Chipotle’s new buy one, get one free gimmick is the fun distraction you need right now.

Because let’s be real — when don’t you need a fun distraction?

Instead of trying to get to the next level of Candy Crush, point your smartphone or browser to Chipotle’s new SAVOR.WAVS promo.

It’s an interactive program that asks you to assemble your favorite Chipotle order by clicking on photos of the ingredients.

The catch: Each ingredient is represented by a sound. Put them together and it’s a beautiful, complex piece of music, much like the flavors Chipotle wants you to enjoy.

Oh, and after you fiddle around with SAVOR.WAVS, you get a coupon for a buy one, get one free offer.

How to Get a Chipotle BOGO Coupon From the Wu-Tang Clan

RZA, of Wu-Tang Clan fame, worked with Chipotle to create beats and sounds associated with each of Chipotle’s 51 ingredients.

(Fun fact: The first Chipotle location opened in 1993, the same year Wu-Tang Clan released its first studio album.)

Choose your favorite combination of ingredients — here is one instance when guacamole does not cost extra — and enjoy the flavorful tune you’ve composed.

Chipotle will play your song back with “beautiful visuals also inspired by the ingredients,” according to a release, which will make you think of a fresh garden (and probably what you’re going to get for lunch).

The promotion is about how food and music can both bring people closer together, but RZA’s full composition — you can see it performed by orchestral musicians — is truly catchy and enjoyable on its own.

Once you’ve enjoyed your tune, enter your phone number to receive a text message with your Chipotle BOGO offer, which is good for burrito, burrito bowl, salad or taco orders.

Chipotle sends you a text message to claim your BOGO offer through a link that opens in your mobile browser, so if you don’t have a smartphone, you are fresh out of luck.

You only have until Aug. 31, 2017, to use your offer link, so don’t forget about it after you spend a few minutes mixing and matching fun sounds.
