Twerk your way down to the pits of hell with Lil Nas X’s new video game

Guitar Hero could never

Lil Nas X has been keeping busy since the release of his much-teased single “Montero (Call Me By Your Name)” and its sexy music video, featuring gorgeous, rococo-style looks courtesy of of wig genius Evanie Frausto. Since then, the artist has been fighting a never ending fleet of God-fearing republicans and has released 666 pairs of “Satan shoes” filled with real human blood.

Now, Lil Nas X has dropped a video game called Twerk Hero that lets you control a digital rendition of Montero himself to twerk away ‘temptations’ and level up. Each of the four levels contain recreated scenes of the single’s music video – and yes, you get to ride the stripper pole all the way down to hell.

The release of the music video prompted some people to point out similarities between the music video and the visuals to FKA twigs’ “Cellophane” – including “Cellophane” director Andrew Thomas Huang. Last week, FKA twigs thanked Lil Nas X for acknowledging the similarities between the videos. 

“Thank you @lilnasx for our gentle honest conversations and for acknowledging the inspiration cellophane gave you and your creative team in creating your iconic video!” she wrote on Instagram.

“I want to say thank u to twigs for calling me and informing me about the similarities between the two videos, as I was not aware they were so close,” Lil Nas X wrote in a post of his own. “(I) was only excited for the video to come out. I understand how hard you worked to bring this visual to life. You deserve so much more love and praise.”
