Aldi releases Home Alone inspired Christmas advert featuring Kevin The Carrot
| Last updated
Aldi has just released their 2022 Christmas ad and it's Home Alone themed.
The supermarket giant is known for its legendary festive ads, and it looks like this year is no different.
In the latest edition, we see Kevin the Carrot left all alone for the holidays but he quickly learns to entertain himself.
We can even see the carrot watching the footie, a nod to the World Cup taking place in the winter months.
He even makes a plan to stand against intruders, 'with traps he'd carefully planned' but they backfire and he soon becomes a 'snowman's nose'.
But Kevin is soon 'overjoyed' to be reunited with his family again and honestly, the ad has us wanting to call up our loved ones.
And people loved it, with one viewer saying: "The Aldi Christmas adverts, are the only ones that give me that warm festive feeling. Kevin the carrot is wonderful. I never thought i would care so much, about a carrot."
While another added: "I always look forward to hearing about Kevin at Christmas. My favourite advert."
A third was a little jealous of Kevin's new digs: " Want to know why a carrot lives in a better house than me (brilliant ad though)."
And one was so excited about the ad that they were basically shouting from the chimney tops: "OMG MY FAVOURITE CHRISTMAS AD OF 2022 BRILLENT AD ALDI 100% THE BEST. [sic]"
The full ad comes after Aldi released another festive clip as a reference to the upcoming world cup.
But his worry soon turns to excitement when he sees Ronaldi - Cristiano Ronaldo in the form of a lemon - who says 'let's do this' in Portuguese.
The clip then launches into a nod to Nike's iconic 1998 World Cup advert in which Brazil's footballing squad have a kick around at an airport.
However, in a twist by the retailer, a number of famous players have been reimagined as food, including Lionel Messi as Messy the blueberry, Kylian Mbappé as MmmBap (a bap, of course) and Wayne Rooney as Macarooney.
In the last scene, we see Diego Maradona as Marrowdona as he passes the ball back to Kevin, who misses the score and his plane.
He watches on in dismay as the team take off from the airport before the teaser finishes, telling us there's going to be more to this story in the coming weeks.
Aldi ended its Nike tribute by saying: "Christmas. Let's do it."
