Lil Nas X Trial with Nike Troll to Promote New Song
A wise troll beyond his years.
Lil Nas X does what he does best: troll enemies and earn money at the same time.
He was torn because of the scene where he was doing a lap dance to Satan.
To promote the song, he teamed up with MSCHF to launch “Satan Shoes” – a video-themed sneaker with the Nike logo on it. Well, Nike was not very happy because they “had nothing to do” with the creation of the shoe, according to the hollywood reporter.
Given that Lil Nas X is literally the king of turning pain into profit, he’s of course used all of this controversy to promote his upcoming single, “Industry Baby” – starring Jack Harlow and produced by Kanye West – in joking elaborately on social media. about an upcoming “court date” and potentially “going to jail”.
Followed by others similar to TikTok variations … which all feature an extract from his new song, by the way.
And then there was this series of really golden tweets.
My favorite :
And Since her fan base still understands the mission, they’ve taken it a step further: “#FreeLilNasX” started trending on Twitter on Monday to extend the joke and simultaneously create hype for the new song.
If you’re not fully convinced that Lil Nas X is the king of PR (and comedy), then you’re wrong. Sorry.
“Industry Baby” falls on Friday. Diffuse Lil Nas X for clear skin!
