One Direction may be taking a “break,” but it seems TV news anchors will never stop mindlessly reading the most obvious pun from their teleprompter while covering national news stories.

Jimmy Kimmel had fun with the boy band and the media on Monday by showing viewers another one of his signature supercuts, this time capturing the plethora of journalists who read some version of this: “One Direction may be headed in different directions.”

See what they did there?

“How cute,” Kimmel quipped after airing the montage, which followed the ABC late-night host reading a collection of distraught tweets from 1D fans.
