Can you feel that? It's One Direction infection continuing to spread worldwide. The boy band's "Up All Night" concert DVD (released on May 29) has already reached No. 1 in 25 countries.

So if you're residing in the U.S., the U.K., Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Denmark, France, Finland, Hong Kong, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, the Philippines, Poland, Portugal, Singapore, Spain, Sweden or Turkey, then you probably know someone obsessed with the adorable fivesome — like, say, Malia Obama.

As One Direction attempt global domination, they're breaking records in the States. "Up All Night" is currently at No. 1 on the Billboard DVD chart and has outsold current Billboard chart-topper John Mayer this week — by over 10,000 copies! Could its success have something to do with the group's currently sold-out 27-show North American tour? We mean, there must be an awful lot of fans hungry for a One Direction live concert experience, and when tickets are scarce, a DVD is the next best option.

Why is this group called a boy band when none of them play any instruments? They are a vocal group.

how can you call 5 young males a band when none of them play instruments? They are a vocal group. I never hear girl vocal groups called girl bands.
