Lil Nas X will enter the relentlessly absurd and consistently hilarious world of Eric André next month.

In a teaser clip from the upcoming sixth season of The Eric Andre Show, which was previously (and rightfully) dubbed Season 666 by the show’s team, X is seen being welcomed to the characteristically uncomfortable set for a would-be chat that’s quickly derailed. It’s difficult to put into words what, exactly, transpires here—such is the nature of this Adult Swim gem—but I’ve done my best below.

After introducing X and noting that his chosen outfit makes it seem as though he’s “gonna fuck a motorcycle through a Tron remake,” our revered host is faced with a question of his own from the guest.

“Hey, do you believe in the illuminati?” X is seen asking, at which point André's desk temporarily roars to life by way of what looks like a group of hands pressing against a skin-like wrap of some sort. Due to the inherent terror of such imagery, X is clearly left without words, though he does manage to let out a few instances of “What?” after André grows increasingly fucked up thanks to an apparent gas being emitted from his microphone.

“What the fuck is wrong with you?” X asks deeper into the clip.

For those not familiar, the show is perhaps best described as being Andy Kaufman-esque performance, albeit cranked to 11.

“Expect more deranged pranks, fire, and chaos in Season 666 with a jam-packed schedule of celebrities I can’t believe agreed to this,” André previously said when teasing what to expect this season.
