The first of the three commercials features the men swapping outfits — Lil Nas X wears a costume resembling the feathered one John wore on “The Muppet Show” in 1977, while John sports a look similar to the one Nas wore to the 2020 Grammy Awards. In the second, they can be seen enjoying coin-operated rides, with Elton John’s rocket spin coming to an abrupt end when he runs out of cash. The third and last clip has them arguing about the value of dipping your fries in mayonnaise or ketchup. All three ads have resulted in a wide range of gushing comments from fans.
“I love those two!! Icons!!” replied @AprilBendickson to the outfit-swapping commercial on UberEats’ official Twitter. “They both look amazing!” agreed @celinacb, adding an array of hand-clapping emoji and faces covered in lipstick kisses. “Aw look at elton tucking lil nas x under his big glorious wings,” wrote U Tried It on the YouTube posting of the ad.
“Comedy gold. I need a complete series with these two,” replied Bugs Bizz on the YouTube posting of the “Rides” commercial.
“sitar + flower arrangement + stair case = camp,” remarked Isabel Costian in the comments section of the mayo vs. ketchup ad posted to YouTube.
Fans will get to hear more from both singers when “Montero” drops on September 17 and “The Lockdown Sessions” is released on October 22.
