VIDEO: Mumford and Sons – Hopeless Wanderer



When you’ve already got a Grammy for Album of the Year, you can afford to let loose and play a good ol’ joke on everyone – at least that’s the case for Brit folk rockers, Mumford and Sons. Receiving a slew of recent successes which also include headlining Glastonbury, having the biggest debut in 2012, and winning a Brit Award for Best British Group, the group’s camp premiered their latest music video for “Hopeless Wanderer” last Sunday.

The band posted a photo on their Facebook page to thank director Sam Jones and acknowledged the “cast of young budding actors” to tease their fans. Turns out, they cast comedy staples Jason Sudeikis and Will Forte (Saturday Night Live), Jason Bateman (Arrested Development) and Ed Helms (The Hangover films) instead to play the band members’ parts.

In true Mumford fashion, the band’s music videos are mostly of two things: stadium-esque footage of their shows (“Roll Away Your Stone“, “I Will Wait“, “Whispers in the Dark“) or the standard boys-playing-folksy-instruments in an interesting facade or outdoorsy area (“Little Lion Man“, “Winter Winds“, “The Cave” and “Babel“). “Hopeless Wanderer” takes a different route by being a hilarious music video that parodies the band and its stereotype – a clear proof that Marcus, Ben, Winston and Ted are taking themselves (and their haters) not too seriously.
