Chipotle is promoting a fundraiser this Halloween to benefit the Foundation and Farm Aid, and to do it, they produced a short film titled "Abandoned" about the hardships American farmers face. They enlisted Yeah Yeah Yeahs' singer Karen O to do a remake of "Mammas Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up to Be Cowboys," made famous by Willie Nelson and Waylon Jennings, for the film.
Watch it after the jump.
Directed by filmmaker David Altobelli, Chipotle wants the film to raise awareness of Chipotle's Boorito fundraiser held on Halloween. To participate in the fundraiser, go to any Chipotle restaurant between 6 p.m. and closing on October 31st dressed in a costume inspired by the family farm and purchase a burrito, bowl, salad or order of tacos for only $2. Proceeds, up to $1 million, will be donated to the Chipotle Cultivate Foundation and Farm Aid.
