The New Mumford & Sons Music Video Is Fascinating to Watch

Mumford & Sons debuted the music video for their new single “Hopeless Wanderer” on Sunday, which normally wouldn’t be exciting news for anyone with a set of ears or eyes.

Except this video doesn’t star Mumford & Sons at all. Instead, the Grammy-winning band somehow, someway enlisted the comedy styles of Jason Sudekis, Ed Helms, Jason Bateman and Will Forte do to the lip-synching and banjo-playing and J. Crew-wearing for them.

The result is a cross between a Saturday Night Live digital short and lost audition tapes for The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford. It’s sort of funny, once you look past the fact that it was still made by Mumford & Sons.
