Lil Nas X’s “Old Town Road” is still the number one song on the Billboard Top 100. The massively popular one-hit-wonder also had a music video released recently. The video was tactically released May 17th, the same date as Tyler, The Creator’s “IGOR” and Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Dedicated.”

 

The “official movie” featured a variety of celebrities and artists, including Chris Rock, Haha Davis, Rico Nasty, Diplo, Jozzy, Young Kio, and Vince Staples. In the video, Lil Nas X is a cowboy sent to the future after trying to avoid a gunfight. Viewers experience a variety of unexpected twists and pop culture references. Most notably, Vince Staples loses a race to a horse. The video seemingly serves the purpose of reminding people of how goofy and likable Lil Nas X is.

 

Take a gander for yourself.
