Watch 5sos’ calum hood help his pint-sized cousin shred on bass

Family ties, guys. 5 Seconds of Summer played in Auckland on Wednesday night and, of course, they slayed. But one segment of the New Zealand show was especially special for bassist Calum Hood, since it gave him a chance to bring his 9-year-old cousin up to shred on bass.

It was a great night all around and fans were loving the cameo from the little guy.

The guys had a blast too.

Maybe 1D can take a tip from 5SOS and start looking around at family gatherings for, ahem, younger proteges? Just sayin’.
