Farming under attack: What do you think of the A&W Better Burger TV ad and Chipotle "Scarecrow" Video? Concerns?

If you have been watching TV lately you will be aware of the A&W Restaurant TV campaign that talks about their "Better Beef" burgers...No hormones or steroids.

 

In the USA, Chipotle Restaurants have been promoting a video and online game that negatively portrays modern food and agriculture production practices.

I will post the videos here in the case you have not had the chance to watch them.
