Chipotle Queso: The Key to Happiness Growing up I loved the flavors of Chipotle; the smoky meats, the charred peppers and the blend of delicious sides. One may ask why choose this advertisement for a company like Chipotle, because of the many persuasive images, textual messages, and vibrant visuals found in this mouthwatering piece. I consider this advertisement similar to an urgent announcement in which Chipotle is warning their customers to get excited that they finally have queso.
