In a video posted on his Twitter account, Rafael Lacava, governor of the northern Carabobo state, can be seen standing next to his empty pool issuing furious threats towards Venezuela's main water company and giving them 24 hours to fix the problem.
"Here is the pool, in the governor's house and there is no water. THERE IS NO WATER!" shouts the 49-year-old who is known for his eccentricity which has seen him pushing a plan to keep the streets free of criminals with his customized "Draculamobile."
"If by tomorrow evening, I don't see any improvement.. the Draculamobile is coming for you," he says menacingly, pointing at the camera.
"I'm warning you!"
