BMF & Aldi: Hello Christmas Day exuberance

In the Christmas ad competition between Australia’s four major supermarkets, we have a resounding winner. The last to appear, Aldi’s You Can’t Overcook Christmas by BMF, has trumped the others. Yes, it follows the road most travelled this year internationally, with its promise of ending a dire year with the joy of Christmas. 2021 was not what anyone wished for. But BMF presents the joy of a “freedom” Christmas in its own very human, very relatable way. Forget pre-Christmas stress (or anything that preceded it), hello Christmas Day exuberance.

“After yet another lengthy period of disruption to ‘normal’ life, Aussies are getting back out into the real world with gusto. Shoppers are on the lookout for unique products or great deals that can act as an antidote to the dull ‘sameness’ of lockdowns and restrictions. In the lead-up to Christmas, we want to tap into post-lockdown excitement and show what many of us are feeling: this year is the year to go a bit bigger,” explained Mark Richardson, director of marketing, ALDI Australia. 

“To do this, we’ve created an emotive and upbeat Christmas campaign that is centred on the joy of letting loose. We hope that the You Can’t Overcook Christmas call to arms, together with Aldi’s prices and phenomenal range, will energise shoppers to create the best possible Christmas for family and friends this year.”

The campaign will run across TV, radio, outdoor, digital, social, catalogue and POS.
