Mumford & Sons can clearly take a joke.

The award-winning indie folk band enlisted the help of Hollywood funnymen Jason Sudeikis, Jason Bateman, Will Forte and Ed Helms to lampoon them in their latest music video, for "Hopeless Wanderer."

Sudeikis is frontman Marcus Mumford, Bateman acts as banjoist Winston Marshall, Forte is bassist Ted Dwane, and Helms appears as Ben Lovett on the piano.

The parody features all of the trappings of a Mumford & Sons video, including old-timey suspenders, exposed light bulbs, fields of grass, barns, worn-out leather boots and a lot of facial hair -- as well as an unexpected kiss between Sudeikis and Forte.
