OMG, Ellen's bizarre, uncontrollable giggle noise made me bust out laughing!

I loved this!

This was delightful, and everyone involved deserves props. Ellen for being Ellen, Adele for selling it so well, Jamba dude for being so chill and professional, right down to "you have knives and twizzlers," and the two other Jamba employees in the back dying but trying to hold it together.

Seriously, every time I think "I have reached the maximum level of liking Adele - there is no way I can like her more," she does something like this and I like her even more. She's like cheesecake for my brain.

I agree with everything everyone said. This is great and Adele is great.

Super tiny detail at the very last moment that I enjoyed: Adele takes the wheatgrass out of her mouth in a clump. The Jamba Juice guy offers to take it from her. She reaches forward to hand it to him, thinks better of it, then manages to put it in a napkin all by herself.

It seems like a no-brainer and a low bar, but a lot of rich people totally would have handed someone a chewed clump of wheatgrass expecting the help to figure out how to deal with it.

So, has Adele taken classes at Groundlings or is she just an utter natural? She's just so great and so game for anything. Quick on her toes and just commits fully. Also, I've always liked how good-natured and almost child-like Ellen's pranks are like, scaring Taylor Swift.

Adele is the best, even at making voice messages

I loved her Carpool Karaoke as well. Clearly the "hello from the outside" line is too strong not to re-use.

Man, she committed with that wheatgrass. I don't know how anyone could munch on that with such a blase expression on their face. It's awful stuff.

Now I'm trying to think when I can say You have knives and Twizzlers in a regular conversation.

Ellen is a magic being from another dimension. I'm starting to believe that she must at some point have portalled Adele through as well.

My nephew ambushed me a while back, totally belting out the lyrics: Why did Adele cross the road? To say HELLO FROM THE OTHER SIIIIIDE!

This made my day. I love Ellen's pranks.

Her mastery of impervious entitled richlady face at 1:21 is brilliant.
