Doritos Cool Ranch in Old Town Road sequel

Doritos is promoting the newly-enhanced flavour of Doritos Cool Ranch chips with a Super Bowl advertising campaign featuring the Lil Nas X hit “Old Town Road”. Lil Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus, who starred in their award-winning music video, are joined by Western actor Sam Elliott, known for his roles as cowboys and ranchers. The campaign’s teasers began with Sam Elliott walking into a saloon bar to deliver a monologue, with lines taken straight from the Old Town Road hit. Bassquake, the second teaser, has Lil Nas X riding into town on his horse with his amped up sounds ready to go. The full commercial has Lil Nas X and Sam Elliott meeting in the Cool Ranch street for a dance-off. No dancing from Billy Ray Cyrus.

Old Town Road Lyrics

Yeah, I’m gonna take my horse to the old town road
I’m gonna ride ’til I can’t no more
I’m gonna take my horse to the old town road
I’m gonna ride ’til I can’t no more (Kio, Kio)
I got the horses in the back
Horse tack is attached
Hat is matte black
Got the boots that’s black to match
Ridin’ on a horse, ha

You can whip your Porsche
I been in the valley
You ain’t been up off that porch, now
Can’t nobody tell me nothin’
You can’t tell me nothin’
Can’t nobody tell me nothin’
You can’t tell me nothin’

Ridin’ on a tractor
Lean all in my bladder
Cheated on my baby
You can go and ask her
My life is a movie
Bull ridin’ and boobies
Cowboy hat from Gucci
Wrangler on my booty

Can’t nobody tell me nothin’
You can’t tell me nothin’
Can’t nobody tell me nothin’
You can’t tell me nothin’
