If Mumford & Sons' brand of homespun earnestness is too much for you, you're not alone: It's apparently too much for the band, who parodied themselves (with a little help from professionals) in the new video for "Hopeless Wanderer," which was totally shot at Schrute Farms.

Jason Sudeikis and Jason Bateman Star in Mumford & Sons Parody

Originally posted 08/05/2013 03:00PM

At first glance it looks like just another Mumford & Sons video – outdoor setting, blinding sunlight, rustic barn, earnest expressions and enthusiastic musicianship – but as you get a couple of seconds into the band's new video, "Hopeless Wanderer," you realize that's not actually the English quartet at all.

Jason Sudeikis, Ed Helms, Jason Bateman and Will Forte have stepped into the band's shoes and the result is comedy gold. There is so much to enjoy here: Forte's beard, Bateman's lip-syncing, Sudeikis' "intimate" singing technique – the video is definitely worth watching more than once.

It also shows just how down-to-earth Marcus Mumford and his pals are, as not every group would be willing to poke fun at themselves like this.

Before taking the stage Sunday, Dwane told the BBC that providing the final performance at this year's Glastonbury music festival had been dominating his thoughts.

"The last few weeks have been a bit weird and we had to cancel a couple of shows at the end of our last U.S. tour," he said backstage.

"The scans revealed a blood clot on the surface of his brain that requires an operation. Ted is receiving excellent care and we are being assured that he will recover quickly from surgery."
