Ellen DeGeneres Hilariously Reveals How She Inspired Adele’s New Single ”Hello”—With Help From Drake and Lionel Richie.

While Adele has previously said the lyrics to her latest smash hit are “not about anything specific,” Ellen DeGeneres begs to differ—and insists the song was inspired by a past conversation she had with the British songstress. “Adele and I are good friends.LOS ANGELES, Oct 30 — It may have not cracked the 100 million mark, but Ellen DeGeneres’s parody of Adele’s song “Hello” has gone viral in its own way for integrating Drake and Lionel Richie into an amusing spoof. Ellen DeGeneres got in on the trend Wednesday when she spliced her side of the conversation into the video for Adele’s latest single “Hello,” which will appear on her upcoming album 25.

What fans may not know, says comedian DeGeneres to her daytime talk show audience to set up the spoof, is that Adele’s song is based on a conversation between the two friends. In the video, DeGeneres, sitting in her dressing room, gets a phone call from Adele on her larger-than-life cordless phone (think Zack Morris’ brick phone on Saved By the Bell). Cue the hilarious clip (seriously, we dare you not to laugh) in which DeGeneres answers Adele’s call on an old school phone—giving the singer’s flip phone a run for its money—and complains the Grammy winner’s “talking so slowly.”

As the British singer’s music video continues on, DeGeneres gets increasingly frustrated while pretending to have bad reception (“did you say beets?”), noisily eating a bag of chips, and getting exasperated by how slowly Adele is “talking.” “@Adele I’ll trade 2 tickets to my show for 2 tickets to YOURS!” the “Piece of Me” singer tweeted happily after Adele mentioned in a recent i-D interview that she’d love to see Spears in concert. “Stop by #PieceOfMe and say #Hello anytime!!” “Throwing it way back with this!” she captioned an adorable snapshot of herself as a child smiling with a gap-toothed grin. “Thank you for all the love, I am so blown away.
