Soulful songstress Adele has sparked yet another trending topic on social media with her latest song Hello.
Hello, which garnered over 144 million views in a week, is currently on 318.3 Million.
At first the song trended when it was released, and now the #HelloChallenge is making waves online.
The challenge involves chatting with a friend (preferably an ex-girlfriend or ex-boyfriend) using the lyrics of the song:
I was wondering if after all these years you’d like to meet
to go over everything
They say time is supposed to heal ya but I ain’t done much healing
Can you hear me?
Am in California dreaming about who we used to be
When we were younger and free
I’ve forgotten how it felt before the world fell at our feet
There’s such a difference between us and a million miles
One was lucky if they were able to complete the lines before the other party realized what it was about.
Some people fell for the challenge, some realized it was the song’s lyrics and some didn’t go quite as expected.
Here are some of the most hilarious ‘conversations’ from the trending topic:
