The viral challenge started on a Chinese app TikTok where the original video was published showing an army of Haribo gummy bears signing the popular song.

The video rapidly spread on social media with thousands of users creating their own versions. The popular internet contest also swept the sports world with professional teams and athletes posting their own comical versions.
Russian gymnasts, who got down to work after a lengthy Christmas break, paid tribute to the winner of five Grammy awards by presenting a chorus of hand grips ‘singing’ Adele’s song.
KHL hockey teams Salavat Ulaev and Spartak also joined the action by posting Adele-themed videos on their social media accounts.
An army of cupboard Dynamo FC players also rendered “Someone Like You” hit under the direction of a hussar.
The San Francisco Giants step up to the challenge as well presenting their own idea of singing Adele’s super hit.
Chess board units, skies, basketball balls, and skates were also involved in the bombshell #adelechallenge which has gripped the internet community.
The most creative videos made for the challenge gained thousands of views on social media, making internet users burst into laughter while listening to Adele’s beautiful tune.
Meanwhile, there are rumors floating around that the British star might retire from singing career after it was reported that she has shut down her touring firm, Remedy Touring LLP.
