Mumford & Sons have a laugh at their own expense in their new Hopeless Wanderer video that has the bearded, banjo-playing band being portrayed by funnymen Ed Helms (The Hangover, The Office), Jason Bateman (Arrested Development), Jason Sudeikis (Horrible Bosses, Saturday Night Live) and Will Forte (Saturday Night Live).
The video begins with shots that resemble Mumford & Sons members, but it's not revealed until a minute into the video that it's not the band at all. The musicians tweeted:
