Courtney Love‘s study in demonology has a new student.

Rapper and pop star Doja Cat has recorded a cover of the Hole song “Celebrity Skin” for a new Taco Bell commercial. 

The ad, which is streaming now on YouTube ahead of its TV premiere during the Super Bowl this Sunday, finds Doja stuck in a school for clowns that’s constantly bombarded by an announcement that “the ice cream machine is still broken” — surely a shot at Taco Bell’s fast food competition, McDonald’s. Doja and her fellow clowns soon find an escape from the monotony, which is soundtracked by her version of “Celebrity Skin.”

You may also notice Doja singing some different lyrics from the original ’90s alt classic, which a press release says were “reworked in partnership” with Love.

The cover will be officially released this Friday. You can check out a behind-the-scenes video from the recording session now on YouTube.
