24 Times Fans Have Expressed their Love for Louis

These past five years with One Direction have been a rocky rollercoaster ride leading up to a well-deserved break on their behalf. Fortunately for the fans, the 18-month break doesn’t start until the new year and fans were given a chance to celebrate Louis Tomlinson’s 24th birthday with him before the hiatus begins.

Louis has never failed to appreciate and acknowledge Directioners for all their hard work. “This is a testament to how incredible our fans are,” Louis gushes upon receiving the Artist of the Year award at the AMAs in November, “You’ve been great to us this year, so thank you, thank you, thank you.”

The love and thanks Louis directs towards fans is mutual and is always returned. Fans have done so much in order to express their gratitude and love towards Louis, such as gifting him with presents or tweeting sweet things just to make him smile. In honor of his 24th birthday; here are 24 times the fans have given back both physically, and emotionally, to Louis Tomlinson.

24. That One Ah-dee-das Jumper

The time he pronounced “Adidas” was correct in several countries, but differentiated from the norm in America – where the interview took place. Let’s just say he made many fans adore him just by his dialect with that one word. Imagine being the lucky fan that gifted him the jacket!

23. The Other Adidas Jacket

A fan threw it on stage in Milwaukee, and Louis did not hesitate to put it on. He even performed with it!

22. More Adidas Gear!

This shirt was bought by @lookingoodlads on twitter. Her motive was to gift it to Louis at OTRA Gillette. Although it was not able to reach him, the intention was there all the same. Anything Adidas will look great on Louis.

18. GIF Photosets on Tumblr

There is no better way to capture Louis’ best moments than in GIFs. This specific moment was during the infamous Carpool Karaoke with One Direction on James Corden. You can practically hear his accent! Tommosloueh‘s edit on tumblr captured the hilarious moment of Louis retelling the tale of a 45-year-old woman gifting him milk. What a laugh.

Sorry for bringing it up, but it was a movement by the fans worth acknowledging. Remember when Louis was deemed the “ugly” member (hah!) of One Direction in a news piece? Directioners didn’t stand for it, and #RespectLouis was trending worldwide on Twitter for over 6 hours! Absolutely amazing. Best fans in the world!

11. The Twitter Accounts Dedicated to how Beautiful Louis Is

This was an irreplaceable moment. A fan throws her phone on stage – with the intention of it being a gift? Or was this her motive all along? – and Louis has a thrilling conversation with her mother about tea.

9. The Water Guns thrown on stage

Louis doesn’t have to bring his own waterguns to the show because the fans provide it for him! He has great fun spraying his bandmates with them.

8. The Silly String

The fun doesn’t end there! Not only does he attacks Liam with the silly string, but he usually engages fans in the war as well.

7. The Blue Bandanas that Fans Wore to Concerts

The Bandana Project was started back during the Where We Are tour, and it was quite a success! Several fans wore Louis’ color – blue – to show their devotion to him.

6. The Sweaters with his Tattoos

If you want one of your own, you can purchase them on Etsy. The time spent making these and the money spent buying them are things spent with Louis in mind.

5. Other Apparel Dedicated to Louis

Louis was able to see this windbreaker design when a fan waved it around during Ellen. Louis seemed to have appreciated it very much!

4. The Thank You Videos

Challenge: attempt watching these videos and not crying.

Fans make these videos to express their feelings and thanks for him. These emotions are so large that they could touch the ends of the Earth.

3. How about the fact that Louis has several of his own “Funny Moments” videos on Youtube?

Second challenge: watch this and try not laughing.

2. The 1DFansGive’s Annual Charity Drive in honor of Louis’s Birthday

The 1DFansGive charity drive is an amazing movement started by a few fans. It’s been a couple years and the difference they are making is only getting stronger. They have already raised over $26,000 in honor of his 24th birthday this year.

Make sure to check it out and donate. It’s not too late to help the fans, Louis, and Eden!

And last but definitely not least:

1. Project No Control

#ProjectNoControl made so many headlines and caused such a commotion that it will go down in music history. The fans are absolutely incredible! Have you ever seen such a smile on Louis’ face?

That was the exact purpose of #ProjectNoControl – actually, it’s the purpose of everything the fans ever do for him – to see Louis smile.

Louis Tomlinson has a heart of gold that empowers his fans and brings out the best in them. The love between Louis and his fans is connected through a special relationship that outsiders cannot understand. At the end of the day, Louis does his best to make the fans happy, but all the fans want is to see him happy. What a win-win situation! Louis will never stop giving back to the fans the same way the fans will never stop giving back to him.

Happy Birthday, Louis! May your 24th year of life be your best.
