Lil Nas X’s new video “Montero (Call Me By Your Name)” has got the entire internet talking, and the memes are flying.
The Grammy Award-winning artist burst into the music scene in 2019 with the wholesome hit “Old Town Road“. The hit has not quit, and now “Old Town Road” has become the most-streamed song of all time in the US, according to Chart Data.
Alongside the fantastic milestone, Lil Nas X released his new single “Montero (Call Me By Your Name)” on Friday (26 March) with a provocative, thirst-inducing, self-directed video with Tanu Muino.
The video depicts several alter-egos of Lil Nas X in scenes that are inspired by history and mythology. This includes making out with an alien version of himself, a Marie Antoinette-meets-The Hunger Games stoning and a lap dance with the devil.
Needless to say, fans were wowed by the fantastically queer video, and it’s already inspired some amazing reactions from people on Twitter.
One person illustrated Lil Nas X’s journey from “Old Town Road” to “Montero (Call Me By Your Name)” with two pictures of Spongbob Squarepants‘ Patrick Star.
The transformation from cowboy to literal sex demon was a theme that other fans picked up on, creating their own iterations.
One shared cowboy Patrick Star alongside the powerful, flamboyant demon HIM from Powerpuff Girls – a fitting comparison as Lil Nas X becomes the ruler of hell after killing the devil post-lap dance.
Another fan shared how Lil Nas X’s more * cough * physical attributes changed over the years.
Keeping with the Patrick Star theme, one person compared Lil Nas X’s takeover from the devil with the sexy Patrick meme from the Spongebob Squarepants Movie.
A fan named Zach shared a beautiful video of a guy performing a fantastic pole dance while riding on public transportation.
