Hello from the other side … of Adele.

The man recently photographed protectively walking behind the “When We Were Young” singer, 27, has developed his own obsessive fan base overnight.

Adele’s new bodyguard Peter Van der Veen is setting fire to the rain on Twitter, inspiring dozens of steamy posts with his shaved head, sharp style and sexy stare.

According to Mashable, Van der Veen was employed to provide extra protection for the songstress, who is increasing her public appearances to promote her new album, 25.

If Van der Veen’s face looks familiar (and not just from your dreams) you may recognize him from his years looking out for Lady Gaga, or his apparent 2005 beefy Mr. Europe bodybuilding win (probably the former).

Whether this is your first time laying eyes upon on Van der Veen or a welcomed reunion, expect to see him a lot more, for the Internet has knighted him as their new hot dude idol.
