Watch “Bob Dylan” Cover “Hotline Bling”

UPDATE: I was fooled. This is Jimmy Fallon dressed up as Bob Dylan. My bad.

I’m just going to admit it: “Hotline Bling” is not my thing. It’s a little too chill for me. I didn’t really get the video, and maybe I’m just out of the loop. Can someone explain to me what the draw is? The dancing? The subsequent parody videos? I’m confused.

But, I do appreciate this Bob Dylan cover of “Hotline Bling” on Fallon, first of all because it’s pretty spirited, isn’t it? Also, there’s the fact that it’s Bob Dylan covering Drake. I’m glad Bob Dylan is staying hip. Maybe Drake will do a super-chill cover of “Subterranean Homesick Blues” one of these days and even it all out.
