Bob Dylan Look-Alikes, Hippies Turn Out for Mark Ronson Video Shoot

August 15, 2007 1:12 PM ET

Yesterday, the video for Mark Ronson's remix of Bob Dylan's "Most Likely You'll Go Your Way (And I'll Go Mine)" was filmed at Williamsburg, Brooklyn's Art and Historical Center. Casting agents had placed an ad on Craigslist last week asking for willing extras, and those who showed up weren't disappointed: The elaborate shoot involved a few Bob Dylan look-alikes, a crashed motorcycle, a hoard of camped out hippies, the Dap-Kings, a Seventies-disco club (and according to some reports, breakdancers and a gospel choir). The clip is being directed by Rupert Jones, who's helmed videos for the Streets and Gomez in the past, written storylines for an Indian soap opera and made a few short films, including last year's The Sickie. Ronson wasn't able to attend the Brooklyn part of the shoot (his segments are being filmed later this week in London), but Wyclef Jean was expected last night on the Brooklyn set to shoot his cameo.

The Commodores | 1984

The year after soul legends Marvin Gaye and Jackie Wilson died, songwriter Dennis Lambert asked members of the Commodores to give him a tape of ideas. "And the one from Walter Orange has this wonderful bass line," said co-writer Franne Golde. "Plus the lyric, 'Marvin, he was a friend of mine' ... Within 10 minutes, we had decided it should be something like a modern R&B version of 'Rock 'n' Roll Heaven,' and I just said, 'Nightshift.'" This tribute to the recently deceased musicians was the band's only hit without Lionel Richie, who had left for a solo career.
