See Sam Elliott Recite ‘Old Town Road’ in New Super Bowl Commercial Teaser
“I got the horses in the back. Horse tack is attached. Hat is matte black. I got the boots that’s black to match.”
Actor Sam Elliott expertly makes the lyrics to Lil Nas X’s monster hit “Old Town Road” sound like an epic movie monologue in a new teaser for an upcoming Super Bowl commercial.
Sporting cowboy attire and a handlebar mustache that recalls his “Stranger” character from The Big Lebowski, Elliott recites an entire verse of the 2019 banger as he stares down submissive patrons at a Western-style saloon.
“I got the horses in the back. Horse tack is attached. Hat is matte black. I got the boots that’s black to match,” Elliott thunders in his signature style. “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 nobody tell me nothing. You can’t tell me nothing.”
As Rolling Stone notes, the booming “Old Town Road” bass line kicks in during the final seconds of the minute-long clip, which serves as an ad for Cool Ranch Doritos. If you dig it, a full-length version will air during the Super Bowl LIV broadcast on February 2.
