Adele 1

Running time: 5'

AUT 2011, 5’

This could be a classic YouTube video. A young woman is sitting in front of her laptop computer, speaking into the camera. She is going to sing Adele’s song “Someone like you”. At first she more or less manages a cover version, but soon she can’t keep up and starts singing wrong notes. So she has to listen to Adele, and is obviously moved by the song. Instead of looking into the camera, her gaze turns inward, resigned and sad. A commentary on YouTube as a platform for self-expression.
