It seems the only thing that the One Direction boys can’t do is dance.

The British-Irish boy band might lend their voices to a YouTube-based video series titled “The Adventurous Adventures of One Direction.” Since the fan-fiction animation series debuted two weeks ago, it’s racked up nearly six million views and grabbed the attention of One Direction.

According to London radio station Capital FM, the guys have reportedly contacted the creator to voice an upcoming edition of the series. Also, one of the band’s members told the UK’s The Sun newspaper that they “loved” the cartoon.

“There might be some more cartoons with our voices in the future,” said member Liam Payne to the tabloid. The band is currently on their debut United States tour and in talks to star in a 3D movie.

The 20-minute cartoon, which is wonderfully drawn and very clever, follows the guys as they try destroy the evil Lord Faptaguise. The premise is similar to Charlie’s Angels as the band is dispatched to fight crimes. But, appropriately, their version of Charlie is X Factor judge Simon Cowell, who helped them get their big break.

Watch the cartoon below and imagine how wonderful it would be with the band’s voices in it.
