When Maroon 5 and Christina Aguilera dropped their collaborative single “Moves Like Jagger” last month, did anybody doubt that the video would feature a parade of people shaking, strutting, and dancing like the legendary Rolling Stones frontman?
That’s exactly what the team delivered in the clip that premiered last night.
But the video for “Moves Like Jagger” (directed by Jonas Akerlund, who has also pointed a camera at things for Lady Gaga and Britney Spears) also adds a shirtless Adam Levine (you know, for the ladies) and quite a few women channeling the spirit of Kelly Rowland (because let’s face it, that’s how Mick would have wanted it).
Check out the video after the jump, though be warned that because of the errant nipples, it should probably be considered NSFW (unless, of course, you work for ABC).

Of course, leave it to Mick to steal the whole show with the well-worn interview clip where he says he can’t believe the Rolling Stones have been a band for two years and that he only expects to last another year.
The drop-ins of Jagger dancing in between the fresh clips of people pulling off his moves are a healthy reminder that Mick has been shaking around for the better part of five decades. Perhaps bopping your head like a chicken and busting out jump kicks is the secret to eternal youth? If that’s true, then David Lee Roth is probably going to outlive us all.
What do you think of the new video? Do you agree that it enhances the song? And is it a little weird that Christina Aguilera is barely in it, and then she doesn’t even do the Jagger strut when she finally shows up?
