I don’t know if this connection is common knowledge, but I was recently reading the transcript of a 1965 Dylan press conference (something I do), and during the conference, someone asks Dylan, “If you were to sell out to commercial interests, which one would you choose?”
He quips, “Ladies garments.”
Fast forward 30+ years, andÂ Dylan actually does it, appearing in a commercial for Victoria’s Secret. I remember thinking at the time what a bizarre and weird move that was. Now, knowing that it was perhaps all an elaborate inside joke, it’s pretty hilarious.
Of course someone has made a youtube video putting the two clips together, so here you go.
