Venables Bell & Partners has rolled out Chipotle Mexican Grill’s “Behind the Foil” campaign, billed as an intimate look into the company’s operations in its 25-year history. The documentary-style digital and TV spots, shot by famed documentarian Errol Morris via production house Biscuit Filmworks, aim to “pull back the foil” by featuring behind-the-scenes footage of Chipotle restaurants including Chipotle’s kitchens, equipment and prep routines, and featuring Chipotle employees and the farming partners that fuel the brand’s real ingredients. 

The campaign provides unfiltered and emotional testimonials from Chipotle team members about the impact Chipotle has had on their lives, as well as a glimpse into the daily preparation of Chipotle’s fresh ingredients. 

In this spot, Chipotle worker Krista shows us the simple process she uses to make guacamole--while building her muscles.
