Aldi’s ‘precedented’ prices continue through these ‘unprecedented times’ in latest spot

In these unprecedented times, Aldi is making its ‘precedented’ low prices known to Australians.

A new TVC shows a woman returning home from the shops, only to be interrupted by a live television broadcast on a helicopter asking if she bought toilet paper at an ‘unprecedented price during these unprecedented times’.

The TVC marks a shift in tone for supermarkets in the COVID-19 era. The film is a tongue in cheek look at the struggles the supermarket industry has faced since the crisis began including pressure on supply chains pushing the price of goods up and the disappearance of toilet paper from shelves.

The campaign was made by BMF. The agency has held Aldi’s creative account for over 17 years.

The campaign will run across TV, outdoor, in store, digital, social and in catalogues.

In August last year, BMF hired Kinga Papp as group strategy director for the Aldi account.
