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.

“Money For Nothing”

Dire Straits | 1984

Mark Knopfler wrote this song with Sting, and it wasn’t without controversy. The Dire Straits frontman's original lyric used the word “faggot” to describe a singer who got their “money for nothing and their chicks for free.” Even though the slur was edited out in many versions, the band, and Knopfler, still took plenty of criticism for the term. “I got an objection from the editor of a gay newspaper in London--he actually said it was below the belt,” Knopfler told Rolling Stone. Still, "Money For Nothing," undoubtedly augmented by its innovative early computer-animated video, stayed at Number One for three weeks.
