The Wanted Bring High Drama In “Show Me Love (America)” Video: Watch

Here are the highlights of the video for The Wanted‘s new single “Show Me Love (America)”Max George in a police uniform. Got it? Good — we’re all clear.

No, but really! The boys of The Wanted are back with a new visual for their latest single, a big, swooning orchestral number, and the black-and-white video is fittingly high on drama: Shots of the boys in suits standing on stage together in an empty theater (an old-fashioned trope but a welcome one) are intercut with footage of a couple in the throes of relationship turbulence; as the woman runs through the street all distraught, she encounters the boys in various forms. (That’s how Max ends up dressed as a cop, obviously.)

It’s a more mature sound from them, but the video — while beautifully shot — comes up a little short on sentiment.

Watch it up top.
