The music video for Maroon 5’s “Sugar” features the band crashing various weddings and playing for the shocked party-goers. The plot of the music video was inspired by the 2005 romantic comedy Wedding Crashes, starring Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson.
Despite the claims that they really did surprise real people, the whole thing was actually staged. All of the brides and grooms, and all of their guests were unfortunately actors. One of the actors, who played the parent to one of the “brides” came forward and let the cat out of the bag, even revealing that all the weddings featured were filmed at the same location over a 3-day period. Other sources refute this, insisting that they were not actors. Instead, the producers of the music video claim that they met and spoke with the grooms at each of the weddings to get their approval and coordinate the surprise.
