Either this video exists in a superfantastical world where the outlandish is the everyday, or Adam Levine is tripping his face off. You'll need to stay tuned to the end of this wild adventure to find out the answer.
Just another evening for Adam Levine, except for two weird things: 1) His supermodel wife Behati Prinsloo asks him to pick up milk; and 2) He swings by Future's house for a listening session where he falls into a Deep Dream.
The charge is that — wait for it it — some of the weddings in the video were set-ups, and not the surprise drop-ins as presented and that one of the brides in question might be America's Next Top Model contestant Raina Hein.
So, if music videos were the last place where you had a vestige of hope — I assume you gave up on the sanctity of marriage long ago — then you might be in for a letdown, even though it'd only be fair to note that Adam Levine has stated in interviews that the Grooms were in on the surprise, with each doing what they needed to do to facilitate the guest performances.
UPDATE: The floodgates are now open with lots of actors being recognized and/or admitting that they participated in staged marriages. Of course, anyone who's ever seen a typical wedding video can tell you the different between shooting video and shooting a music video. And "Sugar" is surely lit and blocked like a music video. (That said, is anyone really worked up about this? Will it crush you when I tell you that most artists don't live in the mansions you see in their videos, or that they're not surrounded by booty 24/7?)
Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine has clearly studied the rules of wedding crashers — and the credits, getting Wedding Crashers director David Dobkin on-board to lead the band through a series of gonzo wedding drop-ins across LA. It's a fun gambit, even if the goal is just to deliver a wedding band surprise and not to pick up drunk bridesmaids.
Okay. Part of me here thinks that, after his girlfriend was killed, Adam Levine's character lost his sanity and developed a taste for blood. When he sees the object of his latest desire —played by real-life wife Behati Prinsloo — on the job, he develops an unhealthy obsession that he can't wait to enact in reality.
Another part of me thinks that Adam's studied a lot of Criminal Minds episodes and may wish to be a serial killer in his next big film role; This could be considered his audition.
Whereas the other "Daylight" video showcases random fans and people from around the world connecting with the song, this version showcases random street musicians from around the world actually playing it.
Maroon 5 and director Jonas Akerlund's massive crowd sourced video for "Daylight" — announced back in September — perfectly balance the personal and the universal. The backbone here is the confessional footage, revealing all sorts of secrets, hopes and fears from fans all around the world.
