You’ve got to see this music video

Unfortunately, I can’t figure out how to embed this on a WordPress page, but here’s what you have to know.

It’s the official music video from Bob Dylan for “Like a Rolling Stone.” Yeah, I know, the song’s almost 50 years old. But this video is new and is an amazing interactive experience.

You’re sent to a television screen, complete with multiple channels. Flip the channels, and everyone is lip syncing the song. On ESPN, on the History Channel, on “The Price is Right,” in movies. On a Food Channel. There’s even a channel with a young Bob Dylan.

Or you can watch the whole thing on one channel.

It is definitely one of the most amazing things you’re every going to see on the Internet.

Grand Rapids bakes a pie

I know absolutely nothing about Grand Rapids, Mich., but how do you get a whole city to shut down and a major chunk of the population to film a continual music video?

That’s just remarkable.

(I saw Don McLean perform this in a solo acoustic show but it’s been so long, I can’t remember where or when. It was either about 30 years ago in Florida or about 25  years ago in Kentucky. But it sounded exactly like this, complete with the audience singalong. I can’t believe “American Pie” is 40 years old. And I can’t believe I’m so old that I’m now reminiscing about things that happened 30 years ago.)
