Nando’s South Africa dines out on dictators

And they’re all in this new ad from Nando’s South Africa and agency Black River FC: Robert Mugabe, Colonel Gaddafi, Chairman Mao (not a very convincing one), Saddam Hussein and South Africa’s very own late, unlamented PW Botha.

It’s not the greatest ad ever but it’s rather refreshing to see advertisers taking the piss out of departed (and hopefully about-to-be departed in the case of Mugabe) political leaders.

Quite brave in South Africa too where the government’s current attitude to the media is hardly what you’d call liberal.
