I know exactly zero people who would be happy with Adam Levine strolling into the middle of one of the most important days of their life and serenading them with some hipster love song. Just, no.

Um. “We played the parents of the bride and yes, everything was staged.” HOW DARE YOU, INTERNET? How dare you put words in her mouth and/or take that direct statement that she made out of context?

I’m just really happy that all of these couples didn’t have their day ruined by Adam Levine. I found it very suspect to say the least that all of these couples seemed thrilled.
