Videos by American Songwriter
Music and comedy often intersect, a topic we explored in our special comedy issue with Jimmy Fallon, Tenacious D, Dan Bern and many others. In “Hopeless Wanderer,” the latest video from Mumford & Sons, comedians Jason Bateman, Ed Helms, Will Forte and Jason Sudeikis portray the role of the highly popular British folk band. It’s as if the band wanted you to know that they’re aware of all the Mumford & Sons parodies, and they have a sense of humor about them.
Maybe Marcus Mumford can get up and do stand-up some time. Until then, there’s this video, which has racked up over a million views in two days.
