Last year over the holidays, Australian grocer Aldi released a brutally honest ad about the stress people endure to make around-the-table magic happen. This year, it's focusing on a very different annoyance—Americans.

Here's a refreshingly honest Christmas ad from from Australia, in which supermarket chain Aldi acknowledges that we aren't all swimming in hugs and beautifully wrapped presents.
