Fast-Food Ad Features Brutal Dictators

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

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.
