Adam Levine Plays Behati Prinsloo’s Stalker in Maroon 5’s Creepy, Bloody “Animals” Music Video

By  |  0 Comments

Ew! Adam Levine and his wife Behati Prinsloo got bloody while shooting Maroon 5‘s dark and twisted new music video, “Animals.”

The video begins in a meat shop, where Levine’s character works as a cleaver-wielding butcher who has his eye on Prinsloo. He is seen casually walking behind her on a street, evading notice when Prinsloo suspects somebody is following her.

In the clip, Levine also stands outside in the pouring rain, peering up at Prinsloo’s window through a pair of unflattering thick-rimmed glasses. Inside her bedroom, Prinsloo sleeps — safe and sound — until Levine breaks in and cuddles beside her in bed.

Another part of the video shows Levine’s stalker character approaching Prinsloo in a club, only to be rejected, and later bedding her while blood trickles down from the ceiling.

The scenes are set to lyrics like “Baby, I’m preying on you tonight / Hunt you down eat you alive / Just like animals…” with added verses: “Maybe you think that you can hide/ I can smell your scent from miles / Just like animals.”
