And here are a selection of our favourite reactions to Easy On Me, starting with a suitably ridiculous post from Doncaster Council, of all accounts...
Unfortunately, as Adele’s video was clearly filmed within the confines of Doncaster metropolitan borough, she will be issued with a fixed penalty notice for littering immediately.— Doncaster Council (@MyDoncaster) October 15, 2021
Despite repeated requests, we will not be going easy on her. @adele#EasyOnMepic.twitter.com/43SvqcjkMM

Adele first teased Easy On Me, and immediately inspired another popular meme thanks to the clip’s opening shot.
The Easy On Me music video references past clips from the Grammy-winning star, most notably her signature hits Rolling In The Deep and Hello.
Opening with a black-and-white shot of Adele talking on the phone outside a country house, the Someone Like You singer is later seen driving on an open road, and as the song progresses, the video eventually fills with colour.
Before the release, Adele gave two revealing interviews with the UK and US editions of Vogue magazine, in which she discussed everything from her divorce from ex-husband Simon Konecki to her recent weight loss.
