Coudal Partners doesn’t just do parodies of the Agency.com Subway video. They do other stuff, like the current Six Degrees of Bob Dylan contest. Every few days, a new celebrity name is added to the contest page. The person who sends in the shortest connection between that celebrity and Bob Dylan wins a copy of his new album, Modern Times. (Today’s question is, “How do you get from
Condoleezza Rice John Ford to Bob Dylan?” Surely there’s a Victoria’s Secret connection in there somewhere. Or not.) Everyone with a correct entry is eligible to win the grand prize: Dylan’s complete Columbia Records discography, 47 discs in all. The contest is sponsored by Columbia Records, StumbleUpon.com, HarpMagazine.com, PerformingSongwriter .com, PopMatters.com, Relix.com and Fanscape.
