LOS ANGELES (AP) — The aspect of Adele’s new video that seems to be getting the most attention is not that it’s a new song, or that she sounds great and looks beautiful. It’s that she’s using a flip phone. Director Xavier Dolan tells the Los Angeles Time it’s driving him crazy that Twitter users are zeroing in on the flip phone. Dolan says he doesn’t like filming modern phones or cars because when you see them in movies, it reminds you that you’re in reality. He says if he films an iPhone or a modern car, it feels like he’s making a commercial. He says the phone booth in the video is much more important symbolically than whether Adele also is using a Samsung or an AE9.
