Guac With That

Soccer champ Julie Ertz ’14 stars in Chipotle’s first TV ad featuring a pro athlete.

Julie Ertz ’14 stars in Chipotle’s first-ever national TV ad featuring a pro athlete. First airing just before Ertz and her teammates on the U.S. Women’s national soccer team headed to the Tokyo Olympics—where they won bronze against Australia—the commercial is part of Chipotle’s “Unwrapped” series and features a montage of Ertz dominating on the field and a behind-the-scenes look at her training. “I just want to leave everything I have on the field,” says Ertz. Good training, the two-time World Cup champ continues, starts with good nutrition, including her go-to Chipotle order: steak, brown rice, black beans, veggies, and guacamole. (Yes, she knows it’s extra.)
