It starts out the same: woodsy, sun-drenched setting, a quartet of well-dressed, handsome young crooners singing a twangy tune. It's a Mumford & Sons video! But the band looks different this time around. Why, it's not the band at all! They've been body-snatched by comedy lords Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis, Will Forte and Ed Helms! So goes the latest clip from the English folk outfit, for the tune "Hopeless Wanderer," directed by Sam Jones of Black Dog Films. Their four doppelgangers throw a taste of good old American laughs into the blokes' repertoire, and somehow, makes the music feel fresher too.
