Personally I love Mexican food, and when this video came up in another class I kind of looked at Chipotle differently.

You almost never see advertisements for Chipotle because the food speaks for itself.

But I found this commercial ironic because it’s trying to say that they’re food is not modified and it’s ‘fresher’ than their competitors.

There’s so many things that are wrong with it, that I don’t know where to start. The fact that it’s all in a cartoon theme makes it seem less ‘corporate’…

Anyway take a look if you can, it’s just ironic…


Slavoj Zizek is one of the great minds of our time, and has very intense feelings towards consumerism and charity. Although following his train of thought (and accent) may be a bit tricky at first, watching this video really does enlighten consumers as to what they are buying and why we think its ‘good’. Give it a view, if nothing else, the cartoonist will keep you entertained.
