Aldi gets cheeky over a cup of coffee

SYDNEY - Aldi, the supermarket chain with the consistently quirky advertising, does not disappoint in a cheeky new campaign for its Expressi capsule coffee machine, via creative agency BMF.

The new campaign aims to break category convention with a focus on Expressi’s diverse range of blends, BMF said. The 60-second television spot is supported by cinema, outdoor and online.  

“We thought we could talk about a premium coffee product and take it to somewhere a little more refreshing by injecting Aldi’s quirky tone of voice,” said Carlos Alija and Laura Sampedro, ECDs at BMF.

BMF partnered with South African comedy director Trevor Clarence and Sydney-based fashion photographer Simon Lekias for the campaign.

“We have managed to create a campaign that feels unique to the Expressi brand whilst continuing the tongue-in-cheek ALDI tone we've been developing over the last few years,” said a spokesperson for ALDI.
