If you’re like us and love Harry Styles — or a good conspiracy theory — you’ve probably been tearing your hair out trying to work out what the heck this Eroda business is all about. Harries around the world have been composing Twitter threads and trying to work out wtf is going on and what is this entire thing going to lead to. But it seems like it’s all coming to a head this week …
The non-existent island has looked oh so inviting from the beautiful trailers and photos that have been plastered on social media, and visitors have even been sharing their experiences on Facebook via reviews. But it looks as though all is not what it seems as a new trailer has emerged.
Replacing the happy narrator on the original advertisement trailer of Eroda is a child who tells the peculiar backstory of the place.
In all the seas, in all the world, there has never been a land quite like the isle of Eroda. Shaped unmistakably like a frown, it is home to all but forgotten fishing village that has had perpetual cloud cover for as long as anyone can remember. An isle where some still believe that it’s bad luck to mention a pig in a fisherman’s pub, where seeing a minster in the morning, meant you should go home immediately.
WHAT IS IT ABOUT THIS FLIPPING PIG IN THE PUB?!
We’re then told the tale of a peculiar boy, cue Harry’s character …
But then … well something peculiar happened … or I mean … someone peculiar happened. The Boy was … peculiar … from the moment he entered the world. No one ever meant to be mean towards him, but in a town grown used to way things were, no one knew what to do with something … different. They did their very best to ignore it … hoping it would go away … and eventually so did The Boy. He had lost his smile and without it the world grew darker, the wind colder, and the ocean more violent. The Boy was not alone in his melancholy.
Imagine being repulsed by the smile of Harry Styles?
We then see Harry befriend a fish. Why? We don’t know why, but it’s Harry and him befriending a fish isn’t too out of the ordinary for him.
Check out the trailer below…
Of course, this whole new outlook on Eroda has got fans up in arms as they try to dig for the deeper meaning…
so eroda represents fame, you get warnings about it but it’s still portrayed as a good place. and once you step in you can’t leave?? adore you is going to be some deep shit

okay but the adore you trailer, harry is born into a grey town where everyone always frowns and he is too bright and too happy everyone ignores and avoids him and eventually his smile fades and he starts hating himself for being who he is, too bright and too different #eroda

So, it looks as though we’ll find out the entire meaning on Friday December 6, coincidentally when Harry’s next single ‘Adore You’ comes out. And we can hardly WAIT! Christmas who?
What do you think — do you have theories on Eroda? Is it as nice as the locals make it out to be? Will Harry and the fish be BFFS? Share your conspiracies in the comments below or by tweeting us @TheHoneyPOP!
