Lionel Richie’s “Hello” was a huge hit of 1984 and the video for the song, in which Richie plays a teacher stalking a blind student, is even more iconic of that decade.
It’s a song that resurfaces constantly, like a bloated corpse in a canal, but if you feel you need further a reminder of it, then go and buy some of this brilliant
Lionel Richie teaware from Lenny Mud’s store on Etsy (link dead).
Cups, saucers, teapots and travel mugs are graced with a smart, be-mulleted likeness of Richie and the sublime words, “Hello, Is It Tea You’re Looking For?”
What a difference a syllable can make.
