Oh wow. Sir David Attenborough has narrated the start of Adele’s video for Hello and it’s basically the best thing in the history of music videos AND nature documentaries.

The GENIUS pairing of Attenborough and Adele came about on Greg James’ Radio 1 show today when Greg asked Sir David if he’d be up for the task.

“Will Adele be cross with me?” asked Sir David, adorably.

"I think Adele would probably love this more than anything in the whole world,” Greg assured him.


Which is true, unless Adele is a fool (Adele is not a fool).

“The lesser spotted Adele is about to be everywhere again. Hello!” calls David Attenborough over the sepia-tinged drama of Hello.

Hello, Sir David! Hello!

He also rips serious Mick out of the singer’s choice of mobile phone, saying: “But there’s a problem, the signal is poor and she hasn’t upgraded her handset since 1999. Hashtag flip phone.”

What phone does the 89-year-old naturalist even have?

We bet he has an Apple watch. Like we’re living in the future.

Here is the video Enjoy!

Adele is rumoured to be playing Glastonbury 2016. Sir David as special guest? We're calling it now.
