Bob Dylan’s “Like a Rolling Stone” is, without hyperbole, one of the best rock songs ever recorded. And this music video is, again without hyperbole, one of the most impressive I’ve seen.

The video has 16 channels—with plans for more, Mashable reports. You can toggle between them as the song progresses, and on each one, you’ll find people mouthing the words to the Dylan classic. There’s Steve Levy on SportsCenter singing along. There’s Marc Maron berating some poor podcast guest with Dylan’s lyrics. Drew Carey lip syncs on the set of The Price Is Right. And so on.


The video was created by Interlude and directed by young YouTube sensation Vania Heymann. Its premiere is timed with the release of The Complete Album Collection, Vol. 1, a massive new Dylan box set. Enjoy.
