This Snowy Village Dreams of an Aussie Christmas in Fun Holiday Spot

Aldi Argues Christmas Is Just Perfect in the Southern Hemisphere

Published on

Editor's Pick
BMF Sydney continues its humorous campaign for Aldi Australia in this holiday spot, which contrasts the balmy "Aussie Christmas" with the traditional Northern-hemisphere holiday images we're all familiar with. The story centers on Johan, a villager in some unspecified snowy land who returns from Australia and regales the shivering villagers with wild tales of kangaroos, surfing and cricket, and most damningly: Summer Christmas. When the village elders rush to his home armed with torches for a confrontation, they're converted by that most Aussie of food items -- a barbecued prawn. Directed by Gary Freedman of Glue Society, it's all amusingly done.
