One Direction get a year of free Addison Lee cabs after shout-out in Midnight Memories lyrics
1D boasted about packing friends into one of the firm's cabs
Your attempts at pimping out Uber promo codes might have earned you a couple of free taxi journeys, but One Direction will travel free for a year after name-dropping the company in their latest single "Midnight Memories".
"Tell me that I'm wrong but I do what I please / Way too many people in the Addison Lee," band member Louis Tomlinson sings during the track, presumably a reference to late nights out at London clubs.
Tomlinson followed this up with a tweet about the line, writing: "Surely we get some kind of @AddisonLeeCabs gold card for the name drop haha !!??"
It seems Addison Lee picked up on the request, with The Sun reporting that they have given the boy band complimentary cabs for the whole year, which will help with their no doubt minuscule bank balances.
"Midnight Memories" is the third single to be taken from 1D's new album of the same name, following "Best Song Ever" and "Story Of My Life".
