Venezuela's Hugo Chavez Joins Che In Heaven In Animated Ad

  • 07/12/2013 01:42 PM EDT

A minute-long advertisement on Venezeulan TV shows the recently deceased leader arriving in heaven, where he's greeted by an animated crew of Latin American freedom fighters, political leaders, and his grandmother. 

Chavez, Venezeula's firey and divisive socialist leader, passed away after a months-long struggle with cancer. He was 58. The ad, celebrating Chavez's legacy, is part of the presidential campaign of Nicolas Madura, who was Chavez's vice president and hopes to replace him.
