A video of One Direction covering Oasis' 'Wonderwall' has surfaced online – scroll down to watch it.

The footage is thought to have been filmed on the set of the band's 'What Makes You Beautiful' video and features the five-piece sitting on a beach. Niall Horan takes on the role of Noel Gallagher, strumming a guitar while sat on a cool box.

However, Oasis fans have been less than impressed with the cover. One Twitter user Bring It On Dan wrote: "Can't believe I've just watched One Direction cover Wonderwall and NOT bled to death from the ears."

Another user Adam Maughan wrote: "One Direction's cover of Wonderwall has just given me morning sickness. Awful guitar playing. Stick to your pop shit. ?#talentless", while April wrote: "ONE DIRECTION AND THEIR COVER OF WONDERWALL OMG STOP I'M CRYING BLOOD".

The boyband performed as part of the Olympic closing ceremony on Sunday (August 12) alongside Liam Gallagher's band Beady Eye, who did their own rendition of 'Wonderwall'.

At an intimate acoustic show in London last for XFM in aid of War Child last night (August 15), Noel Gallagher also played the track, mocking his younger brother by dedicating it to "Stratford's finest Oasis tribute band".

One Direction are currently working on their as yet untitled second album.
