Liam Payne set the Instagram zeitgeist on fire with one simple push of the “share” button.

The One Direction member — alum? — posted his sexiest selfie yet, flaunting his abs-olutely perfect shirtless physique.

After we picked our jaws up off the floor and scanned the rest of his recent hot pics, we realized something: the dreamy crooner is taking a page out of former bandmate Zayn Malik’s Hot Dude on Instagram playbook.

Since Liam — and Zayn — are complete dimes, technically all of their photos are hot.

But there’s a very specific type of thirsty-for-likes-and-heart-eyes-emojis vibes some beautiful men have on IG — and both 1D boys have been giving it off lately. So the real question is, who’s the king of the pouty pic?  Let’s investigate:

Shirtless Selfie

You’ve already seen Liam’s, which is pure “look at my 78-pack.” Zayn, on the other hand, had the decency to add his face to his photo. At least the R&B singer can say he was taking a selfie and his A+ pecs just got in the way.

The Netflix & Chill Selfie

Can't sleep! Ever! Ever ever! Never

Liam, 22, uses the old “Can't sleep! Ever!” excuse to explain away his bedroom eyes snapshot. Zayn ditches the silly caption for an up-close look at his tongue.

Thirst winner: Zayn

Zayn looks so innocent here, you kind of forget he can seduce 99 percent of the population with the blink of an eye. Liam, on the other hand, is really selling the Private Jet Lifestyle here.

Bedhead Selfie

OK, they’re honestly making the exact same face, with nearly the exact same hand placement. Who taught them this?

Liam wants you to know he’s most likely only rocking a towel in this photo. Zayn is keeping the question up in the air — does his head hurt or is he styling his always-changing hair? We’ll never truly know.

Thirst winner: Liam

Zayn may have covered Interview’s #Me issue this September, but Liam is the true sexy selfie king of One Direction. Glad we cleared that up!
