Bob Dylan talks to a computer in new IBM advert – watch

Dylan has previously starred in commercials for Apple, Pepsi, Victoria's Secret and more

Bob Dylan has appeared in a new advert for tech company IBM, in which he shares a conversation with a computer.

The advert is to promote the company’s new question-answering system, IBM Watson.

In the clip, the computer tells Dylan what he knows about the musician’s lyrics: “I know that your major themes are that time passes and love fades”, to which Dylan replies: “That sounds about right… Maybe we should write a song together.”

It isn’t the first time Bob Dylan has starred in commercials for Apple, Pepsi, Victoria’s Secret and more. Watch those below.

Meanwhile, the house where Dylan and The Band recorded the sessions that would later become ‘The Basement Tapes’ is now listed for rental.

Dylan relocated to the New York property, nicknamed The Big Pink, after surviving a motorcycle crash in 1966. The musicians recorded music in the basement of the house, which were fully released as a bootleg collection last year.

The house in West Saugerties, New York has now been listed online for $650 (£422) per night. However, the basement is not part of the rental.
