Twitter user @jesse21valona seems to have stumbled on something major when he slowed down his copy of 25 by Adele. He felt that, at the right speed, it sounded like the song was being sung by well-known British singer, Sam Smith.
But you don’t have to take his word for it. Judge for yourself.

Just to keep things scientific, Jesse even made sure to provide a second example.

People seemed to agree that the resemblance was uncanny.

It’s interesting to note that this experiment does not seem to work in reverse.
Although it did leave people wondering what other singers would match up if you changed the speed of their records.

Of course, the important question is will this with work with the Lionel Richie version?
