Finally! The fast-food pyramid is explained.
“Endless Line,” is the latest short film from Chipotle to promote Halloween fundraiser, Boorito.
Boorito has become one of the company’s most iconic promotions. On Saturday, October 31 between 5pm and closing, Chipotle will offer $3 burritos, bowls, salads, and tacos to customers dressed in a costume with an, “unnecessary” addition. Proceeds from the fundraiser, up to $1 million, will benefit the Chipotle Cultivate Foundation.
The humorous film, created in conjunction with New York based studio, Piro and directed by Tim Piper, features a customer entering a fictitious fast food restaurant where she discovers what Chipotle would be like if it served traditional fast food rather than cooking by hand. It follows her as she orders from an endless line of workers, each adding a different artificial additive to her meal. Rather than accept her artificially flavored, colored, and processed meal, she questions where the “real” ingredient are. The short video concludes with the line: “Unnecessary additives are creepy.”

LEGS’ Geremy Jasper has teamed with iconic British clothing brand Belstaff to direct a surrealist film in the cinematic vein of Fellini and Sergio Leone. Outlaws, which stars David Beckham, Katherine Waterston, Cathy Moriarty and Harvey Keitel is a heart-thumping fever dream filled with danger, foreboding and romance.
Shot over six days in and around Mexico City, and based off of a screenplay written by Jasper two years ago, Outlaws is a classic story told in a new way. It combines black and white and colour cinematography to create a hypnagogic vision of the Mexican landscape during the early 1950’s, a strange setting populated by even stranger people, including peculiar circus performers, a blind tarot card-reading seer, motorcycle gangs and sugar skull sporting mariachi musicians.

QUITBIT is designed to take the wearer’s lifestyle habits into account and use that information to calculate how much time they have remaining in their life. Once the user’s time is almost up, it sends a notification alerting the person that it is time to start preparing for their final goodbye.
Of course, the device isn’t real and this technology doesn’t actually exist, but the idea serves to help keep funeral planning top of mind for all demographics, even the younger crowd who may not have ever thought about it.
