Aldi releases a Home Alone-inspired Christmas advert

Giving Kevin McCallister a run for his money! Aldi releases an adorable Home Alone-inspired Christmas advert starring Kevin The Carrot

  • Aldi has released a Christmas advert inspired by festive classic Home Alone 
  • Kevin The Carrot misses the flight to Paris and has to spend Christmas alone 
  • Grows scared when someone tries to break into house so throws Christmas feast
  • It’s revealed it was Santa who was trying to get into the home, and Kevin is reunited with his family who have run back from the airport to get him  

Aldi has once again re-invented a festive classic for their Christmas advert this year. 

The discount supermarket has released a joyful vegetable version of Home Alone, with Kevin the Carrot replacing the character Kevin McCallister as the hero who’s forced to spend the holidays by himself. 

After his wife and their baby carrots leave for Paris without him, Kevin makes the most of his time at home, but is eventually scared when an intruder tries to get into his house. 

In an homage to the original movie, Kevin hatches a plan to keep the mysterious invader at bay, including throwing a Christmas feast and lighting up the house with decorations. 

The whimsical advert, which will premiere at 8:30pm tonight during the centre break of Aldi’s Next Big Thing on Channel 4, also highlights the work of the app Neighbourly, which is helping British families in need throughout the holidays.

In the sweet advert, Kevin’s wife Katie is seen in the plane with their children, Baby, Chantenay and Jasper, before she realises that her husband is missing and screams ‘Kevin,’ in an homage to the Home Alone movie from 1990. 

Back at home, Kevin is shown watching a football match – possibly the 2022 World Cup – and relaxing. 

But his downtime is interrupted when he hears an intruder falling down the chimney’s shaft. 

Kevin grows scared, and prepares a plan to get rid of the man who keeps trying to enter his home.

He throws a dinner party, and props a balloon full of water above the French windows of his living-room, which stops the intruder in his tracks. 

Kevin also tries to connect all the house’s fairy lights together, but the plan backfires, and Kevin is ‘fried,’ with one of the tree’s decoration calling him a ‘roasted carrots.’

Eventually, a final mishap sees Kevin escape the house and landing right into a snowman outside his home. 

Thankfully, he is rescued by Santa, as it is revealed it was him all along who was trying to get into the house to deliver his presents. 

Meanwhile, Kevin’s family have returned to their home and run to him, with a worse-for-wear Kevin happy to be spending the festive period with his loved ones.

As he hugs his wife, he jokes: ‘Sorry about Paris, at least we saw the Trifle Tower.’ 

Adam Zavalis, Marketing Director at Aldi UK, said: ‘Christmas celebrates the joy of being with loved ones and this year more than ever we all need a bit of light entertainment as we celebrate the season together.

‘And it wouldn’t be the festive season without Kevin the Carrot on our TV screens, and this year’s Yuletide performance is sure to get the nation shouting “KEVIN!” as we welcome him back for the seventh year,’ he added. 

Aldi teased their Christmas advert over the weekend, with a comedy ad which referenced the upcoming World Cup in Qatar, pays homage to Nike’s classic ‘Airport 98’ commercial.

Just as in the sporting giant’s now retro advert, Aldi’s reimagined version showed a kickabout taking place in an airport waiting lounge. 

However, instead of starring famous players like Ronaldo, this clip features a family of carrots, including Kevin, who is joined by his loved ones.
