One Direction will soon be adding TV pranksters to their resume – they are eyeing their own small screen show.

The five singers – Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson – are planning a similar program to hit British comedy series Beadle’s About, in which unsuspecting members of the public were duped and filmed by hidden cameras.

The What Makes You Beautiful hitmakers were also inspired by the U.K.’s Impractical Jokers show, but they have more high-profile targets in their sights – they want to prank fellow stars.

Tomlinson tells Britain’s Daily Star, “We want to do a TV prank show like that new one on BBC Three. It was funny and full of practical jokes. We would like to do a show like that and prank celebrities.”
