Kevin The Carrot – Aldi Christmas Advert 2016

Kevin The Carrot Kevin The Carrot is Aldi’s 2016 Christmas advert, and is at least a step-up from John Lewis’ Buster The Boxer ad.

Jim Broadbent narrates an alternate version of Twas The Night Before Christmas, properly titled A Visit from St. Nicholas published without an author’s name in 1823, yet later claimed by Clement Clarke Moore in 1837.

It’s clearly cheaper and certainly shorter than the John Lewis one, as this clocks in at just a minute. It’s quite amusing but won’t set the world on fire. Still, at least it didn’t make me vomit like that other one. And it doesn’t feature a horrible twee song, either.

Check out the advert below and click on the Kevin the Carrot picture above for the full-size version.

    This advert for me captures the imagination, it shown that Christmas is not just the whole mass marketed to death side of things and also captures the imagination of the younger generation with the appearance of Rudolph and the jolly red fella.
