How many sell-outs does it take?

How many sell-outs does it take?
: Tonight I see Bob Dylan in a Victoria’s Secret commercial. Huh?

: Joe Territo has a link to the commercial.

    My sister told me about this. I can see no good reason for it. Maybe it proves that, “Bright lights, the Big City went to my baby’s head.” — Jimmy Reed. Or as Bob himself said, “Freedom, just around the corner for you. But with truth so far off, what good would it do?” So, maybe he’s terminally cynical. Or it could be Alzheimer’s. I’m holding out for it being a joke, but it’s not a very good one, if so. Still, Dylan always has been full of surprises.

    Or, maybe it’s just plain smart to be in a commercial with multiple sets of nice knockers.

    Maybe the old man took the gig because he got to hang out with a gorgeous, nearly naked lingerie model. Anything wrong with that? I don’t think so. You can see the ad if you go to http://www.joeterrito.com/blog/archives/000064.html

    Let me ask: would any of you gentlemen turn down an opportunity to hang out all day with some Victoria’s Secrets models?
    And, Jeff, what’s up with the founder of EW calling someone a “sell-out”? Did Dylan take some vow of poverty that I missed? Does doing the commercial sudenly mean he’s going to make some bad music because of it?
    Who’s hurt? Why the name-calling? I don’t get it.

    “Let me ask: would any of you gentlemen turn down an opportunity to hang out all day with some Victoria’s Secrets models?” Gary F.
    Yeah, I would. You are in serious trouble if you lust after these wommikens, esp. in a look-but- don’t-touch environs. Watching the commercial, I was also reminded of an Indian’s observation on the White Man’s strange ascent to Heaven “there to become a creature with wings, half-man and half-bird.” The nymphette with wings was hilarious. Besides, “I like big butts” — Sir Mix a lot.

    So? the LATimess, winner of 5 Pulitzers, had a front page piece (at fabulous length) by some old fart about how great Dylan is and was–nothing but an ad for the ad!
