For today’s Music Monday, we’re taking a break from Farm Aid 2011 videos and going back in time to 2001. Why? Because today is BOORITO day at Chipotle Mexican Grill! You can get a $2 burrito when you wear a family farm-inspired costume from 6pm to closing. Half of that money goes to Farm Aid and the other half goes to Chipotle’s Cultivate Foundation.
As part of Chipotle’s BOORITO promotion, they created a spooky video called “Abandoned” that features Karen O (vocalist of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs) covering Willie Nelson’s classic “Mammas Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up to be Cowboys.” Here’s Willie singing it at Farm Aid 2001 Noblesville, Indiana and right below that is Karen O’s version:
Be sure to snap a photo in your costume after you get your burrito tonight, then upload it to Farm Aid’s Facebook page (you’ll see the upload form later today). The two people whose photos get the most votes, get VIP tickets to Farm Aid’s 2012 concert! Five other random entrants will win Farm Aid prize packs.
