In 'Steal My Girl’ which was shot in Los Angeles last Friday (October 10th), DeVito stars opposite Harry and the gang as the music video's director.

But the boys might have gotten a little more than they bargained for from the Matilda actor after he introduced the band to ‘troll foot’. Yes DeVito’s foot has been popping up in his social media pictures daily for the past few years and has now even made it into a picture with the One Direction boys.

Speaking to Forbes last year DeVito described his social media joke saying, “When I see a picture that I really want Troll Foot to be in, I put him out.” Adding that the photobombing foot now has “a lot of fans.”
