It’s been a week since Super Bowl LIV, in which the Kansas City Chiefs came out victorious over the San Francisco 49ers, 31-20. Meanwhile, much of the talk over the past week has been on the greatest Super Bowl commercials, which are usually a highly anticipated aspect of the event, sometime even more so than the half-time show. One of the funniest 2020 Super Bowl commercials did indeed involve horses—but it wasn’t the Budweiser Clydesdales. Instead it was for Doritos in a commercial starring Sam Elliott and Lil Nas X of “Old Town Road” fame.
Best Super Bowl Commercial This Year?
Many applauded the “showdown” between these Lil Nas X and actor Sam Elliott, of western movie fame, with their two “dancing” horses in the 2020 Super Bowl commercial for Doritos. And we can’t forget the cameo from Billy Ray Cyrus. The commercial is reminiscent of the original music video of the song, in which Lil Nas X rides a horse, ironically for the first time despite the song being all about horses, according to the singer.
We also came across a video about the making of the commercial that you’ll want to see (see below), done by Access Hollywood.
So you tell us, which one won the dance showdown: Lil Nas X or Sam Elliott?
And which horse won?
