Watch Willie Nelson Cover Coldplay

Entertainment Aug. 31, 2011 AT 2:05PM

Coldplay sometimes makes being Coldplay look so easy that everybody thinks they can do it.

I mean, Justin Timberlake, Avril Lavigne, Robyn, Weezer and Natasha Bedingfield have all tried and done an OK job. But I give a pass to Willie Nelson. The country legend, 78, just recorded his own version of the British band's "The Scientist" for a new stop-motion animated film short produced by Chipotle Mexican Grill. Plus, the video has a cause, depicting the harmful effects of industrialized farming, a cause known to be near and dear to Nelson's heart. Check out the clip above and buy the song (with proceeds benefiting Chipotle's Cultivate Foundation to support sustainable agriculture) here.
