Chipotle got people talking during the NFL’s Thanksgiving Day game.
Late in the second quarter of the Cowboys-Raiders game, Chipotle ran a two-and-a-half-minute commercial featuring a cartoon farmer seemingly dying in the snow while a cover version of Coldplay’s “Fix You” plays in the background that left people scratching their heads.

NFL fans weren’t exactly sure what to make of the commercial.
All that for a Chipotle commercial.

Laughed out loud when the very long weepy commercial with a cartoon weeble wobble farmer seemingly freezing to death in the snow finally revealed it was for chipotle

Outrage in the household about the confusing plot of the chipotle ad

A sad heartstring pulling ad about family and quite literally a death fakeout all literally leading to "Eat Chipotle" is one of the funniest things I've seen in a minute… pic.twitter.com/UJ0UAdERPh
