Grammy-winning folk-rock band Mumford & Sons added a good dose of comic relief to their latest music video.

Hot off their rockin’ set at Lollapalooza, the “Babel” band premiered the music video for their latest single, “Hopeless Wanderer” on Sunday.

No, your eyes aren’t deceiving you: That is certainly not Marcus Mumford leading the band. The music video features a slightly twisted parallel universe in which funnymen Jason Sudeikis, Jason Bateman, Will Forte and Ed Helms are the musicians behind the video's folksy tune.

The video has the usual ambiance of a typical Mumford & Sons production, with the band members adorning grizzly beards and suspenders while performing against a picturesque barnyard backdrop.

But as expected, the comedy quartet fulfills its role as an ensemble of light-hearted jokers.

Not only do they rock out like the real Mumford & Sons, but they also pepper in their slapstick theatrics by downing a few pints and even getting into a serious banjo throwdown.

The video seems like a fusion of Saturday Night Live satire and The Hangover whackness, but if you squint hard enough, you wouldn't have guessed that these guys aren't the actual members of Mumford & Sons.

The band rescheduled their tour dates after bassist Ted Dwane underwent surgery to remove a blood clot in his brain. You can check the updated tour schedule here.
