Harry Styles is a man of many talents. He can sing, act, play guitar, host “The Late Late Show," is a brilliant bingo caller, and apparently, he can catch a flying gummy bear in his mouth when it’s launched at him during one of his concerts. You can watch his latest amazing feat in the fan-captured video below, which was filmed at Styles’ live solo show at London’s O2 Arena last night (April 12).
The clip begins as Styles tells his London audience he won’t be able to sing if he eats all the gummy bears they are pitching at him. He strikes a bargain with them by saying, “you can do one in my mouth and then the game's over," then adds with a grin "and only throw Haribo. Okay?"
A fan throws the candy, Styles bobs slightly and catches it right in his mouth. The former One Direction member raises his arms in victory as fans scream with excitement He drops to his knees while he chews the gummy and then flashes his signature, dimpled smile. Then he stands up, walks a few paces and jokes with his captive audience saying, “I cannot tell you how relieved I am that went in. I’m never gonna risk that again!”
The “Sign of the Times” singer is known for his charismatic interactions with fans during his live shows. He’s also no stranger to fans tossing all sorts of things up on stage, including Kiwi fruit, in honor of his song “Kiwi,” from his chart-topping self-titled debut solo album. In the “Kiwi” video (which is embedded above), he engages in a food fight with adorable puppies and kids. At last night's London show, however, he refrains from throwing any gummies back to his fans. He playfully catches one to eat instead. The multiple BRIT Award winner moves on from the moment by giving some birthday shout-outs to the adoring crowd.
Harry Styles’ London O2 Arena show is part of his worldwide stadium tour to support his solo album. At his kickoff show in Switzerland, he performed two new songs which are not on the album. One was called “Medicine” and the other was called “Anna.” The “Two Ghosts” singer will be playing stadium shows this summer in the U.S., including a stop at Infinite Energy Arena in Duluth, Ga. on June 11 (click here to purchase tickets from AXS).
