Every once in a while, there is a slew of videos worth watching that surface on the Internet. And every once in that while, I will lasso them up and put them all in one, easy-to-find place. Here are they are:
First, Mumford & Sons released the video for their latest single “Hopeless Wanderer” last week. But instead of the bearded English foursome playing themselves in the video, comedic actors Jason Sudeikis, Jason Bateman, Ed Helms and Will Forte play the band. It’s hysterical.
Sudeikis actually looks like Marcus Mumford. Ed Helms is actually an accomplished banjo player but he looks more like Mumford’s piano player so Bateman played the banjo.
Another Sudeikis appearance took place earlier in the week when the ex-SNL cast member played Ted Lasso, American Football Coach in London, for a promo for NBC Sports. He took over “Tottenham Hotspurs” and struggled to understand the game. He was then fired. The best part is when he equates English teams to American football teams: Manchester United, Dallas Cowboys. Liverpool, Dallas Cowboys.
“How many countries are in this country?”
Next, Peyton, Eli and Archie Manning – in conjunction with DirecTV – have made the greatest football-related rap video since the 1985 Chicago Bears’ “Super Bowl Shuffle.” This is … “Football On Your Phone (F.O.Y.P).”
The next series of videos are taken from late night TV.
Jimmy Fallon plays Egg Russian Roulette with his incoming replacement, Seth Meyers.
Finally, Stephen Colbert was scheduled to have Daft Punk on his show, but the French duo cancelled because MTV claimed exclusivity over the band’s performance. Instead of dwelling on the missed opportunity, Colbert assembled a cavalcade of celebrities and had himself a dance party.
