Maroon 5's "Misery" music video has made its way out in full, featuring frontman Adam Levine and real-life girlfriend Anne Vyalitsyna as a couple. Instead of seeing the two lovers as a romantic pair, the clip shows them having a violent relationship. Vyalitsyna kicks and punches him, but still at one point gives him a passionate kiss.
Violence mixed with humors and a bit of romance scene, that's what director Joseph Kahn does in this music video. "It kind of turns the whole idea of the sexual energy between two people - a guy and a girl, a music video, you've seen that a million times - that exists in this video. But it's turning it on its a** and having the girl be the more domineering one who's trying to kill me," Levine told MTV.
"Misery" is released as the lead single of the band's September 21 release "Hands All Over". It narrates about a man's desperation in wanting love from a girl.
