Super Bowl

Sam Elliott and Lil Nas X Dance Battle for Doritos in Super Bowl Spot

The chip brand's 60-second spot also features a Billy Ray Cyrus cameo


For his first on-camera commercial in over 40 years, Sam Elliott is starring alongside Lil Nas X in Doritos’ 60-second Super Bowl 54 spot.

Elliott’s career began in the late ’60s and has been largely—but not completely—defined by the cowboy persona. His smooth baritone drawl has been heard in a wide range of ads for things like beer, meat and trucks, but he’s also garnered widespread acclaim for his acting chops. His lengthy resume includes classics like Road House and The Big Lebowski, to name just two, and in 2017 he starred in a drama about an over-the-hill Western icon, The Hero.
