Interactive Bob Dylan Music Video Allows You To Change TV Channels, Watch Every Show Lip-Sync The Song

interactive-like-a-rolling-stone.jpg

This is an interactive music video for Bob Dylan's classic 'Like A Rolling Stone' featuring a little TV set that you can use to change the channel and watch people on all the different programs lip-sync the song. There's Drew Carey on The Price Is Right, Marc Maron doing a podcast, a tennis tournament, a home improvement show, a kid's cartoon, the History Channel, a cooking show, a home shopping channel, some romance movie, Pawn Stars and a couple news channels. It's worth checking out. Unfortunately, there was no softcore p0rn channel like Cinemax. Which, considering my boss walked in halfway through the video, was probably a blessing in disguise.

Keep going for the worthwhile interactive video.

Thanks to SuperTom, who's so super everyone gives him discounts wherever he shops out of respect.

  • I think this is fucking RAAD. I'm very entertained. It's like when you get a song stuck in your head and it feels like everything is going along with the timing of the song. Great idea and great execution. All the channels really look authentic and amazing. I wish there was more awesomeness like this.

    Jesus Christ, Drew Carey is really thin!

    I mean, I know he lost a lot of weight, but I didn't realize it was that much.

    I really like the idea. But I'm not really feeling the accuracy of the lip-syncing. I mean, sure, I know the people in the clips aren't actually saying the words in the lyrics, so the sync is never going to be 100% but I'm a little put off by the fact that the sync is off. I don't know, it's minor. Yeah, I realize that. I feel bad for hatin' on this even a little because it's still pretty cool on the whole.

  • wowemily

    No, dude, they are actually saying the words. This was all shot specifically for this. It isn't the same as footage matching or CGI lips. These squares all got together and made this--all preplanned and coordinated. So if the lip sync is off, then it really is sad because they are trying their best to match it.

  • wowemily

    Sorry folks, but this is dumb. It would be cool if technology was adjusting their lips on the fly, but it isn't. It's all pre-recorded specifically for this video. That's a big "so what".

  • RareAwesomeman

    why don't you go back to your home on whore island?

  • wowemily

    You trendy hipster wannabe using "awesome" in your disqus name. What will you change it to next "EpicMan" or how about "RadicalDude."
    You got a bunch of upvotes from your sheeple, but you would never say that to my face--coward. So why don't you shaddafahkahp now.

  • RareAwesomeman

    haha, what!? are we all getting trolled right now? I think so. Bye crazy lady

  • wowemily

    Yeah, I'm crazy. You don't even know me and you called me a whore because I don't like the same video you like. Ask your mother what she thinks about that. Asshat.

  • I still strongly disagree with your opinion of this video, but I'm with you on this. The whore island thing skipped a couple levels there. Pretty unnecessary.

    Maybe RareAwesomeman means he's rarely an awesome man?

  • wowemily

    People go for gender or appearance when they can't go for something relevant. I still think the video is mainstream shet. Mark Maron shouldn't have gotten involved. He is still so desperate for success and "views" even though he finally has some. Pathetic.
    Oh, and naming yourself Rareawesomeman is neither rare nor awesome. And, come to think of it, it isn't very manly either.
    Thecureforhope is a cool name though.

    Toodles.

  • Captain Matticus, LP Inc.

    I bow to you.

    If you were waiting on getting that "buzzkill" tattoo on your forehead that you've always wanted, I'd say go for it.

  • wowemily

    Sorry your butt is hurt, but anyone with a proper budget and some tech could pull this off. There is no artistry involved. But maybe art doesn't matter to you--only gadgetry and hipster putdowns.
    Oh, and I would get the tattoo, but the shop ran out of ink writing "Ignore Me. I'm a douche." all over your body.

  • Upstate Steve

    you do realize the irony of your statement with the fact that you did not ignore them, right?

  • Colby J Jensen

    Nothing is worse than someone who is negative for the sake of wanting to be different and going against something other people like. Sorry Buzz Killington, but I found this entertaining. Yes anyone with a proper budget and some tech could pull this off, but someone did do it and a lot of people found it to be fun.

  • wowemily

    OK, well, go back to watching Dancing with the Stars with Bill Nye the Science Guy and waiting for your X-Box to arrive or however else you whittle away your time.
    Learn the difference between a reality dose and a buzz kill--you might actually like yourself better when you do.

  • Jessicaissleeping

    Y U SO MAD

  • wowemily

    OK, great. It's amazing. Holy cow. However did they do it? Ha, ha, ha. Dancing with the stars is on. How do they all learn to dance like that? Ha, ha, ha.

  • I think you are completely missing the point actually. I don't think this was meant to be a technological breakthrough. There isn't vast amounts of CGI. It's just a bunch of very well filmed segments with people from real shows singing along to an awesome song. What does it take for you to be entertained?
