Harry Styles Has Single-Handedly Turned Sara Lee’s Instagram Into A Thirst Trap

Now that's a watermelon sugar high.

Harry Styles really does have a way with words and it’s gotten to a point that he’s now influencing the social media accounts of dessert brands.

ICYMI, Styles was the special guest on the most recent episode of Saturday Night Live and appeared in a skit where he played Sara Lee’s social media manager gone rogue.

During the skit, Styles’ bosses at Sara Lee ask him why the brand’s official Instagram had commented “wreck me daddy” on a snap of Nick Jonas. Styles, in the role of the thirsty social media manager, said he’d forgotten to switch accounts from professional to personal before posting the comment.

Later, his bosses asked him to explain why Sara Lee had left a comment featuring a series of emojis including the eggplant, water droplets, train and ghost. Styles responds, “rail me to death, obviously.

It escalates even further when Styles is called out for captioning an Insta pic of Sara Lee bread, “A little moody after being used. Why do guys freak out when I ask them to spit in mouth? Need a real king that can handle. It’s 8am and I have to go to hell job at sara lee. A little in my head after another threesome.”

Wow – I need a drink.

Wherever Harry Styles goes, his loyal fans and followers will go. So, it comes as no surprise that following Styles’ hilarious SNL skit, Sara Lee’s IRL Instagram account was inundated by thirsty comments like “wreck me daddy,” “rail me to death daddy” and “need a king that can handle.”

The flood of sexy comments was so intense Sara Lee was forced to temporarily disable ones featuring the skit. “We didn’t know about or participate in the creation of the skit so as you can imagine, waking up to all those comments threw us for a bit of a loop,” a Sara Lee spokesperson told The Advocate.

“We didn’t delete any comments but did temporarily hide them until we could read through and understand what happened,” the company said in a statement. “While the explicit jokes in the skit do not align with Sara Lee Bread’s brand, we know SNL pushes the envelope for laughs and are taking it all in stride.”

Sounds to me like Sara Lee knew exactly what they were doing here. If this isn’t the most genius brand partnership since the Fiji Water Girl at the Golden Globes, I don’t know what is.

Now that’s a watermelon sugar high.

Can We Please Get The Queen's Hot Take On Harry Styles' Jumper?

We're feeling sheepish about this.

In the last few years, Harry Styles has bid farewell to his cute, clean, cookie cutter boy band aesthetic. Nowadays, the singer is far more inclined to rock flares and heels than his former white tee and skinny jean ensemble. He’s even taking his style cues from the late great Princess Diana.

Styles was photographed in NYC this week wearing a striped shirt and slacks, patent pink boots and a sweater vest covered in fuzzy sheep. Harry Styles jumper is iconic for a variety of reasons – firstly, JUST LOOK AT IT, and secondly, it’s a lovely nod to red sheep sweater Lady Di wore in the ‘80s.

Princess Diana was arguably the greatest style icon of the 20th century. She was chic, classy and over the course of her time in the limelight, she boldly broke royal dress codes on many of her fashion choices.

Considering this – and his penchant for gender fluid fashion –  it’s no surprise Harry Styles jumper is taking a leaf out of Lady Di’s book (or wardrobe, to be specific).

It does, however, beg one big question: what would the Queen think of Styles jumper?

According to Good Housekeeping, Princess Diana had broken royal protocol a few times by the 1990s which put a strain on her relationship with The Queen, but it was Andrew Morton’s 1992 book Diana: Her True Story that really ruffled feathers.

After Diana was tragically killed in a car accident in 1997, her participation in the book became public knowledge and The Queen was allegedly “stunned,” that her daughter-in-law would air her “dirty linen in such a way.”

On closer inspection of Princess Diana’s sweater, amongst the white sheep there is one black sheep – if that’s not a reference to her feelings at the time, I don’t know what is. Shoutout to Harry Styles for celebrating Princess Diana like the beautiful, graceful trailblazer she was. 

This Tale Of Harry Styles' Vegan Stalker Is Absolutely Bonkers

"I could feel him watching me."

Harry Styles is back in the spotlight after dropping his new track, and equally-as-fire video, for ‘Lights Up’ – but he’s also making headlines for this straight-up bonkers tale about being stalked.

Pablo Tarazaga-Orero has been found guilty of stalking Harry Styles after he spent months camping outside the signer’s London home. According the The Guardian, Styles told the Hendon Magistrates’ Court he first encountered Tarazaga-Orero in March and said he was “sad to see someone so young sleeping rough.”

Styles offered the man money for a hotel or food but “he told me that he couldn’t accept the money for religious reasons…he said he was vegan.”

The next morning, Styles reportedly gave the man vegan food. “I passed him the bag of food through the car window at which point he asked me if I wanted to go to a restaurant to eat with him. I told him I was on my way to work. I found it a little odd,” Styles said. 

“His facial expression made me feel a little uneasy; it was a kind of smirk,” Styles told the court. “I realised there was something not quite normal.”

Apparently, Tarazaga-Orero began showing up at Harry Styles’ local pub “up to four times a week,” and would turn up “anywhere between a minute and two minutes after I arrived.” This is, obviously, when alarm bells started going off for Styles.

“I saw him incredibly often. Almost every day. I could feel him watching me. It made me feel incredibly uncomfortable,” he said.

After Tarazago-Orero began posting notes in Styles’ letterbox and approaching him in public asking for money, the singer was forced to amp up his security measures.

Things from Tarazaga-Orero’s perspective happened very differently. He told the court that Styles was “trying to buy me with money” and wanted them to be together in Ireland. He also claimed that Styles gave him money for a hotel so they could go there and “have some fun.” 

District Judge Nigel Dean said that Harry Styles “felt sorry for a young man he saw to be living without a home in winter,” and added that he was just “trying to help another for whom he felt sorry.” 

Sadly, it sounds like Styles’ motto to ‘treat people with kindness’ backfired this time around.
