Lil Nas X and Elton John tried on each other’s iconic looks in a new advert.

The two singers have joined forces for the new Uber Eats campaign, which sees them ordering elaborate meals and heaping praise on each other.

In the first of three adverts, Lil Nas X wears a replica of Elton John’s famous featured glam look, which the legendary singer first debuted on The Muppet Show in the 1970s.

“Tonight, I will be eating lobster ravioli with shaved truffle,” Lil Nas X says while sporting the iconic look. The camera then pans over to Elton John, who is wearing a pink cowboy outfit inspired by the “Old Town Road” rapper’s 2020 Grammys look.

“You look amazing,” Elton John says. Nas returns the compliment, and the advert ends with the pair repeatedly thanking the other.

A second advert shows both singers riding children’s coin-operated toys as John asks Nas for money, claiming he doesn’t have enough to pay for his food order.

A third sees Elton John putting on his best high-society British accent as he and Nas argue about whether or not chips should be eaten with mayonnaise.

Elton John and Lil Nas X had a ‘blast’ working together on the Uber Eats advert

The pair seem to have had the time of their lives on set recording the adverts. Lil Nas X shared some behind the scenes photos of himself wearing his Elton John-inspired outfit on social media.

He also shared a hilarious outtake where John tells him: “B***h stole my look!” before both men descend into laughter.

“Baby Montero will be so lucky to have @EltonOfficial as their godfather,” Nas tweeted.

Elton John heaped praise on Nas in a statement released through Uber Eats.

“It’s been absolutely wonderful partnering with Lil Nas X, one of the most influential voices in pop culture,” he said.

“From taking selfies to deciding to swap looks on set, working together has been a blast.”

Lil Nas X said he was “so excited and honoured” to work with John on the advertising campaign.

“We had so much fun on set deciding what’s for dinner and trying on each other’s most iconic looks. I can’t wait for everyone to see it!”

This isn’t the first time the two trailblazing singers have joined forces – they’ve already recorded a song together, called “One of Me”, which will be released on Lil Nas X’s debut album Montero on 17 September.

The song will also appear on Elton John’s next album The Lockdown Sessions, which will be released later this year.
