Take a classic Mumford and Sons hit like 'Hopeless Wanderer' and allow comedy actors Jason Bateman, Ed Helms, Will Forte and Jason Sudeikis to act in the music video and you have one hilariously over dramatic performance.

Dressed much the same way we would expect the Mumford and Sons band members to dress, with a little extra facial hair, the guys truly get into character. Going over the top with their acting and pretending to play banjos and accordions, they let their emotions towards the song express themselves through passionate embraces and tears of joy.

Showing that they don't take themselves too seriously, the band members of Mumford and Sons got their hit 'Hopeless Wanderer' around five million views on YouTube in under two weeks with this viral music video. Stats for Mirthfully Melodramatic Music Videos Trending: Older & Chilly
