Tim Heidecker - "Bob Dylan's 'Titanic'"

As you may know, Tim Heidecker (of Tim & Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! fame) sometimes dabbles in soft rock. Without much further ado, here’s Heidecker about his latest, epic project:

Recently, I read that Bob Dylan’s new album Tempest will feature a 14 minute song about the Titanic.

So I wrote this song to see if I could beat the Master to it. I can’t wait to see how close I got to the real thing!

Lyrical sampler:

oh titanic – how could you let us down
oh titanic – you’re lying on the bottom of the water just waiting to be found

The director Cameron on the set of true lies
As the scene played out out he closed his eyes

a vision of his next film was becoming clear
the story of the shipwreck for all to hear.

DeCaprio was cast and Winslet as Well
LIttle did they know the shoot would be hell

Cameron pushed the limits of CGI
all the special effects really defied the eye

And it goes on like this (full transcript here). It should be noted that that section comes after a harmonica solo. Watch the video below.
