SNL One Direction Paul Rudd opening monologue video Afternoon Delight
One Direction graced the SNL stage early in the show--during the monologue with host Paul Rudd!

But, they weren't just there to look pretty (well, of course, they did that too), but instead joined the Anchorman 2 cast in a sing-along of "Afternoon Delight."

Things were tense at the onset, as Paul hoped to not be overshadowed by the musical guest--but with 1D in the house, things weren't going to go Paul's way.

He brought out the big guns to sing on stage--his man band: Will Ferrell, Steve Carell and David Koechner...and looked to Harry, Niall, Zayn, Louis and Liam to join forces for a little peaceful musical number.

The men took on "Afternoon Delight"--and Nine Direction was born!

What did you think of One Direction joining in on the hilarious monologue?

Later, Paul channeled his inner Directioner, playing Dan Charles, One Direction's #1 fan!

Check out the hilarious monologue at 8:10 in the video below:
