The latest music video from Mumford & Sons is pretty awesome if you ask me. In the music video for the song “Hopeless Wanderer”, you see four popular comedians playing the roles of the Mumford & Sons band members. Jason Bateman, Will Forte, Ed Helms and Jason Sudeikis are transported to a dusty barn and wear farm clothing while playing in this old barn. You also notice that the comedians are adoring facial hair, classic clothing, and instruments from the prairie house. At first, its hard to recognize these four popular comedians, but as the video goes on, you can tell that this is not a normal Mumford & Sons video!
I give Mumford & Sons credit for mixing up their music videos. Substituting comedians for the real band members was genius! Give yourself five minutes and enjoy this music video, you will like it!
