If it wasn’t already official, it is now. Adam Levine is the worst.
Maroon 5’s (his) recent video shows Levine’s character stalking Behati Prinsloo’s character, unsuccessfully. He deals with this stalking frustration by rubbing meat blood all over himself in a meat cooler, hugging the meat in the meat cooler, and doing a pull-up. He’s also a photographer. The end of the video insinuates that once he breaks into her house, gets into bed with her and shows her his meat up close, she is so overtaken by his sexual prowess that she wants him to rub meat blood all over her, too. Neat!
Thank you, Adam and Behati, for offering yet another piece of media selling the idea that women really want to be stalked and overtaken by predatory lovers. It’s a message we weren’t getting enough of (if I knew how, this is where I would insert the jumps to Twilight and 50 Shades of Grey). Way to use your celebrity for the greater good. I may be laughing on the outside, but I am screaming underneath.
Do what I did: if you aren’t familiar with the song, watch the video with the sound off at first, and imagine what you think the music sounds like. Then turn the sound up half way through. Let me know how that works out for you.
