Balladeer Mickey is a big hit

SINGER songwriter Mickey McConnell's latest song, celebrating the joys of shopping in budget German supermarkets has gone viral with upwards of 28,000 YouTube hits.
Once it was posted on Facebook and YouTube, the reaction was immediate.
It's an hilarious song all about Mickey's sudden conversion to the delights of shopping in Lidl and Aldi after his wife Maura sustained a leg injury and was incapacitated. Forced to fend for himself, he took to the German chains on his grocery travels only to return home with everything from powertools to 'wetsuits made in Japan'.
As recounted in the song, however, Mickey's credit card was subsequently binned by wifely order and his wanderings through the gilded aisles of Lidl and Aldi abruptly ended.
While the shopping fun might be over for Mickey, it's only just beginning for Lidl and Aldi as thousands more tune in to hear all about the diverse magic of the German shopping experience.
