The trailer, titled “Nike v. Lil Nas X – Satan Shoes Trial,” depicts a fictional nevertheless hilarious trial where Lil Nas X plays himself and a couple of other roles: a judge, a defense attorney, juror, and also a prosecutor. Nevertheless in spite of the fact that the trial is meant concentrate on the Satan shoes, it suddenly centers on his sexuality. There really is tension among each person in the courtroom right following the lawyer asks, “Let me rephrase the question: Do your momma know you gay?” Lil Nas X simply responds, “Yes.” The audience begins whispering among each other and the juror says, “Yeah, lock him and throw away the key.” The judge then sentences Lil Nas X for five years in Montero State Prison.

The video rolls into credits, which also announces that “Industry Baby” features Jack Harlow and is produced by Take a Day Trip and Kanye West. Lil Nas X later tweeted that the music video will actually be set months right following the fictional trial.

It’s clear that the trailer is intended to poke fun at the backlash he obtained for his infamous customized line of sneakers and his sexually charged song “Montero (Call Me By Your Name),” as well as the lawsuit between Nike and art collective MSCHF, who collaborated with the “Old Town Road” singer in designing the shoes. The line was released alongside the music video of “Montero” back in March and was based on its most talked-about scene: Lil Nas X performing a lap dance on Satan before killing and becoming him. The shoes had designs of pentagrams, inverted crosses, plus a text referencing Luke 10:18 in The holy scriptures. There were plans for only 666 pairs to be made and sold, and the soles allegedly held a drop of human blood. Obviously, the Satan shoes sold out in much less than a minute.

Yet, Nike reps expressed that they never were involved in the release of the shoes and sued MSCHF, though they eventually settled. All of the sold shoes were recalled in April and buyers were recommended full refunds.

While Nike cracked down on the unauthorized shoes, Lil Nas X was accused of promoting sexual immorality and Satanism, despite the fact that “Montero” and its music video are allegories for his personalized struggles and pride in his sexuality. Nevertheless because the “Industry Baby” trailer shows, Lil Nas X gives no fucks about who he pisses off for being gay, or for anything else he does.

Fans are, needless to say, loving his comedic genius in social-media marketing his new single. The reactions have spawned into memes as well as a trending campaign hashtag #FreeLilNasX.

“Montero (Call Me By Your Name)” debuted at No. 1 at the Billboard Hot 100, becoming his second No. 1 hit single right after “Old Town Road.” With the major excitement from fans, we'll visualize if “Industry Baby” will also chart at the best. The song and its music video are set to be released on July 23.
