Teaser photo for ‘Old Town Road’ remix video inspires a fresh slate of memes

Lil Nas X tweeted out a teaser photo for the “Old Town Road” remix music video on Monday. True to the song’s viral hit form, a fresh slate of memes were born.

The Atlanta rapper and country sensation posted a photo of himself dressed as a cowboy, peering down a hole–all Indiana Jones style.

The tweet racked up more than 60,000 likes in less than a day.

The internet collectively lost its mind, churning out hundreds of memes with their own take on the photo.

Some Twitter users thought the photo was reminiscent of the 2003 Disney classic Holes. Others thought it was more reminiscent of the Avengers: End Game theory about Ant-Man crawling up Thanos’ butt to defeat him.

Some admitted the teaser gave them Indiana Jones or Jumanji vibes.

Lil Nas X was most commonly referred to as Sam from Holes. Many retweets included the caption “I can fix that,” which is a line the onion man repeats throughout his brief appearance in the movie.

Lil Nas X’s amalgam of hip-hop and country went viral earlier this year after gaining momentum on TikTok with the #YeeHaw challenge. Users gave themselves a country makeover to the tune of “Old Town Road.”

While it landed at the top of the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart, Billboard retroactively disqualified it and removed it from the list.

This spurred a conversation about what constitutes the country genre today. It also prompted a collaboration with country music legend Billy Ray Cyrus for the song’s remix, which was released in March.

The official music video for that remix will be dropping Friday.
