In a recent episode of "Jimmy Kimmel Live," Adam Levine took to the busy streets of Los Angeles disguised as a parking enforcement officer and pranked the drivers.

The Maroon 5 frontman shocked the Los Angeles drivers not with parking tickets but with tickets to his band's upcoming Chula Vista tour date.

Funnily enough, the disguise generally worked. The entertaining trip showed up as a recent segment on "Jimmy Kimmel Live."

Television host Kimmel disclosed to the audience that perhaps the main thing more unpleasant than driving in Los Angeles is parking in Los Angels and that when faced with a hard circumstance, he likes to make things harder.

He added that they decided to enlist the help of Levine since his band, Maroon 5, has a tour beginning on May 30 in Chula Vista.

Kimmel continued that they believed it would be a good time for the award-winning musician to give out concert tickets disguised as parking tickets, with Levine disguised as parking enforcement, as clueless drivers meet him.

In the clip, which already amassed over 1.3 million views on YouTube, the 40-year-old can be seen with his first victim, who was sitting in his parked vehicle.

"I know this is crazy, but we have 30 seconds to actually put the money in the meter. 30 seconds. I gotta be a stickler, sorry. It's a crowded street," he told the driver.

The last victim had quite the opposite response because after Levine revealed himself, she still didn't recognize who he was.

At that point, the young driver started filming Levine, so he could properly report the occurrence, as he joked, "Don't hate the maid, hate the meter, pal."

After some talk, Levine told the driver that he got something for him, and afterward he gave him the concert tickets.

The next victim was a woman. Levine accused her of pulling into her parking space far too quickly. He kidded her that it's not her day.

Not buying Levine's parking law, the woman immediately defended herself, saying that he can't ticket someone for simply pulling into a parking space.

After the two disputed for a bit, the woman wound up knowing the former "Voice" coach. Levine then gave her the tickets.
