Karen O. – Abandoned from David Altobelli on Vimeo.


a new short film, directed by David Altobelli and created for Chipotle’s campaign supporting small-scale agriculture. It’s called “Abandoned”, and features Yeah Yeah Yeahs frontwoman Karen O’s rendition of “Mammas Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up to Be Cowboys”, a song first recorded by Ed Bruce in 1975 and made popular by Willie Nelson and Waylon Jennings in 1978.
The song and short film come as part of Chipotle’s annual Halloween fundraiser Boorito, which benefits the Chipotle Cultivate Foundation and Farm Aid’s efforts to protect family farmers from the negative effects of industrialized farming.
