The Super Bowl doesn’t air until February 2, but teasers of some of the iconic ads have already been released. For instance, the Doritos commercial features the beloved Sam Elliott. In the commercial, he recites the lyrics to the popular 2019 song “Old Town Town,” made popular by Lil Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus.
The commercial is set to look like an old Western film. Sam is dressed as The Stranger from the film The Big Lebowski. He walks up to a saloon and gets a drink. He starts to recite the lyrics from the song and the entire mood is very dramatic.

In addition, Sam repeats, “You can’t tell me nothing,” to the bartender and then walks out as he hears the real song start to play.
