maroonwiz617 Watch: Maroon 5 Ft. Wiz Khalifa Payphone

Maroon 5 has released the video for their latest single, “Payphone” featuring Wiz Khalifa. In the video, Maroon 5 frontman, Adam Levine, channels his inner tough guy when he saves his co-worker from bank robbers, who just happen to be Levine’s bandmates.

“The video we made for ‘Payphone’ was almost a hundred percent my idea. I think that writing treatments for videos is the best outlet for [creative writing]. It’s so much fun to tell a story in that way,” Levine said. “I don’t think they’ll be able to play it on MTV actually, because there’s guns in it. Maybe they’ll have to blur the guns out. But we decided to kind of not play by the rules, as far as the typical video goes; I’m sick of seeing just a band playing a song in a video, I think it’s fun to try to do something far more different.”

Wiz Khalifa’s role in the video is much less Michael Bay-inspired. Khalifa plays a seemingly homeless man who is trying to get warm with a fire and has nothing to do with Levine’s high-speed car chase.

“Payphone” is from Maroon 5’s upcoming album, Overexposed, which is due out on June 26.
