Twitter Is Convinced Adele & Sam Smith Are the Same Person & We’re Skeptical
It’s no secret Twitter has a mind of its own (cough, Rihanna and Lupita Nyong’o heist film, cough), but the latest conspiracy is leading us to believe that Sam Smith and Adele are long lost cousins twice removed.
Here’s what you need to know: Back in January, one user pointed out that Adele and Smith have never been in the same place at the same time, which sent the Twitterverse into a state of confusion.
It read, “Anyone notice that Adele isn’t at the Grammys this year? It’s because Adele and Sam Smith are the same person and you’ll never see them both in the same place at the same time.”
This prompted another person to add to the theory by posting a video in which he plays “Hello” at a slower speed and, well, see for yourself.
Did you know that when you slow down Adele it?s actually Sam Smith pic.twitter.com/SysXOoQgZY? jesse (@jesse21valona) February 5, 2018
Although the clip starts off with Adele’s soothing vocals, the song seems to morph into a Smith cover when the audio is slowed down.
