These new Victoria's Secret ads are just. . . wrong. In the land of inappropriate, this dwarfs the use of Johnny Cash's "I've Been Everywhere" in lame ads the week following his death.

If you ain't seen 'em, scantilly-clad models cavort (no complaints thus far ;)) to the tune of "Lovesick," one of my all-time favorite Dylan songs (getting a bit weird, but still acceptable). But then Bob himself shows up, not singing, but just standing there! And with the :beard: he's been sporting since Love and Theft almost three years ago, this 60-something dude looks like a plain old sleazy pervert!

I'm going to have nightmares about this! :eek:

To top this off, the store's going to be carrying an exclusive CD of Dylan songs. Old stuff? New stuff? I have no idea. The firewalls here prevent me from checking out the website, and apparently the news media doesn't have or doesn't wish to share the particulars. If anyone knows or can find out easily, please post a track list here. If it's exclusive stuff, I will put on the cruddiest dirty clothes I can find, borrow a Red Man baseball cap, and strut in there to loudly ask in an exaggerated Southern accent, "Yeah, I's here for that there Bob Dylan CD thingy! Ooh, and can I try on one of them thar edible numbers?"

Well, unless it's new songs along the lines of "The Bras They Are A-Changing." :crazed:

Interesting. I don't have all of Dylan's stuff (I was holding out for the ultimately disappointing remasters for the longest), but I only know two of those songs (or at least am only recognizing two). The fact that I know the one not used in the ads leads me to believe that it's all old stuff, which I sorta figured. So I guess I can pass and that saves the employees at the local store the embarrassment. :beard:

Bob Dylan is at the age where he can get away with anything, because of his immortal status. Is what he's doing a little flaky? You bet. If he wants to perform in concert, just wearing one of the bras that he is pushing, and nothing else, let him do so. It is a thrill to still see him performing at his age, when he could be at the retirement home eating gruel and playing bingo. It does defy logic a little bit, but if you look at his life, and especially with his side projects and the movies that he appears in, it isn't that big of a surprise.

Dylan immortal......hell yeah. I mean the guy reads about himslef in history books for crying out loud. He could put on the bra's in the commercial for all I care. he deserves it.

I saw this commercial the other day and was like hey, thats Dylan. I thought it was pretty funny.

Thanks, guys. I'd managed to keep the thought of Bob Dylan actually wearing the lingerie out of my mind. Now that's ruined. I'll never be able to hear "Blowin' in the Wind" the same way again.

LMAO................... :beard: <-------Bob Dylan with the :beard:

the stupid thing is this.......why is dylan actually in the commercial? i could understand them using his song, but actually featuring his image does nothing to help sell the underwear. it's almost like they just took clips of a music video or something.
