Now that Moe's Southwest Grill has taken to calling its free queso day "Quesopalooza," it's entirely logical that it would build a playable electric guitar out of a giant tortilla chip.

No wait, that's totally insane. No wonder this spot is so much fun!

"We started talking about how cool it would be to create an actual guitar out of chips," says Moe's creative director Brandon Friedman. "Then we said, what if it could actually play? And finally, we felt like we needed to give it that extra rock touch by smashing it, which gave us the perfect transition to promote the queso and the event."

Moe's called on Atlanta Props to construct three real chip guitars, and the man doing the Pete Townshend job on it is their main prop expert.
