I just don't get it!! He's a carrot! Carrots are not particularly Christmassy. He would have rotted away since last year. And I didn't like him then either. Dd likes him, and doesn't understand why I don't. Apparently I am weird. Opinions

Yanbu, it’s another overhyped Christmas ad designed to pull at your heartstrings to get your money, I cringe every time one of these ads come on as they seem a bit desperate and pandering. I am a bitter old cynic though grin

I don’t like it either. This years one is practically the same as last years anyway

I don't like the carrot either!

I love the train but wish they'd chosen something a bit cuter rather than an old carrothmm

All the christmas ads are bloody nauseating.

Well I love Kevin <shrug>

Aww. I know someone who helps makes these adverts... so I kinda like them.

YABU! He is the only good christmas advertisement out so far!

It's my favourite one this year. Better than the JL one.

All I can see is a pea-type premature ejaculation.

JL one is a bag of wank.

And no one provided a link yet??

The Kevin the carrot is better than the JL monster!

Debenhams my favourite ad this year, don't mind the carrot but it's a little meh

I remember the good old days when Christmas adverts were full of joy and fun rather than these now which are designed to make people cry.

For that reason Kevin the carrot can stay as at least it has a bit of fun and humour in it.

I have had enough of all the adverts and it's only 12/11. They are ok once, but again and again it all gets a bit hmm. Not sure they make anyone want to go to those particular stores either.

Chasingsquirrels Sun 12-Nov-17 08:20:27

The ds's and I saw this yesterday and thought it was funny - had no idea what it was advertising then were bemused that it was Aldi. We'd clearly not seen the before, so didn't know it's a running theme, or that he had a name.

insancerre Sun 12-Nov-17 08:22:41

It's dire

LynetteScavo Sun 12-Nov-17 08:24:22

When the carrots face appears it looks like it's rotting. It's bloody awful.

And the pea/pee bit is just cringe.

aSleepyPrincess Sun 12-Nov-17 08:25:45

I love all the Christmas ads, saddo that I am. Kevin is cute in his own way grin

JonSnowsWife Sun 12-Nov-17 08:25:52

FWIW. The man on the moon JL ad cost about £8m to make.
The Moz the monster one this year probably wasn't too much cheaper than that.

So Aldi have been quite clever I suppose and probably spent a 1/3 of what JL has. It was nice to see an ad recycled IMO.

NancyDonahue Sun 12-Nov-17 08:36:09

They're just all trying too hard.. and failing. Customers generally want good value and good service, not flashy expensive ads. I hardly watch ads anyway as I record a lot of TV and skip past.

I remember the glory days of the woolies ads which actually showed products and prices!

I love kevin he’s ace

fartyghost Sun 12-Nov-17 08:47:00

Is it a teenage carrot?

NoFuckingRoomOnMyBroom Sun 12-Nov-17 09:20:38

I liked it last year but think this year it's shite.
JL is ok, best one is M&S.
