Col.Gaddafi enjoys a water-gun fight with Robert Mugabe in a new TV advert for Nando’s. The lonely President of Zimbabwe reminisces about happier times spent with fallen tyrants in the Last Dictator Standing video, promoting the chicken restaurant’s six-pack meal.
The comical 46-second clip uses look-alike actors to show the ruthless leader fooling around with other dictators including Colonel Gaddafi and Saddam Hussein.
The commercial starts with Mugabe laying place settings at a dinner table, pausing as he picks up a card for Muammar Gaddafi.

He slips into a nostalgic daydream, remembering how the pair used to play fight with water guns, with the Libyan leader clutching a distinctive golden machine gun.
Another scene shows Mugabe and fallen Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein half-stripped to swimming trunks, gleefully making ‘sand angels’ on the beach.
The Zimbabwe leader is also shown giggling as he pushes South Africa’s apartheid-era president PW Botha on a swing, as Mary Hopkins’ ‘Those were the days’ rings out.

The advert ends with a glum-looking Mugabe sitting alone at his dinner table with the tagline “At this time of year, no one should have to eat alone.”
