After teasing the world last week with a snippet, Adele release the visuals for her hit single “Hello“. Shot in a vintage black and white, while using a flip phone lends to the nostalgic feel of the video and the meaning of the song. On the first day of its release, “Hello” beat Taylor Swift‘s record for most-viewed video in 24 hours.
Another reason we’re loving this is Tristan Wilds plays Adele’s ex. It seemed to be an unlikely choice, but the video director Xavier Dolan is a big fan of Tristan’s. He describes working with Adele as “amazing, she made it easy for everyone to feel at home, like we were all friends.”
