I think we officially live in a world now where every couple of weeks there will be a new singer, rapper, sports hero, actor or other various famous folk who will join Lil Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus for an Old Town Road remix. Then there will be a new music video featuring those new people, the group will bask in the glow of going viral, and then a couple of weeks down the road the cycle will begin over again.
We’re already well into the second round of OTR’s viral cycle, which started when BRC and LNX (seriously, there are way too many names in this story) released the remix of the already viral song with Young Thug and Mason Ramsey last week, and now we have a new video to go along with it.
The video is actually pretty clever because it feeds off the whole the-internet-is-going-to-storm-Area-51 story that’s popular right now. I’m kind of impressed that they were able to animate a whole music video as quickly as they did and have it tie into a story that’s still currently being talked about.
Anyway, check it out below. And I’ll see you back here in about two weeks for the next round of Old Town Road fame.
