You guys know about Maroon 5? They’re a pop band famous for songs like Moves Like Jagger (featuring Christina Aguilera), and Payphone (featuring Wiz Khalifa rapping about how his cars start with a push button).
Also, none of them are Maroon. Pop music is a LIE.
A few months ago, Maroon 5 announced that their next video would be made up of fan-submitted video clips. The next single was going to be called Daylight, and so the project was called the Daylight Project. On the Daylight Project’s website, they asked their fans to submit videos of things like “Film yourself partying. Hard…” or “Film yourself talk about what your biggest regrets are.” Because when you want to honestly confess your deepest feelings, you want to do it to a judge on "The Voice."
Well Maroon 5 got plenty of videos, and yesterday released the “Daylight” on Vevo and YouTube. Among the tearful confessions and shots of people dancing, there was a very special guest. BOXMAN.
Yes, Boxman, one of the earliest Smosh creations, had made his way into the Maroon 5 video for Daylight. And it wasn’t someone dressed up as Boxman, it was straight up just a clip of Boxman 2.0.
So did some sneaky Smosh fan submit the clip and pretend it was their own? Is there a video editor over at Maroon 5 who loves Smosh? Does MAROON 5 WATCH SMOSH? SO MANY QUESTIONS!
Here’s the Video for Daylight. Boxman makes his appearance around 5:55.
What do you think happened? Is there an EPIC Smosh fan that tricked Maroon 5? Let us know in the comments!
