Doritos' fan favorite flavor Cool Ranch is getting the Super Bowl treatment with a wild west themed advertisement that is set to air during football's big game.

In a new teaser video for the commercial, America's choice film cowboy, Sam Elliott, reprises his role as a broncobuster as he swings open the double-doors of an old school saloon. Upon approaching the bar, Elliott delivers his monologue, with some lines music fans will immediately recognize. 

"I got the horses in the back/ Horse tack is attached/ Hat is matte black/ Got the boots that's black to match," he declares mysteriously, reciting the lyrics from Lil Nas X's "Old Town Road." 

Catch the teaser below, and tune in to the Super Bowl for the full ad on Feb. 2.
