The First-Ever Official Video for ‘Like a Rolling Stone’ Is an Interactive Masterpiece

Agus Echague

Nearly 50 years after its release, Bob Dylan’s classic “Like a Rolling Stone” has finally got an official music video, and it’s pretty awesome: an interactive video that lets the viewer flip through channels on a virtual television and watch such luminaries as Drew Carey on The Price Is Right, Marc Maron on his WTF podcast, and the dudes from Pawn Stars lip-syncing to the 1965 recording of the song.

    Mind blown. Woah, this is really cool. But how did this make this? Did they create 16 different music videos?

    Love so much about this, including how it makes the song seem even more timeless. Long live Bob Dylan!

        Really cool experiment. Interesting variety of media they chose from. Wondering why they added reality TV in there. I love the news anchor, Drew Carey, History Channel, and Marc Maron bec it seems to fit- but the others are weird. Love the idea though. Reminds me of the interaction Arcade Fire had in their suburbs video- but their video was a little more personal I think bec users got to plug in their info: http://www.good.is/posts/video-spike-jonze-directs-new-arcade-fire-video

          I think they added reality TV so that it could certainly feel like you are zapping through all tv channels. ;)
          It's amazing the growth of interactive music videos in the last couple of years. Arcade Fire are mostdef leading the charge.
          If you happen to be in Melbourne before March 2014, I SUPER recommend this exhibition @ ACMI: http://www.acmi.net.au/spectacle
          One of the sections is "interactive videos" and they explore many examples. Uber awesome.
