“Wait, can you turn around, can you turn around?
Just wait, can we work this out, can we work this out?”
Those lyrics of Maroon 5’s song “Wait” from their latest album “Red Pill Blues” have been worming into our ears for some time now. They recently dropped the song’s music video featuring the band’s frontman Adam Levine and “Baywatch” actress Alexandra Daddario as a couple caught in a crazy breakup mess.
In the video, Adam is seen trying to convince Alexandra to stick around in a series of freaky scenes – Adam waking up in a coffin wearing nothing but boxers, going to Alexandra’s funeral shirtless and bringing her back to life with a scorpion bite before getting punched by somebody, holding Alexandra’s face that turned into mushed paint, swimming underwater with women all dressed in pink, missiles blowing up the wasteland around the couple, and finally the end of the video, which is the creepiest part – Alexandra drives off leaving Adam, and the house as well as Adam literally unravel into nothingness.
The video is crazy AF from start to finish but artfully directed by Dave Meyers, the same guy who helmed Kendrick Lamar and SZA’s “All The Stars,” Camilla Cabello’s “Havana,” Rihanna’s “Where Have You Been” and other equally badass videos.
