Bob Dylan's 1965 classic "Like a Rolling Stone," which Rolling Stone named the greatest song of all time, finally has an official video. Created by the digital agency Interlude, the video is interactive, allowing viewers to flip through 16 television channels as a variety of television personalities lip-sync the lyrics. Check it out below.
"I'm using the medium of television to look back right at us," director Vania Heymann told Mashable. "You're flipping yourself to death with switching channels [in real life]." Adds Interlude CEO Yoni Bloch: "You'll always miss something because you can't watch everything at the same time."
The stations you can flip through include a cooking show, The Price Is Right, Pawn Stars, local news, a tennis match, a children's cartoon, BBC News and a live video of Dylan and the Hawks playing "Like a Rolling Stone" in 1966.
Dylan is currently in the middle of an extensive European tour, which wraps up later this month with a three-night stand at the Royal Albert Hall in London. It will be his first time at the historic venue since the final show of his 1966 tour, which marked his last performance before the motorcycle crash that ultimately kept him off the road for eight years.
He recently released the massive box set The Complete Album Collection Volume 1. It contains his 35 official albums, including 14 that weren't previously remastered. There are also six live albums and two CDs of rare material.
