In a press conference yesterday, Liam Payne revealed news that totally shocked us — Zayn Malik was almost kicked out of One Direction!

According to the singer, Zayn was always late for rehearsals because he overslept. "The first week we got together it was all a bit strange trying to get people together for rehearsals," Liam said. "Still to this day it's a struggle to get Zayn out of bed."

Morgan Spurlock, the director of the boys' film This Is Us chimed in and said, "Remember he didn't show up and you were going to fire him?"

Since waking up late is so much better than sleeping on the job, we decided to show the guys how much worse it could have been by creating our own 1D pics with Photoshop. Click through to see LOL-worthy photos of Zayn taking a snooze during the worst moments ever.

Which photos make you laugh the hardest?
