The countdown to Christmas has officially started and to celebrate, ALDI Australia today unveiled its 2019 Christmas campaign via incumbent creative agency BMF.

In this year’s Christmas TV commercial which airs from Sunday, November 3, ALDI Australia tells a story of generosity and togetherness when a little old lady’s Christmas goes from lonely to joyful – all thanks to a magical fairytale ham.

Shot in Tasmania, the campaign brings to life the Australian spirit of sharing the festive cheer with everyone around you.

The integrated campaign launched on Sunday, with the hero brand film running on TV and longer formats running online, supported by radio, OOH, catalogue, in store POS, website and social.

Watch the TVC below:

BMF creative directors Dantie van der Merwe and David Fraser said: “Ham is often the main event at Christmas lunch. And, in the week after, every time you open the fridge there seems to be ham leftovers staring back at you. A pork prodigy felt like the right blend of truth and fiction for this year’s More the Merrier Christmas story.”

Aisling Colley, BMF group account director added: Our long-standing creative platform ‘The More the Merrier’ is the perfect expression of generosity at Christmas, and enables us to show Aussies they don’t have to compromise at this time of year. It perfectly captures the Australian spirit (and the effect of a magical ham), whilst demonstrating ALDI’s promise to Aussies at this festive time of year – a surprising range of exceptional products, at the lowest possible prices.”

ALDI Australia marketing director, Mark Richardson said: “Christmas is the time of year that Australians want to spoil their families, however there can be a misconception that to get the best quality Christmas feast, presents and experience, you need to spend big.

“The never-ending ham in our 2019 Christmas campaign is a sentiment to the value you can get at ALDI.

“With great prices across our entire Christmas range, you can afford to spoil your guests with our award-winning Australian hams, European sweets and delicacies, decorations and gifts on any budget.”
