Did I just see Bob Dylan in a Pepsi commercial?

I've got the superbowl on while I'm grading papers. I stop and watch the commercials and grade during the game.

The pepsi commercial was clever and entertaining, but
How does it feel, to see Bob Dylan selling Pepsi? Hmmmmm.....


  1. The times they are a-changin'. What used to be considered "selling out" is no longer. More ears are exposed to music via TV (including ads), the internet, and video games than previous methods like radio, record stores and clubs. Playing truncated versions of songs during halftime at the superbowl used to be frowned upon, now the Boss sought out that gig and played a short version of "Born to Run". Who would have imagined Bruce agreeing to skipping the 2nd verse of that classic anthem 20 years ago? The times they are a-changin', indeed. Or are we just getting too old to care?

  2. Well, hey...I have a sincere appreciation for Bob Dylan, and diet Pepsi. Maybe I should just roll with it. How many ads will it take until I'm numb? The answer my friends...
