Mumford & Sons Decide To Be Blink-182 For A Day In New Video

Mumford Sons

(Radio.com) When indie folk darlings Mumford & Sons want to show off their wild side, they apparently turn to Blink-182 for inspiration. A new video posted on YouTube by Blink-182 shows the English folk band dressed up in a wild array of colors and alt-rock styles while jamming out in Blink's dressing room.

In the brief 45-second video, Blink-182 are set to open for Mumford & Sons during an evening show. But–as they say–while the cat's away, the mouse will play. With Mark Hoppus, Travis Barker and Matt Skiba away doing something else, Mumford & Sons overtake their dressing room and have a rollicking good time pretending to perform "Brohemian Rhapsody."

Things, of course, get awkward once Blink-182 returns and catches everyone red handed. The video's quick edits and zoom-in shots make for an added chuckle. If you're wondering why Mumford & Sons decided to be Blink-182 for a day, it's all an ad for the latter's new album California and to promote their upcoming tour. It just goes to show that beneath every earnest, emotional folk band there's a ranging alt-rock band waiting to get out. Watch here.
