My dad walked in on me listening to "Bob", and he asked me why I was listening to Bob Dylan. I laughed. He still had no idea that it wasn't Bob Dylan. It was funny. xD

the video is not much, and does not have much to look at, but it still manages to be awesome! I share the palindromes to my friends all the time :)

The video isn't meant to be much. It's a direct parody of a Dylan video that was essentially the exact same thing...without the Rabbi wandering around in the background.

"Bob" and "Subterranean Homesick Blues" each have three people in them: Al, Jay and Bermuda in "Bob" and Dylan, Ginsberg and Bob Neuwirth in SHB. Bermuda and Ginsberg have the "rabbi" role.
"Weird Al" has a charisma that's all his own. The awkward, the misshapen, the socially inept flock to his banner.

My dad and a few guys I know are always mentioning trucks and whenever they say Toyota I laugh.

All the lyrics in Bob are palindromes...Natasha is actually Ah Satan spelled backwards, and "sees" is spelled the same way forward and backwards.

Yeah, he probably just got it from a palindrome site.
How old was that last signature? I mean, really?
