Those were the days, my friend. In a new commercial for the South African restaurant chain Nando's, Zimbabwean president Robert Mugabe is spending a lonely holiday without the company of former fellow dictator-friends. While setting the table, he remembers good times with South African former leader PW Botha, visits to the beach with Saddam Hussein, afternoons in the park with Muammar Gaddafi. The video ends by showing Mugabe sitting at the end of an empty table.
"This time of the year, no one should eat alone," the voice-over says.
Take a look at the bizarre commercial in the video below.
CORRECTION: This story wrongly identified former South African leader PW Botha as Nicolae Ceausescu from Romania. It has been corrected.
