Pop sensations One Direction are buying their own customised version of the Mystery Machine from the 'Scooby Doo' cartoons and hope to take it on tour in the US.
One Direction are buying a customised version of Scooby Doo's Mystery Machine.
The 'Little Things' hitmakers - Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Zayn Malik, Niall Horan and Louis Tomlinson - are investing almost £70,000 on a vehicle styled like the van from the popular cartoon series and they hope to use it as a new tour bus.
An insider told the Daily Mirror newspaper: ''The boys love cartoons and 'Scooby Doo' is a cult classic.
''They wanted to do something special ahead of their US tour and decided to get a bespoke tour bus created. The guys are desperate to have it shipped over to America so it can join them on tour.
''Scooby's obviously a US import and massive out there so they know the van will be a hit with both the fans - and their mums.''
The van - which features a plasma screen TV behind the driver's head and entertainment consoles for each member - may be kept as a British exclusive if management don't feel transporting it to the US is viable.
The source added: ''If management decides it's too expensive and impractical then they'll simply keep it as a fun vehicle for travelling from city to city over here [in the UK].''
As well as the band's 1D logo being added to the van, it will also featured entertainment consoles for each band member and a plasma screen on the wall behind the driver.
