Lil Nas X is going to milk his hit “Old Town Road” (Remix) with Billy Ray Cyrus until it can no longer be milked.
Pop culture-born “Old Town Road” and controversial remix, held firm at No. 01 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart for 6 weeks and counted now. The song gained momentum when it was dubbed in footage from the popular Red Dead Redemption 3 video game released this year. The song was also taken off the country music charts by Billboard, which led to the feature film starring Billy Ray Cyrus and the song has been unstoppable ever since.
A week ago, Lil Nas X also posted a video of what the lyrics to “Old Town Road” would look like in emojis. The video was once again a success. And now comes the movie version starring Chris Rock, Haha Davis, Rico Nasty, Diplo, Jozzy, Young Kio, and Vince Staples. The video is over 5 minutes long.
The film is action packed as it begins with a horse chase. Lil Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus are chased down the “Old Town Road” by three horsemen, two of whom are Chris Rock and Haha Davis. It’s 1889. The three riders give up the hunt at some point and Chris Rock declares; “When you see a black man on a horse going that fast, you just have to let him fly.”
Billy Ray Cyrus and Lil Nas X try to take refuge in a house in the “old town” and are quickly chased away by the gunshots of the owner. Lil Nas X jumps into a nearby cave and lands on the modern ‘Old Town Road’ in 2019. The song starts from there.
Billy and Nas X travel the modern world in their cowboy outfits and their horses. A nicer merger of 1889 and 2019 comes when Lil Nas X decides to race his real horse (apparently with a V12 engine) with a horse-powered car. Nas X wins the race.
Billy Ray Cyrus and Lil Nas X end up in a dance class where everyone learns their cowboy dances that day. Billy and Nas X perform their song there and everyone has a good beat to get going. Diplo appears in this club as a music provider, also complete in a cowboy outfit.
At the end of the video, another cutscene with Chris Rock and his fellow riders appears where they compliment the speed of Lil Nas X’s horse. “Faster than a bullet,” Chris Rock marvels. “Faster than the speed of a bullet with fat on it …”
