NEW YORK — If there’s one thing that can bring all sides together, it’s the voice of Adele.

“Saturday Night Live” played off the popularity of Adele’s new hit “Hello” during this weekend’s show. In the skit a family sits down for Thanksgiving dinner when the conversations become awkward and political.

It begins with a debate about the Syrian refugee situation, and devolves into other topical controversies.

The punch line? There’s a remedy for the hostility; when things get heated, a family member simply plays “Hello” on a nearby stereo.

Suddenly all family members come together, breaking into song as the singer’s hit blares.

The skit starred Beck Bennett, Jay Pharoah, Cecily Strong, Aidy Bryant, Matthew McConaughey, Kate McKinnon and Vanessa Bayer.

McConaughey hosted Saturday’s program, with Adele as the musical guest.
