Adele's 'Hello' Video Narrated By David Attenborough Is Naturally Perfect

Beloved British treasure and longtime naturalist Sir David Attenborough was recently convinced to lend his iconic voice -- best known to American audiences as the one narrating the expansive nature documentary series Planet Earth -- to Adele's "Hello" video.

"Won't Adele be cross with me?" he asks the BBC host politely before giving it a go.

Treating the pop star's video intro as footage of a rarely-seen animal in its natural habitat, Attenborough begins.

Adele Says 'Hello' to Hot 100 No. 1 Debut

"Look as the world's most famous pop star zooms down a dirty road in an old Mini. Money certainly hasn't changed her. Battling against strong winds and the weight of expectation, she's convinced now is the time to strike. She, like all pop stars, needs to hunt to survive."

Obviously, a flip phone joke must be made. "But there's a problem," he narrates as Adele tries her ex on an antiquated cell. "The single is poor and she hasn't updated handset since 1999."

Watch it below and bless the BBC for this.
