This mom got Adele concert tickets for her birthday, had a totally appropriate freak-out

Earlier this month, thousands of Adele fans were pretty disappointed when they couldn’t manage to snag tickets to the record-breaking singer’s 25 tour. OK, maybe “disappointed” is a bit of an understatement. They were infuriated / devastated / all the bad things. That’s why one mom totally did not believe her kids when they gifted her Adele tickets for her birthday. . . and when she realized it was real, she totally lost it in the best way possible.

In a one-and-a-half-minute video entitled “When You Surprise Your Mom With Adele Tickets For Her Birthday” uploaded by YouTube user Michael Pond on Christmas Eve, the birthday lady opens her gift, which is an envelope that says “Hello” on the front (clever, clever!). At first, she seems confused. “I know you must be pulling my leg,” she tells her family (who is meanwhile cracking up across the table).

But when it dawns on her what she was just given, she gasps, and her family bursts into their own rendition of Adele’s “Hello.” She grabs a tissue and covers her face with it, and her pure joy totally gets us in the feels. “Oh my god, I’ve really got to wail,” she says, sobbing as she gets out of her seat. “I’m sorry, I’m going to have to go.”

Hey, her reaction makes total sense. Adele: Making us cry happy tears and sad tears and just ALL THE TEARS IN GENERAL. Check out the full video below and be prepared to feel equal parts adoration and jealousy (because her kids managed to snag tickets. . . can they take us with?).
