Apple has unveiled a series of commercials which feature video shot by iPhone 6 users. Each of the advertisements shows off the high quality recording capabilities of iPhone, most of which demonstrate some of the more interesting camera features like the ability to easily capture time-lapse and slow-motion video.

The seven videos are shot from a variety of places around the world, each clip is 15 seconds long and features an accompanying soundtrack. Those interested can find the song names for each song featured in the ads on the YouTube page for the individual videos.

You’ll likely start seeing these on TV during the traditional timeslots that Apple runs commercials, but the videos are embedded below for easy viewing as well.

2015 single by Adele

"Hello" is a song recorded by English singer-songwriter Adele, released on 23 October 2015 by XL Recordings as the lead single from her third studio album, 25 (2015). Written by Adele with its producer, Greg Kurstin, "Hello" is a piano ballad with soul influences (including guitar and drums), and lyrics that discuss themes of nostalgia and regret. Upon release, the song garnered critical acclaim, with reviewers comparing it favourably to Adele's previous works and praised its lyrics, production and Adele's vocal performance. It was recorded in Metropolis Studios, London.

"Hello" was an immediate global success, topping the charts in at least a record-breaking 36 countries, including in the United Kingdom where it became Adele's second chart topper, following "Someone Like You", and had the largest opening week sales in three years. In the United States, "Hello" debuted atop the Billboard Hot 100, reigning for ten consecutive weeks whilst becoming Adele's fourth number-one single on the chart and breaking several records, including becoming the first song to sell over a million digital copies in a week. By the end of 2015, it had sold 12.3 million units globally (combined sales and track-equivalent streams) and was the year's 7th best-selling single while it stands as one of the best-selling digital singles of all-time.[3]

The accompanying music video directed by Xavier Dolan and co-stars Adele and Tristan Wilds. The music video for the song broke the Vevo Record by achieving over 27.7 million views within a 24-hour span, held previously by Taylor Swift's "Bad Blood" which accumulated 20.1 million views in that timeframe. "Hello" also broke the record for shortest time to reach one billion YouTube views (87 days). The music video for the song received seven nominations at the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards, including Video of the Year and Best Female Video.[4] At the 59th Annual Grammy Awards, "Hello" won three awards; Record of the Year, Song of the Year, and Best Pop Solo Performance.[5] The song also won the Brit Award for Song of the Year,[6] and APRA Award for International Work of the Year.[7]

Writing and composition[edit]

"Hello" was written by Adele and Greg Kurstin and produced by the latter. Kurstin also played bass, guitar, drums, piano and keyboards, while Adele also played drums.[9] "Hello" was written in Chiswick, London, something not normally done by Adele, who said she likes to write her music at home.[10] The writing process for the song was slow, taking six months to complete. Initially Adele and Kurstin started writing the first verse; finishing half of the song, six months later Adele contacted Kurstin to finish the song with her, with Kurstin stating he was not sure "if Adele was ever going to come back and finish it."[11]

"Hello" is a soul piano ballad,[2][12] played in the key of F minor at a tempo of 79 beats per minute. The repeated chord progression heard in the verse, played by the piano, follows two progressions and a passage (Bridge) progression (passage or Bridge progression connects two main progressions to each other) of Progression #1: Fm(i)–A♭(III)–E♭(VII)–D♭(VI), Passage progression: Fm(i)–E♭(VII)-Cm(v)-D♭(VI)-Fm7(i7)-E♭(VII)–D♭(VI), Progression #2:Fm(i)–D♭/F(VI)–A♭(III)–E♭(VII). According to, Adele's vocals span from F3 to A♭5 in the song.[13] During the chorus, Adele is heard singing the lines over layers of backing vocals, piano and drums which were described by The Daily Telegraph as having "a very luscious wall of sound".[8]

Lyrically, the song focuses on themes of nostalgia and regret and plays out like a conversation. The song was noted for containing themes of regret and was seen as a follow-up to her single "Someone like You" appearing to reflect on a failed relationship. The song's lyrics were also seen as being conversational, revolving around "all the relationships of her past", ranging from friends, family members and ex-partners.[14] Speaking on the song's lyrical content, Adele told Nick Grimshaw on The Radio 1 Breakfast Show: "I felt all of us were moving on, and it's not about an ex-relationship, a love relationship, it's about my relationship with everyone that I love. It's not that we have fallen out, we've all got our lives going on and I needed to write that song so they would all hear it, because I'm not in touch with them."[15] According to Adele, the line "Hello from the other side" signifies "the other side of becoming an adult, making it out alive from your late teens, early twenties."[11]


On 18 October 2015, a 30-second clip of "Hello" was played during a commercial break on The X Factor in the United Kingdom. The commercial teased what was then new material, with her vocals accompanied by lyrics on a black screen.[16] Josh Duboff of Vanity Fair wrote that "the Internet collectively lost their minds after the broadcast of the trailer.[17] On 22 October, Adele announced the upcoming release of 25 to her fans on Twitter. She also shared that "Hello" would be released on 23 October as the lead single off of the album.[18][19][20] On 23 October, Adele joined Nick Grimshaw's show on BBC Radio 1 for the song's premiere.[21][22]

Critical reception[edit]

Alexis Petridis of The Guardian described it as "a big ballad, but a superior example of its kind", and opined that the song is "precisely the kind of lovelorn epic ballad that made Adele one of the biggest stars in the world."[23] Writing for The Independent, Emily Jupp stated in her review of the song that it "might not be groundbreaking, but Adele's return with her familiar, smoky sound is very welcome". She called it an "'if it ain't broke' ballad" and said: "Adele does what she does best, belting out emotional tales of love and loss much the same as with her last album, 21, but this time, with a little more self-forgiveness."[24]

Greg Kot of the Chicago Tribune wrote: "Lyrics that work best when they zoom in on personal details match her combination of vocal power and restraint."[25] Neil McCormick from The Daily Telegraph called it "a beautiful song of loss and regret", adding that "it takes a grip on the kind of memory every listener holds somewhere in their heart and merges it with Adele's own drama."[8]Rolling Stone ranked "Hello" at number 6 on its year-end list to find the 50 best songs of 2015.[26] Several publications have commented on similarities in the theme of the song and accompanying video with that of "Hello" by American singer Lionel Richie.[27][28]

"Hello" also rose from 6 to 1 on the Radio Songs chart in just its fourth week (the greatest leap to number one on the chart's 25-year history), marking the quickest climb to number one on the chart in 22 years, since Mariah Carey's "Dreamlover" reached the top in its fourth frame on 28 August 1993. Additionally, "Hello" became just the third song to top the Hot 100, Digital Songs, Streaming Songs, On-Demand Songs and Radio Songs tallies simultaneously in the nearly three years all five charts had coexisted.[41] "Hello" remained atop the Hot 100 for ten consecutive weeks, becoming only the 31st No. 1 in the Hot 100's history to reign for at least 10 weeks, and only the 4th for a number one debut, following "One Sweet Day" by Mariah Carey and Boyz II Men (16 weeks), "Candle in the Wind 1997/Something About the Way You Look Tonight" by Elton John (14 weeks) and I'll Be Missing You by Puff Daddy & Faith Evans featuring 112 (11 weeks).

"Hello" debuted at number one on the Canadian Hot 100 on 3 November 2015, for the chart dated 14 November 2015, selling 140,000 copies and outsold Justin Bieber's "Sorry", which sold 40,000 units the same week. The song was streamed 4.79 million times in its first week, setting a record for the most streamed track in a single week in Canada.[48]

She also the first woman in Grammy history to win Song of the Year twice.[54] This marks the first time in Grammy history that two different songs with the same title have been nominated in this category after "Hello" by Lionel Richie in 1985.[55] Adele became the third woman to win Record of the Year more than once, after Roberta Flack and Norah Jones winning for The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face and Killing Me Softly with His Song; and Don't Know Why and Here We Go Again (with Ray Charles), respectively. Additionally, both Florence LaRue and Marilyn McCoo also receive this accolade twice as part of The 5th Dimension, with "Up, Up and Away" and "Aquarius/Let the Sunshine In".[56]

Music video[edit]

"When I heard the song I saw a story right away. [The video] is highly unoriginal. The lyrics are 'Hello, it's me' and then you see someone picking up a phone. I'm not good at imagining super conceptual videos. I just thought it would be nice to have her walk around the house and make phone calls and end up in a forest, with maybe some flashbacks in it."

— Xavier Dolan, behind the concept of the music video[82]

The accompanying music video for "Hello" was directed by Canadian actor and filmmaker Xavier Dolan and released on 22 October 2015, despite the fact the song was released as a single a day later.[83][84] The concept of the video revolves around a recently broken-up young woman calling a younger version of herself.[82] Portions of the video—mostly the finale on the pond and the shot of her opening her eyes in the beginning—were filmed with IMAX cameras, making it the first music video in IMAX format.[85] The video draws inspiration from Dolan's semi-autobiographical debut I Killed My Mother, which was made when Dolan was barely 20.[82] The video was filmed on a farm in Quebec over four days in September 2015.[82]

The video stars American actor Tristan Wilds. According to Dolan, Adele called him after an unspecified incident of police brutality in the United States, suggesting that a white male not be cast as her love interest in the video. Dolan elaborated "She was just like, 'I'm concerned with the reality of the tensions between authorities and the black community, and I want to send a message out there.'"[86][87] Dolan contacted Wilds via Skype and explained the concept for the video, which Wilds agreed to take part in.[88] During the filming, both Adele and Wilds were asked to improvise and "tap into" their past relationships in order to convey the correct emotions. Dolan also filmed shots of both Adele and Wilds having conversations and laughing.[88] The sepia toned video shows Adele performing the song in a small house and outside in a wooded forest, intercut with scenes of her making a tearful phone call and flashbacks to a past relationship with Wilds' character.[89]

The flip phone used by Adele in the video was widely commented upon due to being of a retro style. Dolan replied to the remarks by saying: "It makes me uncomfortable filming iPhones because I feel like I'm shooting a commercial. Those things: iPhones, laptops, all those elements, to me, they bring me back to reality: That's not what you want. You want to get out of your own life; you want to enter someone else's; you want to travel somewhere; you want to be told a story. I'm realizing maybe I've been more distracting than anything else with that flip phone, but it wasn't intentional!"[90]

The music video for "Hello" broke the previous Vevo Record by achieving over 27.7 million views within its first 24 hours of release. This record was previously held by the music video for Taylor Swift's "Bad Blood", which had amassed 20.1 million views in its first 24 hours.[91] Later, the video continued to break Miley Cyrus' "Wrecking Ball" Vevo record for the fastest video to reach 100 million views in five days.[92] The phrase "Adele hello" was also the top YouTube search term of Friday and Saturday, and on average the video was getting one million views per hour during the first two days, peaking at 1.6 million in a single hour, beating the peak view rate of the trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which peaked at 1.2 million views per hour.[93] The video was parodied in a Thanksgiving-themed sketch on Saturday Night Live.[94]

As of October 2021, the video is the 30th most viewed video on YouTube,[95] having earned over 2.8 billion views, as well as the 26th most liked video on the platform with over 17 million likes.[96][97]

Live performances[edit]

Adele performed "Hello" live for the first time for a BBC one-hour-long special, Adele at the BBC, which was recorded on 2 November 2015 and was broadcast on BBC One on 20 November 2015.[98][99] She also performed the song at the 17th NRJ Music Awards on 7 November 2015,[100] at Radio City Music Hall in New York City on 17 November 2015 as her opening number (Adele Live in New York City), and on Saturday Night Live on 21 November 2015.[101] On 23 November 2015, after appearing on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Adele recorded the song with Fallon and his house band, The Roots, playing classroom instruments. The version was broadcast on the show the following night.[102] On 13 December 2015 Adele performed "Hello" on the X Factor live final at The SSE Arena, Wembley.[103]

A 25-year-old Arapahoe man accused of shooting a man in the stomach after an argument over song choice has changed his plea.

Acting U.S. Attorney Bob Murray announced Tuesday that Ronald Blaise Jenkins pleaded guilty to using and carrying a firearm during and in relation to a crime of violence.

According to court documents, Jenkins and the victim were parked in a vehicle pullout on the Wind River Indian Reservation on Jan. 5 when they began fighting over a song on the radio which escalated to Jenkins shooting the victim.

The victim was reportedly dropped off at the emergency room at SageWest Health Care in Riverton and then taken to a hospital in Billings to receive advanced care for his injuries.

Jenkins' sentencing has been set for Dec. 20.

Adele’s new song ‘Easy On Me’ praised by fans as single is finally released: ‘I feel like I’m 15 again’

Celebrities and fans have reacted with joy after Adele debuted her first song in six years, Easy on Me.

The video for the song, posted on YouTube at midnight, has already accumulated 12 million views.

The single sees the Grammy-award-winning singer bare her soul and describe the period following her most recent album in 2015 as the most turbulent in her life. In that time, she split from charity boss husband Simon Konecki in 2019. She has now begun a new romance with US sports agent Rich Paul.

Adele said 30, her new album which she will release on 19 November, was her attempt at explaining her divorce to eight-year-old son Angelo.

The stirring video for Easy on Me, shot in black-and-white and filmed in Canada last month, features Adele taking a last look around an empty house before picking up her suitcase, putting on sunglasses and leaving.

Clips from the video appear to pay homage to the video for her 2015 song Hello, with eagle-eyed fans pointing out similar shots in a country home. The same house, in Quebec, was used for both music videos – this time shot with director Xavier Dolan.

In it, Adele climbs into her car and drives off, passing a “sold” sign. “Go easy on me, baby,” she sings over a piano as she drives past a newly married couple.

“I was still a child, didn’t get the chance to feel the world around me, I had no time to choose what I chose to do.”

Later, seemingly speaking to Konecki and Angelo, Adele sings: “You can’t deny how hard I tried, I changed who I was to put you both first but now I give up.”

Reactions to the song and video have been universally positive.

Actress Alicia Silverstone was among thousands of fans on Twitter reacting to the song, posting a video of herself with the caption “go easy on me Adele” as she prepared to listen with armfuls of wine and hard spirits.

Lil Nas X tweeted: “I feel like I’m 15 again.”

On Instagram Stories, Drake said: “One of my best friends in the world just dropped a single.”

Many fans celebrated the moment where the music video transitions from black and white to colour.

“I’ve learned a lot of blistering home truths about myself along the way,” Adele said in a statement announcing her next album.

“I’ve shed many layers but also wrapped myself in new ones … I’ve painstakingly rebuilt my house and my heart since then and this album narrates it.”

    The day was approaching.

Holidays for everyone except me. Well, what can you do if the director had to account for the company's achievements in this decade.
