Adele explains the video:

ive heard some people dont understand the video for it!!!

its based on what the song is about........

i had a shit boyfriend who i knew would be shit, and i knew when i started fancying him, let alone when i got with him it would be a ' car crash relationship ' ......thats the crash bit in the video!
and me and my lovely "on screen boyfriend" Josh are in the car in a que to mess up basically! we've had an argument, i storm out the car then the rest of the vid is us contemplating it!
