Where’s Kevin the Carrot? Aldi’s festive advert teases new animated banana character called Ebanana Scrooge who angrily declares ‘I hate Christmas’ after being left behind by Santa

  • Animated banana character Ebanana Scrooge makes debut in Aldi’s Christmas ad tease
  • Tease video can be seen on Aldi Twitter, Instagram and Facebook 
  • Supermarket giant’s festive ad launches on Thursday 11th November










Aldi has teased its iconic Christmas ad on social media today – featuring an all-new animated banana character called Ebanana Scrooge. 

However, it doesn’t feature Kevin the Carrot, the loveable character who has taken centre stage in the last five Christmas campaigns.

The new 20-second clip shows a child Ebanana patiently waiting for Santa, snuggled up next to a mince pie in front of a roaring log fire on Christmas Eve. 

A mystery hand then appears and takes the mince pie, leaving the banana behind – at which the upset Ebanana cries, ‘Santa, wait…why didn’t he take me?’

Just before the teaser clip fades, Ebanana jumps up and angrily declares, ‘I hate Christmas…’ – leaving viewers wondering what happens next in this festive tale.

But for those eager to know whether the nation’s favourite plucky vegetable, Kevin the Carrot will return, there’s not long to wait. 

Aldi revealed the trailer online ahead of the full advert, which will be revealed across national TV and online on Thursday 11th November.

And the advert teaser has caused quite a stir online, with one even sharing the hashtag #justiceforkevin.

‘This is going to “split” opinions,’ joked one, while a second penned: ‘We still love Kevin in this house!!!’

A third added: ‘No way can I forget Kevin Carrot,’ while a fourth enthused: ‘I’m splitting hairs at the thought of this, it doesn’t a peel to me. We need our favourite bunch of Carrots to to ripen up the day.’

Another commented: ‘I think the whole thing is bananas #JusticeForKevin.’

Elsewhere, a further noted: ‘Aldi, I have about 30 Kevin’s and friends, just think about how un a peeling a banana will look in there There’ll be riots!’

Last year, Aldi released a teaser showing Kevin the Carrot flying ‘Top Gun-style’, in a fighter jet escapade with co-pilot Turkey.

The release of the full advert revealed that he was joined by Oscar-winning actor Jim Broadbent who played Santa Claus, with the plucky vegetable trekking across the snow with a friendly hedgehog to reach his family before Christmas dinner. 

The previous year, 33million people tuned in to see Kevin the Carrot in Aldi’s Christmas advert which was crowned the most effective Christmas advert of 2019.
