Watch Bob Dylan’s “Duquesne Whistle” Video


When Bob Dylan teamed with director Nash Edgerton in 2009 for the surreal, madcap Christmas video “It Must Be Santa,” he knew he had found a kindred spirit.

Edgerton, who also shot the clip for “Beyond Here Lies Nothin'”, gets behind the lens for the video for “Duquesne Whistle,” the five-minute-plus first single off Dylan’s upcoming album Tempest. In his previous life, Edgerton was a stunt coordinator for The Matrix and played Ewan McGregor’s body double in the Star Wars prequels.

The video, much like “Beyond Here Lies Nothin’,” takes a dark, Tarantino-esque turn, and features a cameo by the 71 year old Dylan leading a bizarro street gang. Watch it below.
