In this decidely non-official video for the soul star’s upcoming official third single “Set Fire to the Rain,” the song is reimagined as a love triangle between a woman, her boyfriend and her boyfriend’s lover, who appears to be stealing him away with some modern dance.

Pretty impressive, yes? Honestly, if I hadn’t known going in that it was fake, I probably would have bought it as legit. The heavy make-up and big hair were dead-on.”Adele” sure is set for Halloween for the rest of her life.
Sure, the vid was a little low-budget, but overall pretty killer. Guesses on how long it takes before the director, Andrew Vallentine, is given a real music video job?
