  • Adele has released the music video for her track, Oh My God.
  • The singer worked with Sam Brown on the video - the same director from her Rolling in the Deep music video.
  • "To collaborate together again a decade later was nostalgic to say the least," Adele shared on Twitter.
  • Meanwhile, fans have been going crazy trying to decipher all the hidden meanings and messages in the video.


Adele has fans freaking out with the music video for her track Oh My God, taken from her fourth studio album, 30.

The singer revealed that she worked on the video with Sam Brown, the same director who collaborated with her on the video for Rolling in the Deep a decade ago.

"I got to work with Sam Brown again for 'Oh My God' who directed the 'Rolling In The Deep' video! So to collaborate together again a decade later was nostalgic to say the least. We filmed this one on the day Easy On Me dropped, there were a million things going on all at once," Adele shared on Twitter, continuing by thanking the crew for their "patience and pulling it all together".

"It was a lot of fun," she added, saying: "Although right at the end a huge python was on set so I skidaddled my arse straight out of there! [sic]"

Meanwhile, fans have been going crazy trying to decipher all the hidden meanings and messages in the video.

The music video, which is set in black and white, does a great job of paying homage to the Rolling in the Deep video, with Adele also seen seated in a chair as she sings (same as in the Easy on Me video). That chair is set on fire towards the end, perhaps signifying the end of one phase of the star's life. 

From the hair and wardrobe, to the dancers and animal appearances, see if you can pick up any major symbolism from the music video below.
