Our Top Spot this week takes the form of Chipotle’s latest animated short film, conceived by a creative ensemble at CAA--with Passion Pictures serving as the production/animation studio. Saschka Unseld directed the short, titled A Love Story, via Passion.

The short centers on a lass with a lemonade stand situated across the road from a lad with an orange juice stand who escalate their business competition--despite having feelings for each other--way beyond their original natural, fresh-squeezed offerings. Each business over time becomes a reservoir of processed fast food, with ever growing menus not even remotely related to their initial core fruit juice refreshments.

The processed machine-made food operations take on an all consuming life of their own, until the guy and gal break free and return to their natural wholesome food roots, coming together to provide healthy, nourishing fare at their own independent restaurant/store.
