Maroon 5’s most recent music video for their hit Don’t Wanna Know has an interesting theme. The video stars lead singer Adam Levine and other celebrities such as Sarah Silverman and Vince Vaughn, dressed up in costumes that vaguely resemble Pokémon.
Viewers see them running desperately away from swarms of people, who attempt to capture them with their phones – a clear reference to Pokémon Go.
While Pokemon GO was the biggest thing since sliced bread when it launched back in July, popularity has waned a bit since then. However, there is still a rabid Pokemon GO fan base just waiting to get out and capture the next rare Pokemon that appears. Our own Kelly Bornstedt, recently updated her original review for Pokemon GO to offer her thoughts on the more recent versions of the addictive mobile game.
What do you think of this new video? Are you still playing Pokemon Go? Let us know in the comments.

Before I became a Geek Under Grace I was a student of Journalism and have always aspired to write for a gaming and geek culture publication. I am truly blessed to have found an outlet to reach not only thousands of fans, but those who may not have yet found Christ. My favorite genre of games is third-person/sandbox games. I like the freedom that they allow both in gameplay and in scale and they just seem less bland and limited than more linear titles. I still have a soft spot for RPG games but I now enjoy JRPGs far less than I did as a child because they are still basically the exact same as they always were, with a few exceptions of course. I also enjoy playing more tactical third-person multiplayer shooters or first-person shooters that try to shake things up. I absolutely hate games based on WWII or Vietnam as those settings and those types of gameplay have been done to death. Though I am not opposed to a future Assassin's Creed title being set during one of these wars. I also typically tend to stay away from MOBA's as they are notorious for abusive, and generally unsavory online communities. My favorite game of all time is Chrono Trigger, which ironically enough is a JRPG but its one that I consider untouchable in quality. The runner-up for my favorite game of all time would be Star Fox 64.
