Donald Trump and Admiral General Aladeen Feature in Dartz's Latest Commercial

You have to admit that there's too much common sense, too much "playing it safe" in the car-making world these days. Nobody's trying to take us by surprise anymore, and that's boring.

Now, as you may imagine, there are two ways you can do that: one is to create something truly spectacular, while the other is to make something absolutely ridiculous. Well, here is Dartz, the crazy Latvian armored-car manufacturer with an offering that easily covers both aspects.

We've talked about the Black Shark before after it's made its first appearance in Cannes back in 2014. Now, though, the company is getting ready for its commercial release, so it has launched a campaign that is probably the funniest parody we've seen in a while. It's got Sacha Baron Cohen, after all, so it couldn't be anything but funny and ridiculous.

If you remember, Mr. Cohen played Admiral General Aladeen in "The Dictator," a movie where he was the supreme leader of an imaginary North African country called Wadiya. He spent most of his time enjoying the company of various virgins, but he also shot his competitors to ensure winning in sporting events and did all sorts of other dictatorial things.

He was also driven around in a golden Dartz Prombron, the self-entitled "most expensive car in the world" and the perfect fit for a dictator in more ways than one. Not only is the Dartz Prombron heavily armored (B7 rating), but it's also absurdly expensive - it's well within the seven-figures realm.

For 2016, Dartz is promoting its new vehicle, the Black Shark, which is based on a Mercedes-Benz - just like any presidential car should. In this case, it's a GL-Class SUV, but we get the feeling not much of the German luxury off-roader is left intact. And, once again, Admiral General Aladeen is here to make sure people hear about Dartz's latest creation. There's also a cameo from Donald Drumpf, "Dictator of the U.S.A." played by the real Donald Trump, so take it from us, you'll be thoroughly entertained.
