48 years after it’s original release, “Like a Rolling Stone” gets a music video
Dylan debuted the first-ever music video for “Like a Rolling Stone” earlier this week, in the form of a groundbreaking interactive video that is giving new life and new meaning to the 48-year-old hit.
The video features 16 television channels, all of which show actors in different genres and circumstances lip-synching to the song. The user has control of the television set an is able to scroll through shows like “The Price is Right”, “Pawn Stars”, “Property Brothers” and “SportsCenter” at their leisure.
This mechanic means that no two views of the video are the same.
"I tried to use the form of TV media to reinterpret the content. The song is timeless and I think the video is trying to prove that in whatever time, or whatever channel or situation [you are in] the song has life and meaning"
- Vania Heymann, video director
