The Cringe: Lionel Richie – “Hello”

“And in my dreams, I’ve kissed your lips a thousand times…”

The big man himself is just a few weeks away from a national tour with Guy Sebastian, so what better time than now to pay tribute to the king of daggy pop, Mr. Lionel Richie. Normally, I’d go with the awesome Dancin’ on the Ceiling video featuring the one and only Harvey Dangerfield, but today I’ve chosen something just a little creepier from Lionel’s filmography. It’s time for his torch ballad, so get your lighters out for Hello – the video you have to see to believe.

So, here we go. Lionel is a teacher in this video, right. One of his students is a blind girl. Innocent enough – that is, of course, until he starts FOLLOWING HER AROUND THE SCHOOL and CALLING HER HOUSE AT NIGHT. Nothing wrong with that at all, of course not. I mean, what’s twenty years and some fucking EYESIGHT between lovers? It just gets weird. And Lionel isn’t exactly the best actor you’re likely to come across, either. In conclusion, this video is outstanding for the lolz but otherwise? Juuuuuust a bit fucked up. Plenty of tickets still available to his tour, by the way – maybe the fact that he’s into the young blind kids that he teaches has something to do with that? Just sayin’, hide your kids, hide your blind!
