Have you ever flipped through your TV channels and thought, "I wonder what Drew Carey or Rick Harrison from Pawn Stars would look like singing one of the greatest songs ever made." I can't say I ever have done that, but after looking at Bob Dylan's newest groundbreaking venture, I'm glad I at least know what that now looks like.

Bob Dylan has always been on the cutting edge. He's managed to stay relevant for the last five decades based not only on his genius songwriting, but also the his ability to reinvent himself as the times... well, change (pun intended). Whether it was putting down his acoustic guitar and picking up an electric one, or even making a Gospel or Christmas album, he's morphed multiple times into a different kind of musician, but still managed to keep his signature spin on it.

So how does a man take a song nearly fifty years old, and add a modern take to it? No, he doesn't team up with whatever current "musician" is on the top of the charts with their latest take on girls in short shorts and boots that may or may not have fur, and remixes it. He simply incorporates what we all know and love: Television. But in his own Bob Dylan way. A way that maybe makes you think a little bit, while at the same cracking a smile and being completely numb and unaware that you are really just staring at a screen.  

Dylan has taken his 1965 classic, "Like A Rolling Stone," a song written in a time before music videos, and has the characters on your screen lip-syncing the entire thing! However, it's not as simple as that. This video is completely interactive. As you change the channels, no matter what channel you change it to during the song, it all stays in sync, and you are serenaded by the likes of Drew Carey and the audience on The Price Is Right, Steve Levy on a sports channel, kids cartoon characters, or the guys from Pawn Stars. There are 16 channels, each finds the characters perfectly in time, singing the Dylan classic, while going about their business.

Now, I'll grant you, I'm sure Bob had little to do with actually making the video, other than signing off on it. But I have to say, any idea Bob Dylan this is a good one, probably is. And he's hit the mark again.

The now "official" video was created by the digital agency Interlude and coincides with Dylan's recently released box set The Complete Album Collection Volume 1, which as you might guess, contains all of his 41 official albums and will run you somewhere in the neighborhood of $200. 

I wish there was a way that we could post the video on our site, but the good people at Interlude understandably want the views for themselves, so if you'd like to see the video, check it out here: http://video.bobdylan.com/desktop.html
