Chipotle Mexican Grill officially named the record-holder for most consecutive days eating at the restaurant. The kicker is that it is none other than Bruce Wayne.
Batman fans may have assumed that Bruce Wayne of Gotham City holds Chipotle-eating record. However, it is actually Bruce Wayne of Ohio who has eaten for 426 consecutive days at his local Chipotle. Not that Chipotle’s official press release helps clarifying the name mix-up. Their official announcement implies that it is the Batman who is the record-holder.
“While this might not be everybody’s New Year’s Resolution for 2018, it certainly shows that our menu of real and fresh ingredients offers something for everyone – even superheroes.”
Chipotle Twisting the Truth
Now, hold on there, Chipotle. We clearly see from Wayne of Ohio’s Instagram account and pictures that he is not the Batman.
You are trying to fool us into thinking that it is Wayne of Gotham City by giving him a commemorative Chipotle cuff links and cape to wear as “a nod to his love of both Batman and burritos.” His mask does not even have bat-ears! At best, that’s Damian Wayne chowing on that burrito.
Further clouding the issue, a portion of the money that Wayne spent at Chipotle will be donated to a non-profit charity of his choice. Donating to charity is an activity that Bruce Wayne of the comics partakes in often. Will Chipotle stop at nothing to infer that Batman is their record-holder?
But, upon closer inspection of the press release, Chipotle messed up. They gave their Bruce Wayne a different origin story. Gone is the “parent murder in the alleyway” motivation and replaced with something more mundane.
“Wayne started his challenge on Oct. 30, 2016 after learning of Chipotle’s plans to open a brand-new location in Tiffin. He conducted research about Chipotle and learned about a fellow fan who had ultimately consumed Chipotle for 425 days and maintained his fitness goals. Wayne then set out to become the new record holder. Day after day we’re committed to serving our customers the most delicious, real ingredients we can find and it’s great to see a customer like Bruce is as committed to us as we are to him”
Wayne of Ohio did indicate that he will continue his Chipotle streak. To see his past exploits at Chipotle, check out his Instagram account.
