The Irish singer parked his Range Rover outside the complex while the group worked on music for their next album, but he later emerged to find Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson had covered the car in white paper, as well as bizarre objects including trash cans, garden tools and a giant teddy bear.

Payne shared snaps of the prank online and added in a message on Twitter.com, "Great day today nice tunes nice vibes nice destroying Niall's ride."

Horan later replied to the pair, "Ahhahahah d**kheads ! I think they call it modern art..."
