Nando's takes aim at dictators

2011-11-24 16:48
Cape Town – Fast food chain Nando's launched a new controversial festive campaign titled The Last Dictator on Thursday.

Nando's, a company known for finding a unique perspective on current affairs and contemporary issues, decided to focus on the downfall of dictators in 2011 for their latest campaign.

The central idea of the Nando's festive season campaign revolves around an African dictator, a dinner party he throws for some like-minded friends and his memory of the "good times".

Along with the TV ad, Nando's has also created a fully integrated campaign for the festive season that includes in-store activity and radio ads that will be bringing a famous voice to the airwaves.

    Good one Nandos, good one. The last dictator is Mugabe, but for how long? His days are numbered. Zimbabweans must revolt and demolish him and his South African puppets.

      Lara - 2011-11-24 18:54

      Maybe he'll choke on a Nando's chicken bone.

    Nandos should make an ad about te ANC DICTATORS.

      nadia.chotu - 2011-11-25 09:11

      and quickly too.... else it would be contrary to the provisions of the Secrecy ACT and then Nando's shareholders and directors would be imprisoned for 25 years!!

    Didn't realise that ol' PW was a dictator. Never even saw one article proclaiming him as one but what the heck..

      Klipkop - 2011-11-25 09:54

      I agree, am a little upset about that (PW) but then again i cannot afford Nandos anymore (over priced) so all good I guess.
