July 21: 5SOS Get Down in the Dirty Laundry

We know and love 5 Seconds of Summer's goofy side and it was on full display for a livestream with MTV earlier today. In a segment that surely made fans squeal, the guys riled through a pile of dirty laundry don a slew of ridiculous undergarments. While Michael looks content in his pink boxers/thong combo, we can't say the same about Calum, with Luke and Ashton looking equally perplexed, as to how to layer a lacy G-String over his highlighter-yellow shorts.
