Chipotle Mexican Grill announced it is teaming up with 12-year-old Roy Murray, aka the “Chipotle Is My Life” Kid, for a limited edition apparel drop as part of the Chipotle Goods collection. Roy became an internet sensation in 2014 when he famously exclaimed “OMG, I love Chipotle. Chipotle is My Life!” on camera (https://vm.tiktok.com/ZMeNYbrwf/). The collection features bold text and imagery referencing the viral moment.
