Here is the synopsis of “Payphone” music video from Octone:
The video begins with a flashback that starts with a beleaguered Levine torching his ride and dialing (possibly) his lost love’s telephone number at a payphone. Another typical day at the bank for Levine is shown next, which turns into chaos when some bandits enter and take charge (one of them is played by the band’s guitarist, James Valentine) – all of this happens while the song plays in the background. Levine and his beautiful female co-worker (played by Dutch model, Bregje Heinen) escape unscathed, but when some cops mistake him for one of the bank robbers, he tells the female co-worker to hide in a car and steals a convertible that belongs to Wiz Khalifa to get away from them. A car chase follows and when Levine is almost caught by the police, he steers the stolen convertible onto the wrong side of the road and causes a huge explosion, which destroys one of the police cars. When he finally reaches his destination, he passes by a place where Wiz, the owner of the car, performed his rap earlier. After Adam gets out of the convertible, it also explodes and a bleeding Levine enters a booth with the titular payphone, probably to call for help.
“Payphone” featuring Wiz Khalifa is Maroon 5‘s lead single off their upcoming fourth studio album titled “Overexposed.”
