Lil Nas X continues to immerse us in the world of his “Montero (Call Me By Your Name)" music video and we never want to leave!
Yesterday on Twitter, the superstar singer posted a video of his new browser rhythm game, Twerk Hero. “My new game ‘Twerk hero’ is out now! Can u make it through all levels,” he tweeted along with a link to the game.
The game is all about playing as Lil Nas X and twerking your way through the different locations and looks featured in the “Montero (Call Me By Your Name)” music video. It is sexy and absolutely hilarious. By using your mouse to make Nas twerk both up and down, and side to side, you smack jeweled pitchforks, eerily similar to buttplugs, with Nas’ incredibly jiggly ass.
It’s a bonkers game, and delightfully gay and campy, It's also fun, and a great way to kill time while listening to the hottest track of the year. Thank you Lil Nas X for introducing jiggling ass twerking to video games.
Nas is also said he’d be releasing an action figure based on the look, complete with stripper pole. “Limited Edition” the mockup of a Stripper Nas action figure says on the box. There’s no word on whether or not the figures will actually become available for the public.
Yesterday the 21 year-old superstar recreated the look and settings from the instantly iconic music video in the popular video game Animal Crossing. He dressed his character in a custom made shirt, replicating the shirtless look from the video. Somehow he managed to make pole dancing for satan adorable as heck.
Earlier this week, “Montero” became the singer’s second number one Billboard song, forever proving he’s not a one-hit wonder or a one-trick pony. “Y'all told a 19 year old who had just escaped the lowest point of his life that he would never have a hit again,” he tweeted when the news hit. “You told him to stop while he’s ahead. He could’ve gave up. But 4 multi platinum songs and 2 #1’s later, he’s still here. Thank you to my team and my fans!”
Lil Nas isn’t just not giving up or stopping while he’s ahead, he’s not even slowing down. Instead, he’s breaking new ground for queer artists and making space in pop culture for Black gay men in a way that’s never been done before. Please never stop being you.
