The Amazing Video for Bob Dylan's "Like a Rolling Stone"
« on: November 21, 2013, 03:57:27 AM »
A very cool video to Bob Dylan's famous song "Like a Rolling Stone":

Quote
One of the best music videos of 2013 belongs to a 48-year-old song. The interactive video for Bob Dylan's "Like a Rolling Stone," released yesterday, is a tour de force: as the music plays, you can flip between sixteen channels of simulated TV programming. But whether you're watching a financial news update, a romantic comedy, or a tennis tournament, it looks authentic except that everyone seems to be lip-synching the lyrics of the song.

Brilliant!
Sometimes very funny - from what I've seen: I was laughing out loud at the house viewing for one.

Can anyone think of any other music video of any kind, where people were lip syncing the song but in a context where the words had no relation to the activity they were engaged in, like this video does?

It's quite an interesting mental experience.  The people are basically doing what they normally do, with their normal facial expressions, body language, and affect, but are mouthing words that have nothing to do with that.

Can't think of another video but my wife and I have conversations very much in this manner... almost every day!
 
You're not surprised, you say?

Not very interactive. I just got a screen that said Interlude with a box spinning in circles. Nothing else happened.

Oh....can't stand the pain...to be stuck inside a browser with the timeout blues again. :'(

No joy I'm afraid. :huh: Think I'll wait a day or two for the feeding frenzy to subside. 8)

Damn, that was cool. But it kept locking up when I tried to go full screen. Full screen - for those who go hunting for it - is the tiny bottom left button that is about half the size of a flea's asshole.


...And the wife is bummed because it wasn't Positively 4th Street.

^Understandable. I would have preferred they did Tangled Up in Blue or Everybody Must Get Stoned myself.

well, the road has been cleared; no delay when I visited it today.

The very concept of this video really is "amazing".  :up:

I'm not impressed. It's just a bunch of videos playing simultaneously that you can switch between at your leisure. Not at all mind-blowing and amazing as it was made out to be in the months previous, IMO.
