Watch: Adele Sparks Controversy With New IG Photo

Adele, are you looking for someone like Chet Hanks?

It seems to be the question on the tongue of Tom Hanks' 30-year-old son, who took to Instagram this week to basically shoot his shot in a very public way with the 15-time Grammy winner. 

On Tuesday, Sept. 1, Chet posted a video of himself in a car rocking out to the singer's hit, "Set Fire to the Rain." After the Empire actor danced and sang along to the 2011 chart topper, Chet lowered the music to issue the star a message in Jamaican Patois. 

As the grand finale to his remarks, he urged her to "hit" his DMs and made text and call motions. If he wasn't clear enough, Chet also wrote out his request for the world-famous performer. 

"@theshaderoom PLEASE SOMEONE TELL ADELE HIT MY LINE ASAP !!!!!!!!!!!! I NEED TO TALK TO HER ABOUT SOMETHING," he wrote in the video's caption along with 12 Jamaican flag emojis. 

Adele Through the Years

Chet's public stunt comes on the heels of a recent photo Adele shared of herself on social media. 


The image, which featured the star sporting her hair in Bantu knots and a Jamaican flag-style bikini top, spurred controversy as critics accused her of culture appropriation. 

"Happy what would be Notting Hill Carnival my beloved London," she had captioned the photo, in reference to the annual event held in celebration of Caribbean heritage and culture. It was canceled this year amid the coronavirus pandemic. 

While Adele faced some flack for the photo, it seems to have only attracted Chet, who is known to break out into the Jamaican language, including at the 2020 Golden Globes

Now that Chet has sent his love, the question is—will Adele pop into his DMs to say hello?
