If you’ve been on Twitter today you’ve probably seen a few tweets about The Oooly Toooly. What is it? Why is everyone talking about it? Because Harry Styles and One Direction, that’s why.
You see, Harry Styles sent out a tweet earlier this morning with three little words. “The Oooly Toooly.”
The Oooly Toooly.
— Harry Styles (@Harry_Styles) September 5, 2014
He didn’t say what it meant. He didn’t say what it was. He just wrote “The Oooly Tooly.” And now, close to 8 hours after that little tweet, the term is still trending on Twitter.

Harry Styles’ tweet has been retweeted more than 80,000 times and has been favorited more than 100,000 times. AND NO ONE KNOWS WHY!
Sure, it could be a hint at a new album or a new song. It could be some inside joke between Harry Styles and the rest of One Direction. Or it could just be gibberish.
Regardless of what “The Oooly Tooly” means, one thing is for certain: Harry Styles and One Direction have a scary amount of influence on their fans.
