"Hello? Can you hear me now?" Adele said in her new music video. 

By now, you've probably watched Adele's new music video for "Hello." And it's probably raised a few questions. Well, we're here to walk you through them.

First up: Why is Adele on a flip phone? Why is her man on a flip phone? Why can't they hear each other? Did they run out of minutes? Why is her second option a rotary phone? Or this phone booth in the middle of the forest?

It makes you wonder if the poor communication in their relationship was caused by poor technology. It's not a terrible excuse to apply to your own past relationships. It's hard to be happy in life when your only cell phone game is Snake.

Then it starts getting real when Adele goes into this deserted house. Is she on "House Hunters"? Why is she making tea? Is she sick? Does she have neck pain? Does she need an Excedrin? 

When Adele opened her eyes, did it feel like someone harpooned your heart? Me, too. 

Then we literally go into Adele's mind — a river so deep with sorrow, you're almost drowning. Who is this man? Is he cooking mac 'n cheese? Who would break up with someone who makes mac 'n cheese? How are we getting this angle of him?

Then it hits you: They broke up because Adele wouldn't stop wearing a GoPro on her forehead. 

At this point, you've shed a tear or two, given yourself a pep talk in the mirror and canceled plans for the night. 

Adele knew that would happen. And that leads us to our grandest set of questions of the day. 

Did Adele literally re-enact the seen from "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban" where he extinguished the dementors with his patronus charm? Is there a more pure way to show love? What does Adele's patronus look like? (Video via Warner Bros. / "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban")

We've done our duty as journalists by asking the hard questions, and the moment we have answers, we'll let you know.
