Maroon 5 premiered the video for One More Night on MTV. The song is the new single from the band’s recently released album Overexposed. The video was directed by feature film director Peter Berg (Friday Night Lights, The Rundown, Hancock, Battleship). Actress Minka Kelly (Friday Night Lights, The Roommate, Charlie’s Angels) stars in the video as singer Adam Levine’s wife.
In the video, Adam Levine plays a boxer. The sexy song lyrics and Minka Kelly would lead you to assume this will be another video with Levine rolling around in bed with a beautiful woman. Instead, Peter Berg taps into the darker elements of the lyrics and uses boxing as a metaphor. Happy scenes of Levine at home with his wife and baby are interlaced with shots of Levine preparing for a boxing match. Then you see Levine fighting his opponent as Kelly is home packing up her and the baby’s belongings.
The other Maroon 5 bandmates have fun roles in the video. Bassist Mickey Madden plays the ring announcer at the boxing match. Drummer Matt Flynn is a trainer for the opposing boxer. Keyboardist PJ Morton is Levine’s cut man. Guitarist James Valentine plays a spectator at the fight that is rooting for the opposing boxer.
