The sexy lead singer of Maroon 5, Adam Levine, turns into a sadistic serial killer in the band’s new music video for “Animals.” Levine shares many not-so-sweet (yet scorching hot) scenes with new wife, Behati Prinsloo.
The premise of the story the band puts forth, is that an “Average Joe” (Levine), who works at a rundown butcher shop, stalks and falls deeply in lust with the girl from next door (Prinsloo). It’s a little disturbing, seeing that the newlyweds are waist deep in blood for most of the video.
To be honest, it shouldn’t really turn that many heads because we live in a day and age where shows such as “American Horror Story” and “The Walking Dead” are rampant and play freely on millions of television sets nationwide. Perhaps the producers got inspiration from the aforementioned shows? We’d like to think so.
Samuel Bayer, the legendary director who’s responsible for “Smells Like Teen Spirit,” and “What Goes Around,” also directed this horrific little number.
We don’t know if the feel of the Halloween season was the reason for such a spectacle, or the band really needs to shed their human skin and be, well, animals. We’re okay with either reason, because the video, and song, is an A+ in our book.
Oh, and if the music video is too hot, or gory, to handle, there is a “lyrics” version available, too.
