Doja Cat Doesn’t Clown Around With Super Bowl Cover of Hole’s ‘Celebrity Skin’

Courtney Love helped reimagine some of the lyrics to the band’s 1998 hit

Doja Cat’s vocals will be gracing the homes of millions on Super Bowl Sunday — thanks to a new Taco Bell commercial. Doja will be featured in the spot, titled “The Grande Escape,” where the singer covers Hole’s “Celebrity Skin” — and frontwoman Courtney Love helped reimagine some of the lyrics.

“Oh, make me over/I’m all I want to be/A walking fire/You can’t get rid of me,” she sings in the first verse, replacing the lyrics “A walking study/In demonology.” The song will also drop as a single this week.

The ad — set to air during the game’s fourth quarter — follows clown ‘fit-clad Doja and a set of friends as they escape clown school to think outside the bun and (Baja) blast toward Taco Bell. A behind-the-scenes video follows Doja as she films takes for the music video in front of a blue screen and records her rendition of Hole’s 1998 alt-rock classic.

By the end of the video, Doja and her friends dramatically lose the circus garb and enjoy their fast-food meal outside the restaurant and in their car.

“It’s no secret I’m a major Taco Bell fan which has made my role with this campaign all the more fun,” Doja Cat said in a press release. “I’ve enjoyed every moment of this campaign, especially the ones where we get to break all the rules.”
