Bobby Mugabe TV Ad Prompts Outrage

(Harare, Zimbabwe) A South African restaurant chain, Nando's, produced a television commercial showing Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe as the Last Dictator Standing.

The arguably hilarious ad prompted outrage among Mugabe's supporters in Zimbabwe.
The commercial for its six-piece chicken combo depicts Mr. Mugabe reminiscing about his times with departed dictators to the song Those Were the Days.

He is shown having a water-gun fight with Muammar Gaddafi, making sand angels with Saddam Hussein and riding in a tank with Idi Amin, before awakening from his dream to find himself at a dinner table, alone at Christmas….

Fearing violence against its staff at restaurants in Zimbabwe, Nando's pulled the ad.
