The First-Ever Official Video for 'Like a Rolling Stone' Is an Interactive Masterpiece | Underwire | Wired.com -
MINDS OFFICIALLY BLOWN. Bob Dylan’s “Like a Rolling Stone” gets a music video. And it’s INTERACTIVE. Give it a watch!
Nearly 50 years after its release, Bob Dylan’s classic “Like a Rolling Stone” has finally got an official music video, and it’s pretty much the best thing ever: an interactive video that lets the viewer flip through channels on a virtual television and watch such luminaries as Drew Carey on The Price Is Right, Marc Maron on his WTF podcast, and the dudes from Pawn Stars lip-syncing to the 1965 recording of the song.
The video, which was created by Interlude, is probably the most newfangled thing Dylan has ever done (excepting of course his three-year stint on satellite radio and his recent the Bootleg Series app), is being released alongside The Complete Album Collection Volume 1, a new 47(!)-CD box set that arrives juuuust in time for the holidays. If giant boxes of compact discs aren’t your thing, the collection is “also available as a limited-edition harmonica-shaped USB stick containing all the music, in both MP3 and FLAC lossless formats.” (Of course it’s harmonica-shaped.)
