The guys from Maroon 5 have certainly switched up their image for the V era — at least, visually. Their “Maps” video told the story of a fatal car crash in reverse and the just-released clip for new single “Animals” plays like a mini-horror movie. Adam Levine stars as a creepy butcher with a bad habit of stalking female customers including real-life wife Behati Prinsloo.
He follows her around town, takes photos of the blond bombshell in her apartment and then, disturbingly, strips off and hangs out in a meat truck. But wait, there’s more! The couple eventually hook up and have surprisingly explicit sex (don’t be surprised if this is removed from YouTube) while covered in blood. I think it’s a dream sequence but it’s still creepy as fuck. Watch Maroon 5′s horror opus up top.
