Adam Levine Admits Wedding Crashing in "Sugar" Video Was Staged

Pin It thought that was real?

Okay, so did we. Adam Levine admitted that some – probably most – of the wedding crashing scenes in Maroon 5's "Sugar" video weren't exactly authentic. "I do want to clear up something about the video," he told The National. "Half of the weddings we crashed and the other half were set up." This, as you might imagine, killed our dreams for our future weddings.

"We did that to cover our bases and to make sure we had all the footage," he continued. "I would say 65 percent of the video was real. It was crazy and a lot of fun." This isn't that much of a surprise, though, considering how perfect just about every wedding-crashing moment was captured.

While we doubt anyone would've said 'Is that Maroon 5? They've got to go' when the group popped up at several weddings and performed, there had to be at least one person in the room asking why there were shadows moving behind a huge white sheet that shielded the group from being discovered. Of course, none of that was in the video.
Still, Adam said back in January, shooting the video was "an out of body experience," adding, "I had no idea I would be affected by the overwhelming reactions we received from the couples and guests. Being able to create an unforgettable experience for several people was the highlight of it all."

Basically, he had an idea of how he would be affected, but, we still can't get enough of this song or the video. Here it is again for your enjoyment.
