One Direction are set to join Big Bird for a special cameo in an upcoming episode of Sesame Street. Harry, Liam, Louis, Niall and Zayn are following in the same footsteps as fellow British pop star Ed Sheeran, who is set to appear in the kid's show in 2014.
The 1D hunks, who have had an incredibly busy year performing over 130 gigs around the world and releasing their third studio album 'Midnight Memories' in November, appeared happy as they huddled up together smiling for the promo.
“Some special friends are coming to Sesame Street – stay tuned!” Big Bird teased, as the British heartthrobs waved behind him.

The band posed with the big yellow bird in a snap, with Sesame Street tweeting: “Guess who’s 1D’s “biggest” fan? (And thanks for visiting Sesame Street, @onedirection!)”.
The singers are set to help the residents on the street with their literacy skills and important life lessons.
Meanwhile, the 'Kiss You' stars will head off on another huge tour in May 2014, when the 'Where We Are' gigs start in South America on April 25. The lads will then perform eleven shows in Ireland and the UK, including concerts at Wembley Stadium and Edinburgh's Murayfield Stadium.
