If you’ve got a large group of friends, some spoons, a washboard and an iPhone, you could be well on your way to starting your own Mumford Band – at least according to the latest addition to Barely Political’s Key of Awesome series.
The music video, featured on YouTube’s first ever Comedy Week, parodies the popular banjo-strumming, foot-stomping, Grammy-award-winning band Mumford & Sons, in all of their “bordering on weird and Amish” glory. The lead singer urges his audience to pack their bags for a trip to Mumford Land, which apparently is located, “somewhere between Limerick and Williamsburg, Brooklyn.”
YouTube’s Comedy Week, which runs from May 19-25, includes both video premieres and live events and features some of the nation’s most celebrated stand-up comedians and comedy shows.
So grab your guitar and get ready to “party like it’s 1899,” and don’t forget to use Instagram to capture the entire Mumford experience — with the “toaster” filter, of course.
