Let’s Give Bob Dylan A Nice Bed!
$1,575 of $1,360 goal
Hence, we have started this GoFundMe page with the goal of purchasing Bob a brand-new Sleep Number® adjustable bed. This includes a classic c2 Sleep Number® mattress, a sturdy modular base, and an intuitive wireless remote for adjusting the bed’s firmness. With taxes and shipping, the bed will cost $1,359.97. It is expensive, but we believe that this is the least we can do to thank “The Man In The Hat” for his service to the American people.
If we exceed our goal, the extra money will go toward purchasing comfortable blankets and/or additional Sleep Number® adjustable beds for Bob. If we fail to meet our goal, any money raised will be refunded to the original donors. But let’s hope it doesn’t come to that.
If you have ever listened to any of Bob’s music, you owe it to him to donate to this wonderful cause. Let’s show him that he is not forgotten, but rather loved and feared.
Thank you in advance for your donations, and God bless.
We thought we’d send out a quick note to help answer some of the questions we’ve been receiving about our campaign.
We, the editorial team at ClickHole.com, do not know Bob Dylan personally, but as long-time fans we felt this would be a wonderful way to show him our appreciation. Out of the $1,359.97 we’re trying to raise, $1,099.98 of it will go towards the bed itself, $179.99 will go towards shipping, and the remaining $80 will cover taxes. Once the money is raised, we will purchase the bed and have it sent to the Columbia Records headquarters in New York, care of Mr. Dylan.
Thank you all for the generosity you have already shown, and we look forward to meeting our goal soon!
The bed was delivered at 9:22 this morning, and now it’s only a matter of time before Bob is catching some Z’s on his amazing new mattress. In the meantime, be sure to inundate Columbia Records with tweets, phone calls, and emails to make sure that the bed safely makes its way into Bob’s possession.
Also, if you donated $25 or more, get excited, because we just mailed out your rewards! Many of you have already received “Bob Dylan” tweets from the ClickHole Twitter account, but be on the lookout in the coming days for printed lists of Bob Dylan songs (lowercase AND uppercase) and gorgeous hand-drawn renderings of Bob enjoying his new bed, or—for those who donated $50 or more—Bob whispering names into a can of Pepsi.
Thanks again for all the support! This just goes to show that when ordinary people unite together for a common goal, extraordinary things can be accomplished.
Bob’s bed officially shipped over the weekend, and as you can see from the picture of the Sleep Number remote below, it’s been specially personalized for “The Man In The Hat” himself! The scheduled delivery date is tomorrow, Tuesday, August 18, so hopefully our next update will be to tell you that Bob is happily enjoying his new bed.
Also, the beautiful Bob Dylan duvet cover that we purchased with the extra funds was delivered this morning and signed for by someone named “F Lamb”—perhaps the pseudonym Bob uses when he travels? Who’s to say?!?
Thanks again for all your support! We couldn’t be more excited.
Thank you SO MUCH for all your generous contributions and encouraging words. If you’d still like to give, we’ll be keeping donations open until 11 PM CST tonight. Shortly after, we’ll begin working on sending out rewards, so be on the lookout for further updates and emails.
In the meantime, pat yourself on the back for doing your part in making sure that “The Man In The Hat” feels appreciated—and well-rested! When Bob opens the huge box and sees his new bed, he won’t be able to hold back the tears of gratitude.
We love you, Bob! You are our grandpa.
How many beds must a man sleep on Before they call him a man? How many sheep must a tired guy count Before he sleeps in the sand? Yes, how many yards must the throw pillows fly Before they're forever banned ? The answer my friend is an adjustable bed. A Sleep Number® adjustable bed.

OK so if I donate will you send me a Dylan-themed duvet cover?
I cannot believe I missed this. It was totally my cup of meat.
My last $5 goes to this bed. Sweet dreams Bob and thanks for everything. Your music has saved my life more than once. Signed, Shirley
Early one morning the sun was shinin' / Bob was laying in his Sleep Number® adjustable bed / wonderin' if she'd changed at all / if her hair was still red.
You idiots do know that Bob Dylan is worth millions, right? He can probably afford his own fricking bed. Donate your money to someone who actually needs it.
