Adele fans have put their detective skills to work and have starting comparing her Hello music video, which she released in 2015, to her newest one for Easy On Me, that was released today, 15 October.
Both videos are mainly in cinematic black and white, and begin with Adele on the phone.
In Hello she’s walking into a house, while in Easy On Me she’s walking out of one, and fans are convinced that it’s the same house in both videos.
She says while outside the building and on the phone in Hello: “I just got here and I think I’m losing signal already. Hello? Can you hear me now?”
In the 2015 music video, Adele strolls round what looks to be an abandoned home and starts having flashbacks of a man presumed to be her fictional ex-boyfriend.
Sheets are covering all the furniture, and there are scattered bits of paper and notes on a desk. Adele also makes a phone call where she can be heard saying: “I don’t know why I was calling."
Fast forward to the Easy On Me video and Adele is back in a house that undeniably looks like the same one in Hello.
Walking away from the house and down the path, the singer then gets a phone call where she says: “Hello darling. You alright? I’m good yeah, all done, everything’s packed. I’m just going to get on the road now, about to leave. Well, hopefully just a couple of hours but if I’m late, go ahead and start without me, all good.”
“I will probably have bad signal. I said I probably won’t have good signal! Yes I can hear you perfectly, can you hear me? Oh for god’s sake. Here we go again,” she continues.
Adele then proceeds to get in her car and puts a cassette tape on to play Easy On Me. As she’s driving away, you see she’s got a trailer full of things attached to the back of the car and, while she’s got the windows down, dozens of pieces of paper come flying out — presumably giving the nod to all the notes shown in Hello.
In a different scene, Adele’s sitting on a dining chair in a largely empty room with the doors open, and as the wind starts blowing through, more pieces of paper begin flying around her.
Adele fans have since questioned if Easy On Me is a sequel to her 2015 song.
One person wrote on Twitter: “The parallel between the Hello music video and Easy On Me by Adele and how she’s now moving out of the house is a work of art.”
A second person tweeted: “Adele’s Easy on Me video is a continuation of Hello. 5 years on and she is telling the story.”
Others also believe the new video pays homage to Rolling In The Deep. Someone said: “Adele built a house in rolling in the deep, she moved in that house in hello and left the house in easy on me. A story teller!! #EasyOnMe.”
In the wake of the obvious similarities, it’s since come to light that Xavier Dolan directed both videos and confirmed that they returned to the Hello house, located in Quebec, to make Easy On Me.
Xavier told Just Jared: “For me, there’s nothing stronger than artists reconnecting after years apart. I’ve changed. Adele’s changed. And this is an opportunity to celebrate how we’ve both evolved, and how we’ve also both remained faithful to our dearest themes. It’s all the same, but different.”
