Maroon 5's sleepy fanbase has been woken up over the past week after leaked photographs of the members of the L.A. pop group were put up online of them dressed up as... Pokèmon? Okay, the aren't in any actual Pokèmon costumes, but it looks to be somewhat of a spin-off.
This could only mean one thing, right? Yup. Maroon 5 are shooting another goofy music video.
Thanks to JustJared, we have a major insight on what the next Maroon 5 music video will look like. It's not just Mr. Levine dressed up as a mysterious, goofy cartoon monster, but the entire band is dolled up in these monstrous costumes. It has been confirmed that David Dobkin returned as director for the music video and it will star actor Vince Vaughn. The music video was shot for the band's upcoming single, set to be released this fall.
