A promise is a promise, and when James McVey, “The Vamps” guitarist and vocalist, told his fans he would get naked if their album would get to Number 1 – he meant it. So he did. So here it is.

“The Vamps” is made up of four guys from the UK who first gained popularity on YouTube, then saw international success – James McVey, Brad Simpson, Connor Ball and Tristan Evans.

Their third studio album, “Night & Day”, was released last week (the first part of it, anyway – the album was divided into two parts.)

Following the album’s release, James apparently promised his fans to post a nude photo if it would get to Number 1.

Today, the album knocked Ed Sheeran off the top spot of the Official Albums Chart in the UK – and 23-year-old James is keeping his promise, saying “Can’t believe you made me promise I’d do this.”

While the Tweet seems to have been deleted eventually – some fans were quick to make a copy –

Of course, looking like that takes some work. So here’s what THAT looks like:
