So, we've mostly all seen the story of the woman who text her ex-boyfriend using only Adele lyrics, and it immediately got me thinking... just how would the men of the UK on Grindr respond to the lyrics? Surely they'd immediately twig, with 'Hello' being the biggest song in the world right now? And of course, a few did, but more often than not, the guys fell for it hook, line and sinker. And the results? Quite hilarious, if I do say so myself.
For those who don't know, Grindr is a social networking app for men who like men. Some go on looking for friends, some for dates, and some for hook-ups. I thought I'd go on for something a little different.
Firstly, there was this guy who was clearly ahead of the game:
Then came Adele's biggest fan:
And general confusion:
This guy did NOT want to waste his Friday night:
And this one was simply looking for some special attention:
No, I hadn't been drinking, and yes, I've got issues:
This poor soul thought he'd annoyed me in a past life:
I had a couple of guys respond with an aubergine and a peach emoji, which was of course all part of reminding me to get some of my five a day into my system and not some sort of weird 21st century innuendo. But all in all, genuine confusion ensued. Adele's grip on the music world may be frighteningly strong, but the lack of awareness of her lyrics honestly shocked me! Findings? Adele lyrics only really work in context. Who would have thought it?
