Ah, yes, Chipotle's new commercial, its first ever, apparently. Completely forgot about this until just now, actually. Last summer, our pal Laura Shunk wrote about this little moving picture on the Cafe Society blog. She dug it. Found it "quirky, emotionally engaging" and, well, "pretty cool." Not really sure what we think about it. Just aired on the Grammys. It's a Fisher-Price Little People-evoking animation involving sustainability and a farmer guy having a crisis of crisis of conscience, and the whole thing is soundtracked by Willie Nelson doing a melancholic version of "The Scientist" by Coldplay. We get what they're going for here, but, well, it's no "Hurt" by Johnny Cash. Have you seen it? What do you think? Page down to have a look.
