Dylan Lewis Goes Viral With ALDI Parody Track

7 February 2023 | 11:40 am | Mary Varvaris

The bongos in Lewis' video were in ALDI's recent Music Special Buys.

Aussie television host and last year's I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! winner, Dylan Lewis, went viral on Instagram overnight after one of his posts received over 32,000 views in just 22 hours.

The post is a parody video entitled Bongos And Bread, a parody video about ALDI. What's funnier still, the bongos featured in his video were in ALDI's recent Music Special Buys. Check out the shenanigans below.

Lewis's voice is pumped through a vocal filter resembling autotune as he holds up Helgas' sliced bread and a box of bongos. "Bongos and bread from Aldi. Am I right though? Always leaving there with more than I meant to," the caption reads. 

"What have you accidentally left Aldi with? I once came home with an inflatable jumping castle! And I do love their music stuff. And this is totally not sponsored. Good. Different." He also posted numerous hashtags, including #BongosAndBreadFromAldi, #NotSponsored, #NotSponsoredYet and #NotAnAd.

Lewis is, of course, famed for previously fronting the likes of Recovery and Video Hits and presented on Double J while playing in The Haploids.

“I guess having watched the series, yes, I’ve got a lot of fear now about going in there,” Lewis said in his Just Before The Jungle interview early last year.

“Having watched it I know what’s going to be in there and I don’t like it. What am I doing? I don’t like heights, bugs, eating yucky body parts with hairs on them. I don’t like germs, I don’t like strangers. And here it all is, in one place. And it’s where I’m going.”

In 2020, Lewis reunited with his mates Jane Gazzo and Leigh Whannel for a one-off Recovery 'We Love The '90s' bushfire relief fundraiser.

The former ABC hosts appeared at Brunswick's Spotted Mallard on 5 February 2020 for the We Love The 90's Fundraiser, which featured a "mix of q&a’s, quizzes, music and plenty of '90s nostalgia".

Special guests on the night included Kevin Mitchell (Jebediah), Jodie J Hill (better known to Recovery fans as ScaryAnne Kennerly) and DJ JNett.

All funds raised from the night went to The Fire Relief Fund For First Nations Communities and Wildlife Victoria.

Lewis sat down with us in 2019 to discuss his best and worst Recovery interviews. Check them out here.
