Who had Lil Nas X, blood drop Nikes and satan worship on your 2021 bingo card?
In a tale stranger than fiction, the “Old Town Road” rapper has thrown some feathers with the video for his new single, “MONTERO (Call Me By Your Name),” filled with demonic imagery usually reserved for death. metal bands.
As if that wasn’t enough, his collaboration with sneaker designer MSCHF to market “Satan Shoes” (custom Nike Air Max 97s with human blood-soaked ink injected into the shoe’s air pocket) has led to a lawsuit from Nike. .
Building on the enthusiasm, AR app Jadu has teamed up with Lil Nas X to create a volumetric video that allows you to “have a conversation” with the artist.
Lil Nas X is available now on the App Store and appears dressed in red angel wings, red pants, a black tank top and a leather bag hanging over his shoulder.
He nervously walks around in a one-sided conversation, with space between his lines. This allows users to record video with their own dialogue and share the virtual conversation on social media. In other words, this is tailor-made for TikTok, with one video garnered over 80,000 likes at the time of writing.
While the AR experience was meant to promote his new single, it seems a bit unnecessary given the controversy that Lil Nas X has garnered for the music video. Now you can at least participate.
