My thoughts on Adele’s new music video

It’s been four years since Adele released Someone Like You. In those four years that poor song has been butchered by Idols contestants across the globe, and overplayed in every Ackermans in the country.

So when I found out that Adele had released a new song, I used my last bit of data to watch the music video.


The song is obviously beautiful. Listen to it here.

“It’s not about anything specific. I have a little curiosity about my past now that I’m a grown up. We’re not kids anymore and stuff like that. It’s kind of a hello to all my old friends, all the relationships I’ve had, all my old teachers, my little me when I was 7 or 8, and also a bit of a hello to all my fans because I’ve been gone for so long.”

The song’s meaning seems to be open to interpretation, but I’m not here to discuss that. I’m here to talk about the music video. I had many thoughts while watching it, so many in fact, that I decided to pen them for you.

Here you go.

Can we just make flip phones a thing again now? Seriously. Nothing will ever beat hanging up an annoying call with a sassy flip of your hand.

Wait, is this the same house Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger recorded in? That’s 900 times worse than dealing with ghosts.

Huh? What? No, I’m not building a shrine for Adele’s cateyes. These tools are for something else…

Wait, did she just pour the water first and then put the tea bag in? So Tom Delonge was right, aliens do exist.

Which one of my designer friends can I ask to Photoshop Adele’s hair on my head? Hmm…
