Chipotle has been active in the gaming and influencer space this month. Last week it partnered with e.l.f. Cosmetics to promote the launch of a limited make-up line and a new menu item that utilized both brands with the help of influential YouTube stars and Twitch streamers. This week it teamed with streamers such as Matthew “Nadeshot” Haag, Tim “Timthetatman” Betar, Jordan “n0thing” Gilbert, Jack, “CouRage” Dunlop, and others to promote a new line of hand-crafted quesadillas.
