So first we were all like:
"Wow! This Drake song is hilarious - no wait - it's so good. OMG this video is hilarious. No wait. HE IS A GENIUS. Okay, I'll work in a minute, but first I'm going to read every analysis about this video. Hold the phone, shut the front door, there's a Napoleon DYNAMITE mash-up?! Oh and now the New York Times is in on it? I can't stand this. I love it so much, I might explode."
This is the video that started it all:
This is the Napoleon Dynamite version I'm so into:
So that happened. And then, there I was, minding my own business, when ADELE, G.D. HER , decided to release "Hello" and my heart basically stopped.
Nick, whom I work with, sent me this tweet from some person or organization on the Twitter machine or something, I don't know I GOT TOO EXCITED:
"Adele's 'Hello' video viewed 1 million times per hour in its first two days."
That's a really big deal. Know why that happened? It's a really amazing song. Here are the things I think about when I hear it:
1. Are her songs about one missed opportunity and the one who got away or multiple missed opportunities and the many who got away? I don't know if I have one "one that got away" who could inspire such a ditty, let alone many. If it's one, she might want to talk to someone about it because we are really tallying up the songs about lost love. If it's many well, hats off to you darling.
2. She must have called a thousand times? Really? Did you block your number? Because I feel like it would be awkward to call that many times, no matter how many glasses of wine you've had, and have him see your number 1,000 times. Just stalk him on Facebook LIKE THE REST OF US.
3. It's such a good song, I'll just listen to it one more time.
4. Okay. One more.
5. One more, but then I'm really going to go to work.
