Nov. 19 (UPI) -- Bob Dylan debuted "Like a Rolling Stone," often considered one of the greatest songs of all time, back in 1965. But it's about to get its first music video -- 2013 style.

To coincide with the release of the enigmatic artist's 47-CD box set, The Complete Album Collection Volume 1, Dylan's record company worked with Interlude to create an interactive music video that simulates channel surfing.

"I'm using the medium of television to look back right at us -- you're flipping yourself to death with switching channels [in real life]," video director Vania Heymann told Mashable.

Viewers can use the buttons on the side of the screen to surf 16 channels on which hosts and actors sing "Like a Rolling Stone" in real time. You'll recognize a number of personalities who appear in the video, including Price Is Right host Drew Carey, podcasting comedian Marc Maron and even HGTV's Property Brothers.

You can watch a sample of the video below, or visit Bob Dylan's website for the full interactive experience.
