Justin Bieber and Niall Horan showed us just how chummy and tight they are as pals while they were hanging out on Sunday night, with Bieber trying to get Horan to smile for the camera in one of his Instagram stories.

After, Bieber playfully posted a selfie on Instagram that seems to parody Horan’s album cover of his first ever solo album Flicker, featuring a zoomed-in photo of his face, another post of the original followed as a comparison.
“Arsehole,” Horan commented on the post, along with nine crying emojis.
Bieber’s light-hearted attempt at poking fun of his pal on social media is also a nice touch of support, which was well-received by fans given that the post has earned over 2 million likes.
Back in May, Horan shared with Billboard the advice that Justin gave him on his solo album.
“Bieber told me that you never really know when you’re finished [with an album],” he said. “He thought he was done [with Purpose] and then got ‘Love Yourself’ at the last minute. I thought my album was finished, and then I went on a bit of a run ’cause I was writin’ crap stuff up until then.”
Does Bieber’s take do the original justice? You be the judge.
For fans of Niall Horan, Flicker is set to be released on October 20.
