Willie Nelson covering Coldplay's "The Scientist" in very cool animated short "Back to the Start"

(CBS) - Okay, I am a huge fan when amazing things collide and are made even more amazing. This is one of those cases as country legend Willie Nelson does a cover of Coldplay's "The Scientist" for the soundtrack of a very cool animated short entitled "Back to the Start".

The video was put out by Chipotle who write about the project:

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.

I'm going to go ahead and give Chipotle some props (and Willie Nelson and film-maker Johnny Kelly major props), as I personally found this video and song cover to be pretty epic.

What are your thoughts about it? Definitely feel free to leave me some comment love below.
