Big ups to Mumford and Sons because whether you’re a lover or a hater, the new video for ‘Hopeless Wanderer’ is fucking fantastic. The English folk four-piece have taken on the idea of ‘if you can’t beat them, join them’, making a parody style video for the newest release. The band have done their research, enlisting Hollywood A-List comedians to take their placees. Jason Sudeikis takes on the role of  main man Marcus MumfordWill Forte as Ted DwaneEd Helms as Ben Lovett and Jason Bateman as Winston Marshall.

The video features everything that stereotypes a Mumford and Sons video, complete with walking dirt roads, carrying instruments, playing on stage and rustic settings, and it embarrassingly took me longer than it should have to notice that it wasn’t the actual band. I laughed out loud the whole time I was watching because everything about it is over the top, including the passionate man-on-man kissing and ridiculous dance moves.
