Aldi: “Leafy Blinders” - 70s

Kevin the Carrot makes his triumphant return in Aldi's 70" Christmas film, and the brand have sneaked in two pop culture references for the price of one. Perhaps astutely realising that a outright Peaky Blinders parody might be a little dark for the season, things launch into full 'The Greatest Showman' territory once Kevin escapes the flat cap-wearing sprouts' clutches.

The CG vegetable's cover of Robbie Williams' 'Let Me Entertain You' is a touch jarring (mainly because of the difference between his singing and speaking voices), but some droll festive lyrics and food-based shenanigans still ensures good value for all ages. Mind you, the Leafy Blinder stuck at the top of the tent may disagree.
