Bob Dylan’s music video for “Must Be Santa” is precisely why he is my favorite Jew this side of Jesus. (See the video HERE)
Dylan is decked out in a ridiculous blond wig, at times a Santa hat and is throwing one ridiculously rowdy holiday par-tay in this video.
Plus he DANCES. Yes ladies and gentlemen, Bob Dylan dances…the Hora no less.
This video just proves to me that despite his success and despite the fact that Dylan is touted as some serious prophetic, political poet more often than not he doesn’t take himself too seriously. He can still have fun, make people smile and just be caught up in the spirit of the holiday season.
Rolling Stone described the video in their “Hot List” in their latest issue (Dec. 10): “The chandelier-swinging house party depicted in this clip (complete with Bob in a blond wig) is the wildest yuletide soiree since Bowie and Bing hit the club after cutting ‘Little Drummer Boy.'”
I couldn’t agree more.
