Adele? 'Set Fire to the Rain' video

Posted on

Adele better hurry up and release the official video for her third single off 21, because it looks like she’s got some (scarily similar) competition.

In this decidely non-official video for the soul star’s upcoming official third single “Set Fire to the Rain,” the song is reimagined as a love triangle between a woman, her boyfriend and her boyfriend’s lover, who appears to be stealing him away with some modern dance. Watch the clip, intercut with moody, hidden-in-the-shadows shots of Adele (or “Adele”), below:

Pretty impressive, yes? Honestly, if I hadn’t known going in that it was fake, I probably would have bought it as legit. The heavy make-up and big hair were dead-on.”Adele” sure is set for Halloween for the rest of her life.

Sure, the vid was a little low-budget, but overall pretty killer. Guesses on how long it takes before the director, Andrew Vallentine, is given a real music video job?

Readers: Were you fooled?
