WATCH: Lionel Richie Responds To Adele's New Song In Brilliant Fashion

He's an absolute gentleman. 

We had a bit of a giggle making Lionel Ritchie-inspired videos last week when Adele’s new single Hello landed.


Howiya ?? #AdeleRichie ... You're guaranteed to watch this #25 times it is that good.

Now though, it looks like the man himself is well able to take the joke too as he posted a pretty brilliant response on his Instagram page this week.

The singer, who is also famous for his track Hello, posted the clip online and it’s become quite a big hit with fans of both singers.

There’s a little bit of heartbreak involved in the clip though as Adele ruthlessly hangs up her flip phone on him in response.

Poor Lionel.


Meanwhile, it looks like Adele’s new single is going to have as much longevity as Richie’s, with over 88 million views on the video (correct at time of writing) just four days after it was released.


The internet has been getting great craic out of it altogether though, with one of our favourite Hardy Bucks, The Viper, getting in on the action over the weekend with this hilarious parody.

We don’t think we’ll ever, and we mean ever, get tired of that.


Absolutely brilliant.

On top of that, in case you haven't had enough of her over the past week, it was announced earlier that Adele and Graham Norton will be teaming up for a special one-hour show all about the singer ahead of the release of her new album, 25.
