Watch Adele’s “Hello” Save Thanksgiving Dinner on SNL

Later this week, millions of Americans will gather with family and friends for Thanksgiving. They will then try to avoid discussing politics, an effort inevitably undermined by the aunt who “saw an ISIS” at the supermarket or the grandparent intrigued by the “very interesting trend” of transgenderism.

In one of this week’s best SNL sketches, those familiar tiffs and tensions are resolved by a single uniting force: Adele. Turns out you can prevent the stray racist comment just by blaring “Hello” in your dining room.
