Bob Dylan has taken on another endorsement deal to supplement his Social Security. In addition to shilling for Victoria’s Secret and iPod, he’s going to convince Boomers that they really should drive a big honkin’ GLV – Gas Guzzling Luxury Vehicle.
the music legend, sporting a cowboy hat and shades, steers a black 2008 Escalade across California’s Antelope Valley before stepping out to survey the desert landscape.
I wonder which song lyrics convinced GM that he would be a good spokeperson.
- Buy me a flute/And a gun that shoots
Tailgates and substitutes/Strap yourself
To the tree with roots/You ain’t goin’ nowhere
- But I would not feel so all alone,
Everybody must get stoned.
- How many roads must a man walk down
Before you call him a man?
- Your old road is
Please get out of the new one
If you can’t lend your hand
For the times they are a-changin’.
- Though you might hear laughin’, spinnin’, swingin’ madly across the sun,
It’s not aimed at anyone, it’s just escapin’ on the run.
- No, no, no, it ain’t me, babe,
It ain’t me you’re lookin’ for, babe.
Oh, maybe it was this one…
On 2001’s Summer Days, Bob Dylan sang, “I’m drivin’ in the flats in a Cadillac car,”
Can’t blame Dylan, if “the Man” is stupid enough to ignore a career of anti-establishment protest because Dylan mentioned their brand once why not take the dough?
