Count the Celebrity Cameos in Maroon 5's "Don't Wanna Know" Music Video
You came for Maroon 5‘s catchy tune “Don’t Wanna Know,” but you’ll stay to try to keep up with the amount of celebrity cameos in the band’s new music video. As a Pokémon Go parody, the music video features the band members and several celebrities dressed in wild creature-like costumes constantly running from kids who are trying to capture them.
The entire video mock the game that swept the country as soon as it was released, poking fun at people who were trespassing private property for the sake of catching certain Pokémons. Adam Levine, however, is busy balancing running from kids, partying and getting over his ex-girlfriend Sarah Silverman (cameo No. 1).
As the lyrics say, ” Wasted (wasted) / And the more I drink the more I think about you / Oh no, no, I can’t take it / Baby every place I go reminds me of you,” so Levine spends his nights drinking and his morning reviving himself with yoga and green juices—a juxtaposition certainly not lost on the viewer. Unfortunately for this heartbroken character, the vicious cycle isn’t enough to get over his ex.
The music video pauses about half way through to reveal that the band is filming its project. The director requests Levine’s costumed character wears a cowboy hat, but the Maroon 5 frontman rejects it. “I don’t know if I want to be like silly,” he says. “It kind of goes against brand.”
Sadly Levine can’t get out of his cycle, turning to the bottle, one-night stands and other celebrities dressed in costume to get him through the pain of his breakup.
Watch the video to see which celebrities you can catch. Remember, you gotta catch ’em all!
