Mumford & Sons 'Hopeless Wanderer'


Band's self-mockery directed by Black Dog Films' Sam Jones

Mumford & Sons 'Hopeless Wanderer'

Mumford & Sons step aside for a little self-mockery in their most recent video release “Hopeless Wanderer” from director Sam Jones.  The clip opens with strategically misleading shots of what we presume to be the quartet performing in a pastoral field, before the camera slowly reveals comedians Jason Sudekis, Ed Helms, Will Forte and Jason Bateman standing in for the English folk-rockers. 


A slapstick impersonation unfolds satirizing everything from Mumford & Sons’ signature Dust Bowl aesthetic to their passionate, multi-instrumental playing style. The Black Dog director pulls no punches with comedy’s finest whose over-the-top antics include a rowboat serenade, a four-way cry-fest, bearded make-outs, and a rollicking banjo solo. The light-hearted video proves that however old-fashioned the Englishmen may be in style, Mumford & Sons is game for a taste of modern American comedy.
