Fast-Food Ad Features Brutal Dictators

In this Nando's commercial, dictators frolic around in sand and have water gun fights
Staff Writer

South Africa's chicken chain Nando's released this commercial recently, featuring a Robert Mugabe-look-alike mourning other dictator-look-alike friends. Called "Last Dictator Standing," the ad shows Mugabe's doppelganger in a water gun fight with a Qaddafi doppelganger, who's sporting a memorable gold watergun.

There's also shots of the two making sand angels, some playground swings, and a Titanic reference, coming to a close with Mugabe looking lonely and the message, "This time of year, no one should have to eat alone." Ironically, the fast-food chain only has one United States store in Washington D.C.
