Maroon 5 Busks in NYC Subway in Disguise

August 22, 2019


-Hey guys, I’m here at
the 50th Street subway station right below Rockefeller Center with Adam Levine
and James Valentine of Maroon 5. The three of us about to
go on to the subway platform and start busking in disguise. No one knows
that this is going to happen, nobody knows
that it is Maroon 5. Let’s do this.
-Yeah! [ Subway brakes screech ] ♪♪ [ Harmonica playing ] -♪ Well,
this thing called love ♪ ♪ I just can’t handle it ♪ ♪ This thing ♪
-♪ This thing ♪ -♪ Called love ♪
-♪ Called love ♪ -♪ I must get round to it ♪ ♪ I ain’t ready,
crazy little thing called love ♪ ♪ There goes my baby ♪ ♪ She knows
how to rock ‘n’ roll ♪ ♪ She drives me crazy ♪ ♪ She gives me hot

cool sweat ♪ ♪♪ ♪ I gotta be cool ♪ ♪ Relax ♪ ♪ Get hip and get on my tracks ♪ ♪ Take a back seat hitch-hike ♪ ♪ And take a long ride
on my motorbike ♪ ♪ Until I’m ready,
crazy little thing called love ♪ ♪ Oh, yeah,
crazy little thing called love ♪ Thank you very much.
[ Cheers and applause ] -We’re going to do one more song
for you guys, but first I’d just like to say
hello, my name is Jimmy Fallon.
[ Cheers and applause ] And this is Maroon 5! Give it up, New York City! -I wish I could leave that on. ♪♪ ♪ I’m hurting, baby,
I’m broken down ♪ ♪ I need your loving, loving,
I need it now ♪ ♪ When I’m without you
I’m something weak ♪ ♪ You got me begging, begging,
I’m on my knees ♪ ♪ ‘Cause really I don’t care
where you are ♪ ♪ I just want to be there
where you are ♪ ♪ And I got to get
one little taste ♪ ♪ Sugar ♪
– ♪ Sugar ♪ -♪ Yes, please ♪
-♪ Yes, please ♪ -♪ Won’t you come
and put it down on me? ♪ ♪ Right here ♪
-♪ Right here ♪ -♪ Yes, I need ♪

    Always people saying same thing about camera crew, look at camera angles and quality guys, do u really think this is filmed by prefessional equipment? İf nobody is actually looking them before scene starts, it means they are using normal cameras

    It will never be anything but pathetic that the group watching before “the reveal” was 1/50th the size of the group watching once they found out it was Maroon 5.

    Also, Adam Levine did a better performance of “Crazy Little Thing Called Love”, by far.

  • Reply Jerry Nordstrom August 6, 2019 at 3:17 pm

    I like these, but comm'on now.. a video crew, security team and ah.. there is no donation guitar case open with a few dollars in it… pure give-away. Pretty cool, but really no surprise.

    Just shows that the music didn't matter, watch how people turned back when they heard it was Adam. They wouldn't have been there if he kept wearing his disguise.

  • Reply Mike Kelly August 8, 2019 at 1:16 am

    There is something to be said for putting your fucking phone down and enjoying that moment in time.

    What is fascinating about this is how much more people are into it, once they realize he is actually a famous person. It's curious.

    It's funny as fuck that you can have a concert on the street in New York city but yet the cops come in Oregon if your radio is to loud. I've never been to new York city but if I can walk down the street singing and listening to my radio and not have the cops called on me that sounds like a nice place.

    Honestly find it so sad when people see random musicians just pass by and later, find out it’s Jimmy Fallon and Maroon 5 and they rush back to see them perform. Kinda sickening that so many people don’t recognize talent for what it is instead of who the most popular people are
