Famous Funny People Manage to Almost Make Mumford and Sons Tolerable

Posted By on Mon, Aug 5, 2013 at 12:00 PM

I will admit upfront that I never really gave Mumford and Sons a chance. The first three songs I heard by them all sounded the same to me, all the people I know from my more evangelical-Christianish days couldn't stop talking about how great they were, and I felt like the Avett Brothers did the same sort of take on Americana, but better.

So, I'm not a fan. However, throw Jason Bateman, Will Forte, Ed Helms and Jason Sudeikis in anything and I'll watch, so for this moment, and this moment only, I will admit a temporary appreciation for Mumford and Sons and their deep sincerity, thanks to the above video for "Hopeless Wanderer."
