After releasing their highly anticipated new single "Want You Back" last week, Five Seconds Of Summer stopped by BBC one to chat about tattoos, Liam Payne, and which Shrek character they would be, naturally.

“I would be the dragon,” Callum Hood said. “Or Lord Farquad,” Michael Clifford added. A fan then asked the burning question on everybody’s mind: “if you were a chair, who would you let sit on you?”

“Uh….Antonio Banderas?” vocalist Luke Hemmings said. Ashton Irwin decided to go with Ricky Martin, and Clifford instead that he would not want Hood to sit on him, while Hood picked Zedd.

Irwin then mentioned that Zedd and Liam Payne keep being brought up in their interviews. “Liam paid for their first tattoos and they won’t stop talking about it.” Hood explained that they never got to thank him properly, which is why they keep bringing it up.

“We get to the tattoo shop, we get tattoos done, and he gets one done, and he had already left by the time we came out, and he paid for it,” Clifford recalled. Hood added, “Thank lord, since we had no money.” Check out the whole story below.
