Bob Dylan goes interactive for “Like a Rolling Stone” video

Bob Dylan’s new video for “Like a Rolling Stone” will have you flipping through 16 fictional television stations just like a… well, you know.

Bob DylanLady Gaga, Katy Perry and Miley Cyrus could all take a hint from Bob Dylan.

While those ladies are releasing lyric videos, fan videos and official videos all before the song has even been released, Bob Dylan waited almost 50 years to release a video for his song “Like a Rolling Stone.”

But the wait was worth it.

The interactive video consists of 16 different television stations which are available for you to “flip” to at any point during the song.

Stations range from TTC which features a reality show titled Bachelor’s Roses to a cooking network, a financial news network, a shopping network and, of course, Music 1 Classics which features a much younger Dylan performing the 1965 hit.

But Dylan’s is not the only famous face you’ll see while flipping through the channels. See if you can spot HGTV’s Property Brothers, Drew Carey and the guys from Pawn Stars. We think we saw a Duck Dynasty cast member in there too.

Columbia/Legacy Recordings hired digital agency Interlude to create the interactive video. The company plans on adding new and different channels to keep it fresh.

Interlude CEO Yoni Bloch explains, “You’ll always miss something because you can’t watch everything at the same time.”
