Whether it’s for a client or not, if Cornett has a good idea we roll with it. Such was the case with SquirrelsSquirrelsSquirrels Burritos.
It sounds insane, but it makes more sense if you know that here in Lexington there’s a beloved local Tex-Mex spot called GirlsGirlsGirls Burritos that specializes in bike deliveries, late-night service and just generally being swell neighbors.
We approached the Girls gang with the blueprint for a surreal stunt that we thought would put a much-deserved spotlight on their small business, as well as give us a chance to flex our creative muscle. Basically, we wanted to build a miniature replica of their restaurant designed, menu and all, exclusively for squirrels.
Champions that they are, they were all about it.
With the help of a local makerspace, we built the little eatery. Then we grilled up some on-brand grub like tiny acorn-filled burritos, had ourselves a ribbon cutting on the University of Kentucky campus, and let our furry friends go to town.
