Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock for the last month or so, you’ve probably heard Adele’s tear-jerking #1 single “Hello” at least once… either on your own playlist, or maybe from the car next to yours at the stoplight, while the driver tries not to ugly-cry in front of complete strangers. As with anything so insanely popular, it’s spawned a ton of parodies — but so far only one has caught the attention of genre fans (or movie buffs in general, for that matter).
This mash-up, meticulously stitched together by editing guru Matthijs Vlot, mines dozens of famous (and infamous) movie titles to capture bits of dialog from many familiar characters, who had no idea they would become the world’s largest celebrity Adele cover band.
Genre icons making cameos in this Hello-palooza include Han, Luke & Threepio, Superman, Harry Potter, SHAUN OF THE DEAD’s Simon Pegg, GREMLINS’ Zach Galligan, Heather Langenkamp from A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET, Roy Scheider in JAWS… hell, even E.T. drops a lyric.
Yeah, so it’s goofy as shit. But hey… it’s been a rough week. Laugh a little.
