I wasn't sure about where to post this, but I really wanted to talk about Chipotle's new advertisement called "The Scarecrow". Please click below to watch it.

Personally, I think this is one of the most beautiful advertisements I've ever seen. The animation was amazing and Fiona Apple's cover of "Pure Imagination" was perfect. I'd like to see more advertisements like this, to be honest. It got the point across without throwing the brand in your face and most certainly held my attention. No need for gratuitous sex or violence or bizarre "randomness".

Alright, I think I'm done gushing about this, now. What do you think about advertisements like this?

(Also, if this needs moved to a different forum section, my apologies. I can take this down if need be.)

ok ok ok ok and no ... the thing is 3+mins isn't an advert .. its a damn full motion video .. adverts are generally 30seconds

and the song is horribly done .... whats with the random vocal vibrations? whats with the lack of holding a tone? whats with the lack of non unification of the song?

pisses me off when someone does a crap cover... pure imagination was the first some i learned to play .. and i can and have sang it better while taking washing dishes -.-

I thought it was a great cover. But I'm also a fan of Fiona Apple. Her music tends to be very dark and she does do a lot of odd vocal patterns. It doesn't make it bad, though. Sorry you don't like it and can't have an open mind about it because you have emotional ties to the original.

As for the video, standard advertisement or not, it's beautifully animated very well done.

The song choice was a surprise, I haven't heard that since I last watched WIlly Wonka as a kid. I thought it was a good cover, the tone of it matched what was being shown in the video. Until the very end I thought it was an artistic way to try and promote healthier eating habits by showing how fast food is nothing but chemicals and additives. It made a bigger impression on me since they didn't actually come out and say what it was until the very end. I'm definitely very interested in this app now.
