Hello? Adele single re-imagined as hauntingly beautiful lesbian romance
A filmmaker has re-imagined Adele’s smash hit Hello – and made it even sadder.
You probably don’t need us to explain that the singer’s comeback single has caught on worldwide – reaching number 1 in over 100 countries and picking up nearly 500 million YouTube views to date.
However, one brave fan decided to cast out the original Xavier Dolan-directed video, flip-phones and all, in favour of re-imagining the song.
Cleber Fleith decided to take on the task, re-purposing footage originally shot by filmmaker Sal Bardo for a separate music video.
The video bills itself as the “LGBTQ version” – staying true to the original lyrical meaning but through the context of a lesbian romance.
The clip, spotted by HuffPo, sees an elderly woman (Maxemillian Corkum) decide to leave her husband while he is sleeping, packing her bag quietly.
She continues to leave the house, and walking through the snow – to re-unite with her female former lover.
Ellen DeGeneres recently shed another light on the singer’s iconic Hello video.
Ellen’s skit took a look at the other side of the call – with Adele calling up the host instead of an ex-boyfriend.
