Lil Nas X literally took his horse to the old town road in a new teaser for an upcoming Doritos Super Bowl commercial.

In the 30-second preview unveiled on Tuesday (Jan. the cowboys in the wild, wild Western scene are shook by a "Bassquake" felt and heard from a distance, as the camera pans to Lil Nas X riding his horse to a well-known beat toward the "Cool Ranch" in honor of the popular chip's iconic flavor. He cranks up the speaker on his saddle to blast his Hot 100 record breaker "Old Town Road." 

The new snippet of the commercial follows last week's reveal, in which Sam Elliott reprises his usual role as a cowboy, delivering the lyrics to "Old Town Road" as his monologue.

Watch the teaser below, and tune in to the Super Bowl to find out what goes down on the Cool Ranch on Feb. 2.
