Video of the Moment #1283: Mumford and Sons

Mumford and Sons have become an all too easy target in the music world. So that’s why the promo video for ‘Hopeless Wanderers’ impresses me all the more. Instead being the band that everyone seems to love to hate right now (which is pretty unfair IMO) in their own music video, Mumford and co. hired impersonators.

Well, some pretty famous stars: Arrested Development/Juno/The Kingdom actor Jason Bateman deputises for Winston Marshall, The Office/The Hangover star Ed Helms plays Ben Lovett, and former Saturday Night Live in-house actor/comedians Jason Sudeikis and Will Forte play Marcus Mumford and Ted Dwane, respectively. This ain’t no ordinary promo video. (One has to wonder if these celebrities have been watching M&S at their high-profile festival performances as of late…) Watch it below.
