Lil Nas X & Billy Ray Cyrus Drop Video for 'Old Town Road'
Viral, genre-defying “Old Town Road” by Lil Nas X, and featuring Billy Ray Cyrus, now has an official movie. Not a music video, but a movie. It’s cinema, baby.
The movie starts out with Lil Nas X and Cyrus in the Wild West circa 1889, hiding out after their latest successful bank robbery. When they’re chased off by a gunslinging cowboy, Lil Nas X dives into a wormhole — and lands in 2019. He wanders the new old town road with his horse, stumbling through modern day streets. Chris Rock is also there. So is Detective Pikachu co-star Diplo. Billy Ray dons sparkly pink cowboy attire. They end up in a bingo hall with a Western theme. It’s amazing.
The five-minute-long Western is every bit as genre-defying and epic as the saga of the song it is based on.
