Aldi Drops The Christmas Advert Teaser For 2020
Aldi has dropped the first look clip for the 2020 Christmas advert:
The 40 second clip shows Kevin the carrot in a plane with a turkey (no name as of yet). As they fly through the sky, they spot Santa.
In his excited state, the turkey says he's going to open the window (because that's a normal reaction) and instead hits the ejector button.
We can then hear the bird shout 'Kevin... KEVIN' the exact same as the mum from Home Alone. Then the nations favourite carrot sails through the sky thanks to a parachute.
In the caption of the video, Aldi wrote: "Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's both. And there's a carrot in the cockpit. #WhereIsKevin".
People have now started asking for a Kevin pilot toy and calling on the supermarket to start making a turkey toy as well.
Last year, shoppers queued down the streets when Aldi announced that they would be flogging a giant version of the much-loved toy.
Kevin was first introduced to the world back in the 2016 advertisement who has been sold as a cuddly toy over the past couple of years and for some reason is incredibly sought after.
Still, there is no denying his draw, as people up and down the land have been jubilantly celebrating the fruits/veg of their queuing on social media:

@AldiUK Just happened to be in Aldi buying kitchen towel at 8am. Ok, I admit it, I planned an early dash to acquire the greatest collection of carrot family characters. And sprouts have never been so popular, got the last one in store! :sweat_smile::tomato:#KevinTheCarrot #RussellSprout pic.twitter.com/IVQ6YkQ0Ix- Sue :eyes: (@Sue_Who) November 28, 2019

For some people that were inevitably left disappointed eBay was the answer. But unfortunately, the prices for a Kev were inflated.
Julie Ashfield, Managing Director of Buying from Aldi UK said: "We know our Kevin the Carrot soft toys and merchandise are incredibly popular with our customers and this year we increased the amount on offer.
"To give as many Kevin fans as possible the chance to buy the range, we have limited purchases to two soft toys per customer, but as with all of our Specialbuys products, once they're gone, they're gone."
