With Downton Abbey fans still coming to terms with life without the hit UK drama — season three ended Sunday, Feb. 17 — this mashup of two British pop culture sensations may come as some comfort. YouTube user Richard Sandling rearranged the cast’s dialogue so that it looks like they are singing One Direction’s “What Makes You Beautiful.” It’s cheesy, but it’s a pretty clean edit to listen to.

Don’t miss the creative riff on the “Na na na na na” bridge, beginning at the 2:06 mark.
