Bob Dylan Makes Silent Thanksgiving Visit With Jimmy Fallon, Leaves Whiskey Traces

As the circus performance ends, Fallon notices that Dylan has vanished, leaving behind only his whiskey glass.
Take a look at the clip above, and here is Seinfeld's opening semi-monologue:
The bit came about 2/3 of the way through the show – after guest Jerry Seinfeld had already surprised the crowd by beginning Fallon's monologue while the usual host was still stuffing his face with Thanksgiving deliciousness (see that clip below). Bob Dylan let his new whiskey do the talking during a pre-taped, unbilled appearance on last night's Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
Dylan is a full partner in Heaven’s Door Spirits, a collection of handcrafted American whiskeys. One of Dylan's partners in the venture, Marc Bushala, has told The New York Times that $35 million was raised from investors to launch the brand.

Without a word of introduction, or a word of anything from either Fallon or Dylan, video showed the two sitting in an otherwise empty theater, a bottle of Heaven's Door whiskey between them, watching the circus performers. Fallon set up the Dylan surprise (watch it above) by telling his audience that he and a guest had recently been invited to a private performance of the Big Apple Circus.

So a high profile but utterly wordless plug for Heaven's Door (named, of course, after Dylan's classic "Knockin' on Heaven's Door") was rather genius on the part of the interview-hating Nobel Prize winner. Promote the booze without saying a word or submitting himself to Fallon's inevitable fawning.

Jesus Jones – Right Here, Right Now

A woman on the radio talked about revolution
when it’s already passed her by
Bob Dylan didn’t have this to sing about
you know it feels good to be alive

I was alive and I waited, waited
I was alive and I waited for this

Right here, right now
there is no other place I want to be
Right here, right now
watching the world wake up from history

I saw the decade in, when it seemed
the world could change at the blink of an eye
And if anything
then there’s your sign of the times

I was alive and I waited, waited
I was alive and I waited for this

Right here, right now

I was alive and I waited, waited
I was alive and I waited for this

Right here, right now
there is no other place I want to be
Right here, right now
watching the world wake up from history
Right here, right now
there is no other place I want to be
Right here, right now
watching the world wake up from history
Right here, right now
there is no other place I want to be
Right here, right now
watching the world wake up from history

Counting Crows – Mr. Jones

Sha, la, la, la, la, la, la
Mmm
Uh huh

I was down at the New Amsterdam
Staring at this yellow-haired girl
Mr Jones strikes up a conversation
With a black-haired flamenco dancer
You know, she dances while his father plays guitar
She’s suddenly beautiful
We all want something beautiful
Man, I wish I was beautiful

So come dance the silence down through the morning
Sha la, la, la, la, la, la, la
Yeah
Uh huh
Yeah

Cut up, Maria!
Show me some of that Spanish dancin’
Pass me a bottle, Mr Jones
Believe in me
Help me believe in anything
‘Cause I want to be someone who believes
Yeah

Mr Jones and me
Tell each other fairy tales
And we stare at the beautiful women
She’s looking at you
Ah, no, no, she’s looking at me
Smilin’ in the bright lights
Coming through in stereo
When everybody loves you
You can never be lonely

Well, I’m gonna paint my picture
Paint myself in blue and red and black and gray
All of the beautiful colors are very, very meaningful
Yeah, well, you know gray is my favorite color
I felt so symbolic yesterday
If I knew Picasso
I would buy myself a gray guitar and play

Mr Jones and me
Look into the future
Yeah, we stare at the beautiful women
She’s looking at you
I don’t think so
She’s looking at me
Standing in the spotlight
I bought myself a gray guitar
When everybody loves me
I will never be lonely
I will never be lonely
Said I’m never gonna be
Lonely

I wanna be a lion
Yeah, everybody wants to pass as cats
We all wanna be big, big stars
Yeah, but we got different reasons for that
Believe in me
‘Cause I don’t believe in anything
And I wanna be someone to believe, to believe, to believe
Yeah!

Mr Jones and me
Stumbling through the Barrio
Yeah, we stare at the beautiful women
She’s perfect for you
Man, there’s got to be somebody for me
I wanna be Bob Dylan
Mr Jones wishes he was someone just a little more funky
When everybody love you
Oh! Son, that’s just about as funky as you can be

Mr Jones and me
Starin’ at the video
When I look at the television, I wanna see me
Staring right back at me
We all wanna be big stars
But we don’t know why, and we don’t know how
But when everybody loves me
I’m wanna be just about as happy as I can be
Mr Jones and me
We’re gonna be big stars
