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.
Horror and revulsion is unquestionably gratifying for the typical viewer.
Visits to the local cinema to watch the freshly released horror film seduces those who want to indulge in the explicit violence and blood that relentlessly hits the screen, while exposing one to terrifying visuals, leaving us to scream and tremble in the corner of our seats.
While it is apparent that cinema has killed the video star, music videos, if executed superbly are a perfect place to explore and be exposed to the genre.

Remember when Jay Z spent six hours at the Pace Gallery in New York City earlier this month?
You know, that time he lip-synched to “Picasso Baby” in front of museum goers and invited the likes of Judd Apatow, Alan Cumming and the great Marina Abramovic?
Well, we now have a better idea of the finished product, all in the name of performance art.
On Friday, HBO released a 31-second preview of Picasso Baby: A Performance Art Film, set to premiere on Aug. 2 at 11 p.m., appropriately following Jay Z’s appearance on Real Time with Bill Maher.
“Rap is painting out loud,” Hova says in the preview voiceover. “And you’re putting your fears and vulnerabilities and insecurities to music… concerts are pretty much performance art.”
As expected, John Williams will be returning to a galaxy far, far away.
Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy confirmed on Saturday that the beloved composer will score Star Wars: Episode VII. The announcement was made at a Star Wars fan event in Germany.
According to Williams, who has scored all six existing Star Wars films and has five Academy Awards to his name, fans can expect more of the same sounds in the new J.J. Abrams directed film.
“Of course I haven’t seen the script, the story is still unknown to me,” Williams says in a video attached to the official announcement. “But I can’t imagine there will not be some references to the existing stories that we know that would necessitate and make appropriate the use of some of the earlier themes.”
This information is really music to Star Wars fans’ ears, after a week that included this casting rumor.
Star Wars: Episode VII is slated for a 2015 release.
Jay Z is still on top.
Nielsen SoundScan’s latest numbers have placed the rapper’s 12th studio album, Magna Carta… Holy Grail on top of the Billboard 200 charts for the second week in a row, beating Sara Bareilles‘ The Blessed Unrest, which sold 68,000 copies domestically. [via MTV]
In third place is children’s album Kidz Bop 24 – the 24th edition of child-friendly covers of pop songs like Taylor Swift‘s “I Knew You Were Trouble,” Selena Gomez‘s “Come & Get It” and Justin Timberlake‘s “Mirrors.”
Despite being on top of the charts, Magna Carta‘s second week performance (129,000 copies) is a 76 percent drop from its official debut week. The 658,000 copies Hova has sold so far does not include the units distributed by Samsung and its nifty app days before the album hit stores and iTunes.
Jay Z and JT recently kicked off their Legends of the Summer stadium tour. The duo is scheduled to play in San Francisco on Friday, before dropping by Pasadena, Calif. and Vancouver, Canada to wrap the month. August dates include stops in Detroit, Boston and Philadelphia.
