Maroon 5 Debuts Its Feel Good Wedding Crashing Video, Sugar

Maroon 5 (M5) debuts their latest video “Sugar” from their fifth studio album entitled ‘V’ (pronounced five) and it’s a hit! It’s quite possibly one of the catchiest tunes at the start of 2015. In the video, Lead Singer Adam Levine explains that the band will cruise around Los Angeles, California, in an effort to hit up as many weddings as possible as surprise guest performers.

With each wedding, the reactions of the brides and grooms are priceless. I got married last November and I know if M5 had “crashed” my wedding, I’d be speechless too. Right now though, there’s some debate about whether or not the weddings in the video were real or fake.

The only confirmed real wedding of the entire video
Updated: The only confirmed real wedding of the entire video was this lovely couple

The video was directed by David Dobkin, director of the hit movie “The Wedding Crashers” that starred Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn. It’s a feel good video and great pop song with a throwback to funk and sounds of the 80s.

It’s a brilliant effort from a logistical, branding and marketing perspective and fans appreciate seeing real people participation. I mean heck, who doesn’t love weddings. I guarantee it’ll get you dancing and leave you smiling from ear to ear.

A Quick Music Video Review: ‘The Writing’s On the Wall’ by OK Go.

OK Go, an American alternative rock band originally from Chicago, Illinois, currently residing in Los Angeles, California is set to release ‘Hungry Ghosts’, their first new OK Go studio album in four years.

Who remembers their famous video all shot with them doing choreographed moves on treadmills? By the way, that song was called ‘Here It Goes Again’. If this new video is any indication, there might be a few more creative masterpieces on their way.

In this video, OK Go uses art and design to create mind-bending optical illusions that will leave you saying “OK, no” or maybe even “OK, what?!”. The song itself is “OK”, but it’s the video that makes it all worth the 4mins and 17 seconds.

To shoot the entire video in one take, must’ve taken them tremendous preparation, but it paid off. One can only imagine how many retakes and rollbacks they probably went through.

Well worth it!!
