Maroon 5 chart topping hit Payphone ft. Wiz Khalifa music video dials up fans with an action packed, yet romantic story. Directed by Samuel Bayer, this Serial Pictures video kicks off with an office crush, Adam Levine, turned knight in shining armor and features VFX explosions, car chase, helicopters and gunshots by The Mill L.A.
"Sam [Bayer] shot a beautiful car chase collision sequence and set the bar high for the effects we needed to create to match the live action footage beauty and excitement," shares The Mill L.A. Producer Arielle Davis.
This first-time collaboration for The Mill Los Angeles and Bayer starts off with a bang with this #1 hit single.
