Southern University’s Human Jukebox marching band has offered up a pretty mind-blowing instrumental cover of Adele’s “Hello,” and frankly we don’t know how to feel. It’s a marching band on a football field —complete with cheerleaders!— so there’s a part of us that was to go do something sporty like kick a field goal (that’s a thing, right?). But then again it’s Adele’s most heart-shattering song to date, so it kind of makes us want to hide under our bedcovers and sob.
If you thought Adele’s soaring vocals would take a sledge hammer to your heart, this army of horns makes it all the more intense. Look at the pain in their eyes, goddamn it! Did a football game continue after this, or did everyone just go and call their exes?
