Commercial Break: Aldi mock John Lewis for Christmas

26 November 2015

When John Lewis tried to make sentimental saps cry for Christmas with their man on the moon advert, it was inevitable that a load of people were going to parody it.

First off, we had the brilliant one which started off as cloying as the John Lewis affair, which ended up with nana going on the razz and having shots and kebabs and all sorts.

Watch that again here.

However, Aldi are now in on the action, trolling John Lewis with their own man on the moon take.

Returning to our screens is Jean Jones, the pensioner who appeared in the Aldi advert where she got stuck right into the gin. We won't give the game away before you watch this advert... but there is a telescope, and an old man who lives on the moon.

Jonathan Neale, joint managing director of corporate buying at Aldi, said: "Jean quickly became a national treasure for her love of our Oliver Cromwell London Dry Gin when she first appeared on screens in 2011. We're confident our customers will be excited by her return this Christmas."
