Unwell Irish dad makes daughter film Aldi middle aisle so he can walk down it virtually
He wasn't missing his weekly walk down the middle aisle.
Irish dads are absolutely gas and this dad is no exception.
This week a young Irish woman posted to TikTok about her father's very Irish dad request and we are in absolute stitches.
In the viral TikTok video (which I'll link here) Philippa Cahill explains that her dad is currently self isolating because he is waiting on Covid test results.
According to Cahill, within the first day of being in self isolation her dad got in touch with her and asked for a small favour.
What was the favour?
To film herself walking down the middle aisle of Aldi of course;
"The one thing that he asked me to do he was like 'Philippa will you do me a small favour and go to Aldi and go to the middle aisle and just video everything in the aisle?
Just walk through it really slowly and video it and send it that video to me so I can watch it and pretend that I'm there.'"
She went on to say that he was only in isolation for less than 24 hours at that stage but he still really needed an Aldi middle aisle fix badly;
"This man had been isolating for maybe 24 hours and was like 'I need to be in the middle aisle of Aldi, why am I not in the middle aisle of Aldi?'"
In fairness to her dad I don't think there's anything quite like the middle aisle of Aldi, it's an experience and a half.
What will you pick up? A wheelbarrow? A tea pot shaped like an owl? Who knows?
Honestly though, his request has to be one of the purest things that I've heard in a long time and I hope he really enjoyed his Aldi video and that he can be reunited with his beloved middle aisle soon.
