Watch Mumford & Sons’ viral “Hopeless Wanderer” video
Here’s a not-quite-local-but-still-cool music video featuring Ed Helms, Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis and Will Forte standing in as the old-timey folksters.

In an unexpected and sorta brilliant marketing move, Mumford & Sons hired a bunch of comedians to spoof them. "Hopeless Wanderer," from the British band's album Babel, sees Ed Helms, Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis and Will Forte embodying the Grammy-winning folksters with egregious facial hair, an excess of pastoral landscapes, overemotive string-instrument playing and... We won't spoil it for you, but the comedic quartet's parody is totally hilarious.
