Look closely at the video by Mumford & Sons above, and you may realize that something is a bit off -- namely that those aren't the band members.

For Mumford's latest video for "Hopeless Wanderer" off the 2012 hit album "Babel," the band decided to have a little fun by having "SNL" and "Arrested Development" stars play themselves. Jason Sudeikis, Jason Bateman, Ed Helms and Will Forte believably (kinda, sorta) play the country foursome that includes Marcus Mumford (played here by Sudeikis), Ted Dwane (Forte), Winston Marshall (Bateman) and Ben Lovett (Helms).

They're actually quite convincing (again, kinda, sorta) as the band with perfect outfits and dance moves, and thanks to long shots and strategically placed sun halos you can (kinda, sorta) hardly tell the difference -- that is until Sudeikis begins shewing sensuously on Forte's fake beard, and the comedians launch into a banjo and guitar-smashing throw-down and basically completely and hilariously go off the rails.

Nonetheless, the fact that members of the Grammy-winning group can poke a little fun at themselves -- despite having had a rather heavy year with Dwane's illness -- makes them all the more appealing.

Check out the hysterical video above and tell us what you think.
