Below is the video for Maroon 5’s new song ‘Sugar.’ It’s a pretty good song. I don’t hate Maroon 5 like a lot of dudes do.
Here, give it a watch, then meet me below the video for some discussion.
Okay, this is what Rolling Stone had to say about the video:
Maroon 5 channel Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn circa 2005 in the goofy clip for their latest single, “Sugar,” as they surprise random brides and grooms with impromptu performances of their slinky funk-pop song. Wedding Crashers director David Dobkin helmed the clip.
“We’re gonna drive across L.A. and hit every wedding we possibly can,” Levine says at the beginning of the video, which was filmed on December 16th, 2014. “It’s gonna be awesome.”
At each venue, the film crew rushes in and sets up a massive white backdrop, as guests stare with puzzled curiosity. Once the band – in mid-performance – is revealed, the couples’ reactions range from deer-in-headlights shock to hyperventilating glee.
Like, what the fuck, Adam Levine? You think you can waltz in to an unsuspecting person’s wedding–the biggest moment of their life–and be like, hey I’m Adam Levine and I’m at your wedding. I promise you’ll love it.
What fucking hubris is that? What fucking asshole thinks he’s so popular he can do that? Adam Levine, that’s who. I wonder how many weddings they had to cut from this because he was booed, heckled and jeered out of the venue. I bet it was infinity thousand.
And lest you forget, this is also a dude’s biggest day. Here you are, at his wedding, sauntering in and getting his bride all hot and bothered for your dick? What the fuck? Now, on his wedding night, his new wife is thinking about boning you and not the love of her life.
No Adam Levine. That’s a bad Adam Levine.
I mean, this is not a Bro move. Not at all. Minus eight billion Bro points, Adam Levine.
Unless he fucked every bride. That I would begrudgingly respect.
