Hugo Chavez's Death Gets the Bizarre Taiwanese Animation Treatment

hugochavezghost.jpg
Taiwan's NMATV is known for bizarre CGI takes on current events, but its take on the death of Hugo Chávez is bonkers even by the network's standards. It involves the Venezuelan president in ghost form, a devil-horned George W. Bush, the former pope in a Hawaiian shirt, and, of course, Martians in man-kinis being whipped by a capitalist fat cat.



The video notes that both "limousine liberals and petty dictators the world over" will be mourning the death of the autocrat but also says poor Venezuelans are "probably screwed" now that he's gone. Capitalists even break into citizens' homes and take their big-screen TV sets.

Such is the bizarre and confounding legacy of Hugo Chávez.
