…Wait… what’s that you say? This isn’t the official video to Adele’s “Set Fire To The Rain”? And what’s that you say? Adele isn’t even in this video?

Yep. You read that right. The woman in this video is not Adele, but merely an adoring fan who happens to bear an uncanny resemblance the famously heartbroken 21-year-old we’ve all come to love.

The video is an independently produced interpretation by a group of very, very talented people who are not affiliated with Adele. Check the credits if you don’t believe us!
