It’s High Energy Fun For ALDI, As Grocer Delivers “You Can’t Overcook Christmas” Work Via BMF

Arguably Australia’s most anticipated Christmas spot – BMF’s work for ALDI – has dropped and it’s probably the colourful spot of nonsense we all need after a difficult 2021.

Called “You can’t overcook Christmas” and set to the classic dance track Darude’s Sandstorm, ALDI is calling on Aussies to push the gravy boat out and get creative with their Christmas prep this year – from decorations to the big-day showstoppers.

Mark Richardson, director of marketing, ALDI Australia, commented: “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.

“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,” Richardson said.

ALDI worked with key agency partners to bring this year’s Christmas campaign message to market. The integrated campaign, targeting five million grocery buyers, will run across key media channels: TV, Radio, outdoor, digital, social, catalogue and POS.
