If Bob Dylan were to make a music video, perhaps this is what he would have in mind.

Dylan’s 1965 classic song, “Like a Rolling Stone,” gets the first official music video treatment with an innovative and interactive video by technology company Interlude.

When you play the video, you can flip through 16 different “TV channels” and see the actors and characters of different “shows” singing the song. Some of the shows range from business news networks, to “The Price is Right,” and “Pawn Stars.” It’s strangely hypnotic in a way. To watch it, go to this link.

The video was created to promote the release of Dylan’s new 47-disc compliation, “The Complete Album Collection, Vol. 1.”
