Lil Nas X has released a trailer for his upcoming single, Holiday, debuting on 13 November.

In the short clip, titled The Origins of 'Holiday', the singer rides into an old Western town on a horse with his hit track Old Town Road playing in the background (an ode to the popular video).

We then see a drunk Santa being tossed out of a saloon. Nas picks up Santa's hat, and with that, signs a magical contract becoming the new Santa, just like Tim Allen in the 90s film The Santa Clause.

As Lil Nas X jets through time on his sleigh, we see a cameo from actor Michael J. Fox who warns: "Whatever you do Nas, don't go to 2020". A reference to the classic movie Back to the Future.
