Pop culture obsessives writing for the pop culture obsessed.

There’s a new Mumford & Sons video out that should squelch the notion that the band is made up of a bunch of overly earnest and humorless hacks. In the new clip for “Hopeless Wanderer,” Ed Helms, Jason Sudeikis, Jason Bateman, and Will Forte play Mumford and his Sons. Clad in the requisite vests and suspenders, the stand-ins walk country roads carrying drums on their backs and rock a straw-covered barn so hard that they break down crying. It’s absolutely hilarious, and well-worth more than one watch, just to catch each weird little intricacy. Plus, if the Mumford crew approved this idea, leant the guys appropriate clothes, and then okayed the video, they have to be good sports, right?

Mumford & Sons latest record, Babel, is out now.
