Unless your Twitter account spontaneously exploded in the middle of the night, you’ll have seen that the world is going INSANE for Adele’s new single Hello which premiered on Nick Grimshaw’s Radio 1 Breakfast Show this morning.

And here’s the insanely WTF part – Dixon from 90210, as in Annie’s adopted brother Dixon, plays Adele’s love interest in the music video. Yuh huh.

At first we were like we know we know that face, but where from? And then it hit.

Dixon’s 90210 character was played by Tristan Wilds until the show ended in 2013, and before that he starred as Michael Lee in The Wire.

And now he’s in an Adele video. What a world.

The 25-year-old American actor has been concentrating on his music career for the last couple of years and was nominated for a Grammy in 2013 for his debut album New York: A Love Story, but lost out to Rihanna.

He’s expected to release a second album soon, so expect to see a lot more of his face popping up all over the place.

In the black and white Adele video he appears laughing and cooking dinner, but is later seen arguing with the singer and walking away in the rain before packing bags into a car and leaving.

We can’t deny, we love a classic Adele heartbreak song, and with Tristan’s handsome face making an appearance it’s almost enough to convince us to stay in tonight with a blanket and box of chocs…
