A 53-year-old clip of a young Bob Dylan refusing to sign an autograph for two Dublin fans has resurfaced and is going viral

"WHAT'S WRONG with him today?"

A short clip of a young Bob Dylan point-blank refusing to sign an autograph for two eager Dublin fans has gone viral this week, 53 years after the video was taken.

In the clip, the then-24-year-old is seen sitting in a car wearing sunglasses as two young fans peer eagerly in through the window and ask for an autograph.

In pure Bob Dylan fashion, the unaffected singer says "You don't need my autograph. If you needed it I'd give it to you!"

The Dubs shoot back with "We don't like you anymore" and ask the person behind the camera: "What's wrong with him today, eh?"-- but the male fan in particular seems to see the funny side of it, as he keeps a wide grin plastered across his face.

The short video was posted to Twitter by user Felix Tandem and has been viewed over 20,000 times, with some of the replies calling Dylan a "diva" and referencing the "iconic" line "You don't need my autograph, if you needed it I'd give it to you!"

Now the hunt is on to find the snubbed fans, who would likely now be in their 70s-- do you recognise them?
