Aldi has given customers on social media a taster of this year’s Christmas TV advert for the supermarket, confirming the return of Kevin the Carrot.
Following Kevin’s previous festive ad appearances – which have included him battling an evil fairytale parsnip and driving a lorry in last year’s cliffhanger – he will face a new challenge in the Leafy Blinders.
A ten second preview released on the supermarket’s social media accounts show a pack of animated Brummie sprouts wearing tweed caps advancing towards the camera.
One of the threatening veg is heard uttering: “We’re here to take back Christmas by order of the Leafy Blinders.”
A newspaper page bearing Kevin’s image then tears as it sweeps across a cobbled street in a bad omen for our orange hero. Will he meet his match in the miniature green gangsters?
The trailer is accompanied by the punning tagline: “Who are you ‘rooting’ for?”
Love Kevin and gang.
Fans have been impressed with the tease for the imminent festive campaign.
“Love Aldi’s Christmas adverts they are the best and love Kevin and gang,” wrote one viewer on YouTube.
“Outstanding! You are truly the best at Christmas adverts, can’t wait for the full version,” commented another.
Another person remarked on Twitter: “I think Aldi has won best Xmas advert already.”
However, one commenter objected: “Sinister sprouts in flat caps. No thanks. Not this year. You can keep it.”
Iceland have also previewed their Christmas advert online, featuring Elsa, Anna, Kristoff, Olaf and Sven from Frozen 2.
