Lena Dunham has officially raised the bar on accepting compliments.

Earlier this week, One Direction’s Niall Horan tweeted that HBO’s Girls is “absolutely hilarious,” adding, “love your work.” (The tweet followed an episode that featured a return from Charlie, who is now a heroin addict. Not exactly a “hilarious” half hour, in the traditional sense.)

Dunham responded to the singer’s praise Wednesday night on Instagram not with a simple “thank you,” but with a screenshot of his tweet and a brand-new, Girls-appropriate verse for “Perfect,” 1D’s second single from Made in the A.M.:

“But if you like having panic attacks up in hotel rooms / And if you like a lot of complex fear stuff around men and sex / If you like to do the things you’re too ashamed to admit to anyone but your therapist  / Then baby, I’m perfect.”
