Old Town Road singer Lil Nas X is back with another hit that is spreading through every viral channel possible, even games.
The country rapper released Montero (Call Me By Your Name) in late March, after a taste of the Super Bowl lit the fire under fans. Now, to further fan those flames, Lil Nas X is bringing the scorching song visuals to the games.
The clip is already generating its own memes, but Lil Nas is already leading the pack, creating his own game called Twerk Hero in which you fend off the invaders using the power of the rapper’s ass.
Can you cross all the levels? @LilNasX The game ‘Twerk Hero’ is now available.

And if that’s a little too R-rated for you, there’s always that reimagining of the music video in Animal Crossing, with an amazing costume you can make yourself. The video was edited by TikTok user AlexiaTheGreat56 who has dozens of other Animal Crossing skits, a talented person indeed. Unfortunately, we can’t find any designer code, so you’ll have to manually recreate it in the designer app. Carefully, but if you liked the music video, it will be worth it in the end.

Lil Nas X is no stranger to viral success, having spent his early career as a Tweetdecker managing Nicki Minaj Stan accounts and knowing exactly how to get something caught on the internet. The spread of Old Town Road through early TikTok and other short-form memes channels is proof enough of this.
Montero’s same approach, filled with memes he sows himself, will make him another must-have summer tune once back in clubs this year.
