Maroon 5

And then the conspiracy theories came for Maroon 5 "Sugar"...

Cosmopolitan finally applies their investigative reporting skills on something important like the Maroon 5 "Sugar" video.

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.

Conspiracy theorists and/or cynics (realists?) can check it out at Cosmopolitan

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 "Animals" (Samuel Bayer, dir.)

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.

I'm going with scenario three: Maroon 5 reunite with Samuel Bayer to take the primal nature of the song to an extreme - and make sure there are no CGI gerbils driving Kia Souls.

Whatever the case, Adam's having a grand old time in that meat locker. It's worth a few clicks. And Bayer probably loves the opening credits to Se7en as much as you do.
