Seoul: Mexican food chain Chipotle changed its name to Chicotle after BTS’ Jeon Jungkook was seen in a video calling the brand “Chicotle”.
In a video posted by BANGTANTV, BTS’s official YouTube channel, the band members can be seen on the sets of The Late Late Show with James Corden. The seven members were seen having lunch after filming for the Crosswalk concert. In the 2-minute clip, Jungkook can be seen opening a bowl of Chipotle and carefully inspecting the contents inside. “How do you eat that? What’s that, Chicotle?” he asked a member on set.
“I thought they said chocolate first,” J-Hope said. After a few seconds, they can be seen enjoying the lunch bowl. “I could eat this every day,” Jungkook added, taking a huge bite. Soon, other members such as Jin, Suga, and Jimin also joined in on the delicious lunch and seemed to be thoroughly enjoying the food.
Shortly after the video went viral, Chipotle changed its name to Chicotle on Twitter. They also took to the microblooging site to say hello to the ‘tannies’ on Sunday. “Tannies” is actually used to refer to BTS members as a whole by fans.
