The “Sugar” music video features the members of Maroon 5 cruising the streets of LA and playing surprise performances at weddings. The concept of the video was based off of the 2005 romantic-comedy movie, “Wedding Crashers.” The thrilling reveal of Maroon 5 performing at each wedding has made it one of the most popular videos ever made. It currently is the 8th most watched YouTube video with 2.5 Billion views.

The music video for “Love Somebody” shows the members of Maroon 5 and Emily Ratajkowski being covered by grey paint. The grey paint in the video splashes over everyone while they are performing in front of a white background. The video is stylistically amazing and creates a feeling that no one is physically touching in the video. The paint is symbolically used to represent desire.

The timeless music video, “This Love”, is filled with sex and rock and roll. One part of the video consists of Maroon 5 jamming out in a studio set with cherry blossomed trees in the background. The other part of the video shows Adam Levine making love to his girlfriend. At the time, Adam Levine’s love making scene was considered to be so scandalous that the FCC had to censor it with computer generated flowers.
