Lionel Richie’s “Hello” Taunts Blind Girl by Asking If She is Looking for Him

Don’t quite know if it’s romantic to stalk a blind girl—taunting with the question, “Is it me you’re looking for?”

Someone told me to watch this video today and I must say that what I notice now is less heart-warming and more—just—stalker-ish. It’s almost as creepy as the one scene from Trolls that features the same song and teasing refrain.

Don’t get me wrong, the piece is a cult classic but even for the 80’s, this is a disturbing twist to what becomes somewhat of an overblown metaphor…

Classic retro R&B at it’s finest, I guess. Enjoy.
