Bob And B.i.ll

Pepsi's "Forever Young" ad from the Super Bowl is historically off key. Bob Dylan and hip-hop artist trade off singing Dylan's song. The images are of a mid-1960s going-electric-at-Newport Dylan, but "Forever Young" was released in 1974 (on Planet Waves, which he recorded with the Band), and the live version on the commercial's soundtrack sounds like it comes from the late 1970s. Still, great ad.
