Kellogg's targets 'copycats' with sausage butty-eating Aldi actor

The star of Aldi's ad for its low fat cereal appears in a Kellogg's film dressed in a skin-tight leotard eating his real breakfast, a sausage butty, before being joined by his girlfriend, the Special K girl.

Kellogg’s is running the campaign to promote its secret Special K recipe and hit back at Aldi’s ‘copycat’ cereal, which was advertised by dressing up a man in red women’s clothing to spoof the Special K advertising.
