The new Mumford & Sons video reached over 1.2 million views in just two days.
The video was released on Sunday, and it's great proof that British band, Mumford & Sons, have a good sense of humor. Instead of being cast in their own music video, the band chose to be absent from it. Even more, they were replaced by a group of famous Hollywood comedians, who lip-sync and fool around through the whole thing: Ed Helms, Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis and Will Forte. The setting is a farm and a barn, and the actors are playing rednecks. They've got everything they need, from facial hair to banjos. Jason Sudeikis even wears a pair of Ray Ban Clubmasters, which quickly make him the coolest guy in the 'band'. Later on in the video, him and Forte share a moment… but better see for yourselves:

'Hopeless Wonderer' is part of the Grammy-winning record, Babel, which Mumford & Sons released last September. The album debuted at number one in the UK and US, and has gained great critical acclaim. The band already sold out the tickets for their Norfolk County Fairgrounds performance on August 23rd and 24th, and same for the next few gigs. You can, however, catch them live on August 29th in Burgettstown, PA and on September 2nd in Noblesville, IN.
