales for a single by a non-US artist ever after selling 341,000 copies in one week.

Niall said, 'We're so happy with the success of the single in the USA and can't wait for everyone to hear our new album. Thank you to all the fans once again!'
