Adam Levine Sang in a GT-R Sort Of
Last week, Nissan put out a press release that was all like “OMG U GUYZ we r totally gonna have Adam Levine sing ‘SUGAR’ in one of our cars so stoked #blessed #Maroon5 #TheVoice #sexiestmanalive #sexiestmaroonalive #sexiestmaroonof5.”
Read: it touted that The Voice coach/Maroon 5 frontman would sing his band’s latest single “while in the middle of a unique driving experience that only…the GT-R can deliver.”
Read: for those who can’t read corporate-speak, that means that Adam Levine was going to sing in a GT-R.
So, hey, guess what? Adam Levine sang in a GT-R. How about that!

“Nissan says I cannot perform while being driven in their incredible badass supercar, this GT-R right here,” says Levine at the start of the video.
We’re relatively sure nobody actually said that, but if it was said, it was probably in an exchange that went a little something like this:
Nissan Person: Hey, The Voice’s Adam Levine.
The Voice’s Adam Levine: Yes?
Nissan Person: Betcha a bottle of cola that you can’t sing a Maroon 5 songs in a GT-R.
The Voice’s Adam Levine: I totally can.
Nissan Person: Cannot.
The Voice’s Adam Levine: Can too, yuh-huh.
Nissan Person: What if I said it was moving?
The Voice’s Adam Levine: *stares*
Nissan Person: Moving really fast.
The Voice’s Adam Levine: *comically loud gulp*
Nissan Person: Oh, but you’re not driving. We’ve got a guy. Stunt course. The whole package. So what: are you chicken, or are you beefcake?
The Voice’s Adam Levine: *whips head up*
The Voice’s Adam Levine: *gazes into Nissan Person*
The Voice’s Adam Levine: *rises to feet*
The Voice’s Adam Levine: I. Am. Beefcake.
Of course, saying that Adam Levine sang in a GT-R may be a bit generous. Technically, sure, he sang a few words here and there, but it was all intermittent between a barrage of whoops and bleeped words that are not suitable for network television.

Basically, this is a high-production version of the sing-along you do on your way to work every morning. Except, you know, you probably aren’t driving a GT-R on a closed course and you likely aren’t anywhere near as handsome as Adam Levine.
