That's pretty keen, even if all I did was copy and paste the Meow Mix jingle.

It never fails to blow my mind that Dylan was only 24 years old when he wrote that song and filmed that clip, and it's even more bizarre because he looks like he's about twelve.

How cool is it where you see Allen Ginsberg shuffling away at the end?

See, I was thinking it was going to be something more like this.

Obligatory: Bob.

There, that's out of the way.

And a girl. I remember how the dainty elegance with which he drops the last card and steps over the pile weirded me out the first time I watched the vid.

I hope this doesn't get too popular. I'm working on a Powerpoint version of Subterranean Homesick Blues for the next 'I want to be Bob Dylan' contest here.

Yeah, well, I wish I were someone just a little more funky.

So why did he make a video anyways? What did they do with it? Show it in smoky village bars?

Here's one I made earlier. I think.

It appears in D.A. Pennebaker's Don't Look Back. I think it might have been made for that, though i can't swear that it didn't exist before hand.

Ahh, Dylan has gone viral. Man, and people thought going electric was bad...

When everybody loves you, that's just about as funky as you can be.

Although I thought it might be bad form to share our own here, I can point to The Stephen Colbert "On Notice" Sign Generator thread as precedent that it's probably okay.

So here, dammit.

What is the opposite of favoriting a comment?

Almost.

The last card should've said, "wendell."

Anybody know how to figure out the embed code without 'sending them some personal information'?
