Bonus points to Liam for making us do a double take and getting a little frisky with fans, who would love to see even more of the 1D hottie. While cheeky is usually Harry Styles territory, we couldn't help but giggle over Liam's joke. Well played.
The caption? "Damn that was my last pair!" The reaction? Of course, fans wanted to see more, as the hashtag #UncensorItLiam started trending on Twitter, as Directioners demanded to find out what was behind the blurred out area.
The demand, sadly, didn't work, as Liam later Instagrammed another pic showing him covered with his swim trunks, with the caption: "Oh I found them never mind aha."
