Adam Levine Bares His Butt In Bid For Song Of The Summer

Why would Adam Levine go completely nude for the new Maroon 5 video? Maybe he just wants you to know he puts his pants on one leg at a time, like everyone else. Also, in case you were wondering, he does sock-sock, shoe-shoe; not sock-shoe, sock-shoe. These are things we studied very closely for your benefit in a purely professional manner.

The clip for "This Summer's Gonna Hurt Like a Motherfucker" was directed by Levine and Maroon 5 photog Travis Schneider, and dropped on Saturday night. It's done in one single take, following Mr. Behati Prinsloo from the shower, through the entire backstage area of London's SSE arena, and to the stage. It was just shot last week, according to RollingStone.com, at one of two concerts the band performed before Levine had to cancel dates due to strain on his vocal chords.

Is a nice, long view of Levine's muscular butt enough to make this the song of the summer? Well, we've already seen him getting frisky with Prinsloo in the "Animals" video, so he's going to have to up the game a little more than that. Oh, maybe by having a song that prompts us to sing along, shouting "motherfucker" about 10 million times? That's an edge, for sure.
