Adam Levine and his wife supermodel Behati Prinsloo are naked and bloodied in a sex scene in the Maroon 5 ‘Animals’ music video. The frontman and coach on ‘The Voice’ portrays a stalker in pursuit of the stunning beauty and he finds success in that pursuit, to say the least. And, needless to say, it has gone viral.
The single, ‘Animals’ is from the band’s latest album, ‘V,’ which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200. As is always the case, nakedness and sex will get attention. It’s surprising that Adam Levine who is People magazine’s sexiest man alive and his Victoria’s Secret Angel Behati Prinsloo had not already made their debut in a music video together.
But for those who were waiting, the waiting is over. Expectations and hopes and desires are perhaps satisfied. At least for now with this visceral and gritty and most definitely NSFW music video.
Yes, it’s a racy scene as we would have expected it to be but there is a narrative unlike some music videos these days which put a focus on body parts and twerking and such. Directed by Samuel Bayer, Adam Levine portrays a man working in a slaughterhouse. In walks in the woman of his dreams one day, portrayed by Behati Prinsloo.
From that point on, he becomes a stalker — yes, really no other word for it — who will not be denied. Following the gorgeous Prinsloo, he finally has his way with her. It’s a seduction at times sensual and at times unnerving and yes, there is blood and dirt. These are images that will linger in the mind so do be forewarned!
