Entertainment. That is the one purpose of this song. Lil Nas X stumbled across the number one song in the country. Not because it was an outstanding song that people felt from the soul. It was meant for purely entertaining purposes, and you can tell by the comedic visual that accompanies it. The skit in the beginning catches your attention with familiar faces popping up, such as Ha Ha Davis and Chris Rock. The visual goes from old western America, then time travels to the modern era. Then the real video starts as we follow their quirky story in a new world they're not accustomed to. I don't want to give top much away, definitely should check the link below.
