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.”
