Now Halloween is behind us and we’re into November, we’re starting to see Christmas ads everywhere. Aldi’s Christmas advert has caught our attention as it looks like they have taken inspiration from the famous Coca-Cola “Holidays are coming” advert.
The ad features the adorable Kevin the Carrot behind the wheel of the lit up orange truck.
There has been some backlash on social media and Aldi’s response was
“Our Christmas advertising campaigns are famous for capturing the excitement and anticipation of the festive season in a fun way. This year is no exception, using a sense of humour and Kevin the Carrot to capture the magic of families preparing for Christmas.”
We believe this is the first of a series of ads where we’ll find out what happens to Kevin the Carrot as we get closer to Christmas.
Aldi UK on twitter said
“Make sure you keep watching to find out what happens to our favourite carrot”
