Who knew Willie Nelson covering Coldplay would make me crave Chipotle?

This here is a perfect example of advertising brilliance. Willie Nelson covering Coldplay’s “The Scientist” over an extraordinary animated storyline that leaves me appreciating Chipotle’s surge toward ethical farming. It’s hard to think this company was ever affiliated with McDonald’s but those days are long gone and the brand is moving into much greener pasture. Chalk one up for team creative.

Time for a refresh on fridge magnets, Instagram style

Random word magnets to make ridiculous sentences with your friends are essential. Office Space and Napoleon Dynamite magnets are played out. But I’m really loving what UK-based StickyGram is doing. StickyGram turns your Instagram photos into 5cm x 5cm magnets for your fridge. A pack of nine will run you $14.99 including shipping (kinda, sorta pricey), but I’m really enjoying having something unique around the homestead. They also make rad gifts and you should never wait for holidays or birthdays to show someone you think they’re the bee’s knees.
