Maroon 5 dropped a new song and video today. The song is “Don’t Wanna Know” and features Kendrick Lamar for just around 18 seconds. Sadly, he isn’t in the video. No announcement of a new album, but hopefully soon.
The song is pretty good and is growing on me. The video is massively disturbing. The band is dressed up as Pokemon characters and they are being chased all around by idiots with cellphones trying to capture them. Obviously poking fun at Pokemon Go. The video features Sarah Silverman and Vince Vaughn (probably because it was directed by the director the “Wedding Crashers” , David Dobkin.
With the video, I think they are also poking fun at how they probably feel with the media and crazed fans. They are always dodging the paparazzi and getting bothered by fans wanting a picture or an autograph. Maybe I am putting too much thought into it.
Alright, here is the video. Give it a view just to see the strangeness that is going on. Enjoy!
