Bob Dylan’s ‘Like a Rolling Stone’ Gets First Official Music Video After Almost 50 Years
Bob Dylan wrote the timeless “Like A Rolling Stone” in 1965, and despite its chart-topping success and legendary status, the song of the ’60s never truly given its complete due as a single, until now.
The official music video for “Like A Rolling Stone” premiered today on Bob Dylan’s website, part of the campaign for the release of Dylan’s The Complete Album Collection Volume 1. Although the song is just a little under 50 years old, the music video manages to put the track under a modern light by incorporating interactive components.
Watch the video here.
Viewers can use their arrow keys on the keyboard to flip through 16 television channels featuring actors, reporters, and cartoons lip-syncing to the iconic song. Although the connection between Pawn Stars and a Dora The Explorer rip-off cartoons to Bob Dylan might seem a bit strained, there’s some humor and playfulness flipping between your cliche food and business channel hosts mouthing the lyrics to the song. The music video also includes a channel dedicated to a vintage live performance of Bob Dylan himself.
The Complete Album Collection Vol. 1 features a whopping 41 official CDs and two CDs full of previously unreleased material. The box-set is also available as a collectible harmonica-shaped USB drive.
