Follow The Adventures Of A Cardboard Cutout Bob Dylan On Instagram - #BobDylan

It's alright ma, it's only a cardboard cutout of Bob Dylan circa the 1980s. And look! He's touring all his old hotspots. There he is in Woodstock! And there he is in Greenwich Village! And there he is in Newport!

Meet Flat Bobby who's been brought to life by a Dylan fan who goes by the initials FB and has taken to touring 2D Dylan around various places, taking photos, and uploading them to Instagram so fans can revel in the in-joke lyric references and marvel at his adventures.

The cutout was taken (with permission) from a record release show at the Music Hall of Williamsburg for tribute album Bob Dylan in the 80s, which showcases his hits from that era (there needs to be a whole museum show dedicated to his wardrobe from that time too).

The person behind it told Mashable, "The whole thing is an absurd and ridiculous bit of whimsy, but it’s gotten such a good response from people for that reason—and because so many people love Dylan. And hopefully, Flatbobby will help sell a few more Dylan in the 80s records, which benefits a good cause.

And who knows, maybe it will help people rediscover some great Dylan songs that they had passed over."

Oh mercy.

It's not just users, cheaters, and six-time losers hangin' around the theaters - especially this one for the next week. #bobdylan #nyc #beacontheatre @80sdylan #80sdylan #subterraneanhomesickblues #beacontheater

Went into the city, into the town, into the land of the midnight sun.

Had a great #cincodemayo - and enjoyed discussing tales of Yankee power with this kind Señor. #bobdylan #greenwichvillage #nyc #mariachi #80sdylan

Loved her set - including her cover of @felicebrothers Dallas. Might have to sneak into Newport Blues Cafe tonight. #bobdylan #80sdylan #newportfolkfestival #newportfolkfest #deertick #summeroffuv @honesttea

My first apt in #NYC - a cold water flat two floors above Bruno's Spaghetti Shop, which was a good red sauce joint. Now it's just saucy. #bobdylan #greenwichvillage #positivelyfourthstreet #80sdylan

When I first arrived in NYC in '61 I took the subway here and got hired to play harmonica for a dollar a day by the owner, uncle of #davidleeroth. Met #DaveVanRonk, mayor of MacDougal St, here. #jimihendrix and other greats played the joint too. #bobdylan #80sdylan #cafewha #greenwichvillage @80sdylan
