Now this is a new - and potentially controversial - way to advertise a chicken joint. Nando's, a casual dining restaurant founded in South Africa, has just released a new commercial featuring lookalike versions of several dictators, all set to the song 'Those Were the Days' by Mary Hopkins. The company has restaurants all over the world - they've been in Canada since 1994 - but this ad originated in the South African market.
The whole thing is framed as a flashback, experienced by what appears to be Robert Mugabe as he remembers frolicking with Colonel Gadhafi, Saddam Hussein, Idi Amin and other brutal dictators, all of whom are now dead.
The tagline? No one should ever have to eat alone.
