Aldi: Play among the stars

by Syd Briscoe

Aldi: “Space Station” - 1 min 45s

Aldi head to space in this amusing German ad which illustrates the importance of planning ahead. A group of astronauts has been mistakenly sent on a mission with inadequate supplies, but mission HQ has a creative solution to their culinary woes...

The absurdity of the premise works well here, as the astronauts gleefully float around a fully-stocked Aldi in their spacesuits. The performances are fun - the grizzled mission commander on the ground, in particular - and the lighthearted Russian gags land well. A well balanced spoof of space movies - fun frivolity for the festive season.
