They're both turgid BS designed to tug the strings of the nation, crassly. Very, very crassly.

A "p-take" is UK regional slang for the little-known challenge of stealing low-value products from major supermarkets. Gangs of youths compete to steal the lowest value items and a small can of peas is very affordable at 15 English pennies.
It's almost impossible to beat someone who's got the peas hence "p-take."
Taking the piss is a Commonwealth term meaning to take liberties at the expense of others, or to be unreasonable. It is often used to mean (or confused with) taking the piss out of, which is an expression meaning to mock, tease, ridicule, or scoff. It is also not to be confused with "taking a piss", which refers to the act of urinating. Taking the Mickey (Mickey Bliss, Cockney rhyming slang) or taking the Michael is another term for making fun of someone. These terms are most widely used in the United Kingdom, Ireland, South Africa, New Zealand and Australia.

The misses and I have just seen the new ALDI ad on TV. I don't know what to say. They have called it a parody to the John Lewis ad, but it's a blatant p take. Even the 2 telescopes are John Lewis and ALDI. I thought the John Lewis ad was actually kind of heart warming, but to see the ALDI one just annoys me big time.
Sorry, but just had to get that off my chest.
