Watch Sir David Attenborough narrate Adele's 'Hello' like it's a nature documentary

Adele-Hello-1100-810x442.jpg

Adele's new music video couldn't be more perfect, right? The sepia tones, her flawless eyeliner and spine-tingling greeting...

Cue Sir David Attenborough. 

While on Radio 1 talking about his new documentary The Hunt with Greg James, the living legend narrated Adele's intro to her video but not before asking "Will Adele be cross with me?". The radio host replied with what we were all thinking: "I think Adele would probably love this more than anything in the whole world."

The narrator comments on Adele's interesting choice of phone: 

"Backing against strong winds and the weight of expectation, she’s convinced that now is the time to strike, she, like all pop stars, needs to hunt to survive. But there’s a problem, the signal is poor and she hasn’t upgraded her handset since 1999. Hashtag flip phone."

And prepares us for the epicness that is about to happen:

"We are about to witness one of the great phenomena of the natural world, it’s important for such a delicate and finely tuned animal that the lighting and setting is just right. And now it is."

It cements our opinion that life would be blissful if David Attenborough internally narrated everything we did.
