Why Are Adam Levine & Behati Prinsloo Covered In Blood In Maroon 5 "Animal" Music Video Preview? — PHOTO

It seems that Maroon 5 is hard at work on the set of their upcoming music video for their new song "Animal" (you know, the one with the awkward lyrics?), and, based off this, I think we may be in for a pretty bloody finished product: Adam Levine posted a picture of him and wife Behati Prinsloo on the set of Maroon 5's "Animal," both of them covered in what I hope is fake blood. It also looks like Levine's sporting a nasty head wound, but that smoldering look he's giving to the camera might distract you from that.

Maroon 5 music videos have a history of being somewhat violent — in "Maps," Levine was a man whose lady love is killed after he cheats on her, and "Misery" is basically Levine's ex-girlfriend Anne Vyalitsyna beating the sh*t out of him all over downtown Los Angeles.

So, the concept that the music video for "Animal," with its lyrics that deconstruct sexual desire into a primal, animalistic urge ("Baby I’m preying on you tonight/ Hunt you down, eat you alive/ Just like animals, animals, like animals-mals/ Maybe you think that you can hide/ I can smell your scent for miles/ Just like animals, animals, like animals-mals," for instance), it's not crazy that the video would include some bloodiness. But, Levine and Prinsloo are covered in it!

Which leads me to ask...why? Are they playing a couple who, in an effort to spice up their sex life, watch a lot of True Blood and then get so into it that they have to recreate the show's bloodiest sex scenes?

Were they, perhaps, both involved in a Carrie-esque prom prank, and they've both just left a high school gymnasium after killing a bunch of people with their newly discovered telepathic powers?

Were they victims of the blood flood in The Shining?


Seriously, we're probably gonna have to wait for the video to be released so we can find out. But if it's any of these options, well, just remember you read it here first. And I called it.
