Adele‘s hit "Hello" is helping one woman get the last laugh with a former flame.

It all started when Mary Caldarella decided to text Adele’s emotional lyrics to her ex-boyfriend. She shared the hilarious results via Twitter on Wednesday, writing, “When the ex falls for Adele lyrics.”

Caldarella’s screen grabs have since gone viral – and it’s not hard to see why.

The man on the receiving end of the prank was beyond baffled by her confession that she “must’ve called a thousand times.” Caldarella kept on going with it, prompting her former boyfriend to tell her, “I feel like you’ll really regret saying this when you’re sober.”

It’s just the latest example of how Adele’s song has taken on a life of its own. Upon its release on Friday, the video broke Taylor Swift and Miley Cyrus‘ previous Vevo records, had celebrities overwhelmed with emotion and inspired Ellen DeGeneres to make a can’t-miss parody.
