Adam Levine, we can hardly look at you!
Turns out that super cute music video for Maroon 5‘s new tune ‘Sugar’ — in which the band crashed “real weddings” to the delight of the brides and grooms — was COMPLETELY STAGED!
Soon after the clip was uploaded to YouTube, fans began recognizing the totally surprised couples and even some of their guests.
The first groom — actor Nico Evers-Swindell, who you may remember from that awful Lifetime movie about Prince William and Kate Middleton.
And one of his “guests?” Actor Eric Satterberg.
The first indication that the weddings were all a ruse was the recognition of “bride” Raina Hein, who was a contestant on ‘America’s Next Top Model.’
Two of the actors who played parents have since come forward to confirm that Maroon 5 lied to us all!
“The Buzz on the internet is whether the Maroon 5 ‘Sugar’ music video is real or staged. We played the parents of the Asian bride and yes, everything was staged,” Stephen and Barbara Woo wrote on Facebook. “In fact, all of the wedding were filmed at the same location over 3-day period. Sorry for the buzz kill (sic).”
Well, there you have it. Can you return a song on iTunes?
