Watch: Karen O Covers Willie Nelson For Chipotle Farming Ad

    It looks like we can add one more talent to Karen O’s broadening skill set: country singer. She recently covered Willie Nelson’s “Mammas Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up to be Cowboys” as part of Chipotle Mexican Grill’s ongoing Cultivate Foundation campaign. Her take on the track appears in the video below entitled Abandoned, which uses metaphorical imagery to spread awareness concerning sustainable farming and other food-related issues. It’s pretty effective and Karen O’s vocals are as fantastic as ever. Yeah, I think it’s clear we dig this much more than the previous ad, which featured Nelson covering Coldplay’s “The Scientist.” To be fair, that video was cute, but this is superior. [CoS]
