Mumford & Sons Parody Blink-182's 'Brohemian Rhapsody': Watch

Mumford & Sons have swapped their banjos and debonair looks for some pop-punk silliness in a new video that sees the band impersonate Blink-182

The London quartet parodies Blink's boyish southern California style—we're talking spiky hair, sun glasses, tube socks and a hot pink bass guitar—and pretends to play their new song "Brohemian Rhapsody." Watch the clip above. 

At the end of the short video, Blink-182 walks in to find Marcus Mumford and company pantomime-shredding to their music. Mark Hoppus voices some malcontented surprise, while Travis Barker and Matt Skiba cast some mean glares. 

Blink-182's first record in five years, Californiareleased last week. It's their first without founding guitarist Tom DeLonge, but the band seems to be doing ok in his absence, given that they recently played Good Morning America. Whether or not Blink's next project is putting on some designer jeans to record a cover of "I Will Wait," is still a possibility.
