Genius.

Are you a donor? Think about it.

“A year and a half in the making, the two-minute video – filmed by California-based production studio Furlined and featuring Thomas Jane, of the HBO series “Hung,” music written by Coldplay and a voiceover by actor Will Arnett – was posted on YouTube on Thursday with the goal of creating buzz and ultimately going viral, said David Fleming, CEO of Donate Life America.”

Coldplay – Beastie Boys


[YouTubeUlar] <— 191,816 Don't drop any gay cards on this one - Coldplay still has some serious emotional value in the music world... and was the first concert I've ever been arrested.

“Live at the Hollywood Bowl, CA, USA – May 4, 2012
Tribute to MCA (Adam Yauch) of the Beastie Boys – Rest in Peace”

Funny when you die… how people start listening?

Chipotle – Back to the start


[YouTube] <— 4,429,478 [Behind the Scenes] <— 44,751 Congratulations to Chipotle for airing their first national television commercial. Back to the Start was a YouTube web release back in August and carries you through the story of Chipotle, told through the practices of a farmer.

“The film, by film-maker Johnny Kelly, depicts the life of a farmer as he slowly turns his family farm into an industrial animal factory before seeing the errors of his ways and opting for a more sustainable future. Both the film and the soundtrack were commissioned by Chipotle to emphasize the importance of developing a sustainable food system.”

1000% Genius – should have been a Super Bowl ad.

Buy the song and support The Chipotle Cultivate Foundation.
