Forty-eight years after it was released, Bob Dylan’s “Like A Rolling Stone” finally gets a music video.
The song, which Rolling Stone calls one of the greatest ever, at long last has a music video worthy of its legacy.
The video, which was created by Interlude and directed by young YouTube sensation Vania Heymann, has 16 “channels” — with plans for more, according to Mashable — that viewers can flip through using their keyboards or cursors. Users can watch games shows, shopping networks and reality series while people on each channel are seen lip-syncing the song’s lyrics.
While one channel has footage of old Dylan performances, the video also shows features contemporary figures like rapper Danny Brown, SportsCenter‘s Steve Levy, Property Brothers Jonathan and Drew Scott, Drew Carey lip-syncing on the set of The Price Is Right, and even Marc Maron challenging a podcast guest with Dylan’s lyrics. The ability to switch between channels means that each viewer can have a different experience with the video.
The new video is timed with the release of The Complete Album Collection, Vol. 1, a massive new Dylan 47-CD boxed set, including 35 studio titles and 6 live albums. The box set is also available as a limited-edition harmonica-shaped USB stick containing all the music, in both MP3 and FLAC lossless formats, which sounds like the perfect holiday gift for the Dylan fan who has everything.
