Video(s) of the Moment #593: Adele

By on Wednesday, 5th October 2011 at 6:00 pm

In Adele‘s new video for the sad love song ‘Someone Like You’, the sombreness of the music is extended to the theme of the video: Adele walking around the lonely, empty streets of Paris. Alone.

“Who would have known how bittersweet this would taste?” That sums it up, really. That and how at the very end, we’re left watching Adele looking at herself in the mirror. There’s nothing more sad than realising the person you love is gone. And isn’t coming back. And you’re left. Alone.

Also included below is a find from YouTube: a video filmed by actor/director Casey Ford Alexander, taking Facebook statuses and using them to construct an engaging story based on the song. While Adele’s official video is dark and brooding as the song is, I find levity, yet more emotion with Alexander’s. Watch both and decide for yourself which you prefer.
