I have a really special treat for you today, by way of the Open Culture blog…
Earlier today, we told you all about Bob Dylan’s controversial Victoria’s Secret commercial shot in 2004 — the first commercial in which the musician ever appeared on screen. Tonight, we leave you with this — Dylan’s newly-released video for his 1965 hit “Like a Rolling Stone.” As you’ll see, it’s not just a video. It’s an interactive video that lets “viewers flip through 16 television channels as a variety of television personalities lip-sync the lyrics.” … The new video coincides with the release of Bob Dylan: The Complete Album Collection Vol. 1, a CD box set that contains “35 studio titles, 6 live albums, 2-CD ‘Side Tracks,’ and a hardcover book featuring new album-by-album liner notes.”
With a little experimentation, and a lot of just plain luck, I’ve managed to figure out how to embed this unique video here for you to enjoy. Note that it randomly selects one of the 16 channels when you start it, but the design is so cool that you can jump from channel to channel without missing a beat! 😀
