Sunday Night Pick-Me-Up: Downton Cast Covers Boy Band

Is the impending conclusion of Downton Abbey's third season putting you in a funk? Well, you're not alone. We're not sure how we'll make it through the desolate remainder of the year, either (though this might help). However, the cast — or rather, some video-savvy fan with a lot of time on his or her hands — must have heard our collective sighs because in true Crawley-Grantham fashion, the upstairs-downstairs crew sweep all their class quibbles aside for a special rendition of One Direction's "What Makes You Beautiful." In the spirit of Lord Grantham, it didn't just have us overwhelmed, but "flabbergasted."

The Brit-overload mashup includes Mary's right-on looks, the Dowager Countess' stellar bell ringing, and some saucy hands-on-hip action from Anna. Even past-season characters like Lavinia and Sir Richard Carlisle chime in! So, we're thinking the cast may have a second career as a traveling band when the season eventually concludes. You'd totally jump on that reality show, right?
