‘Zef Side’ by Die Antwoord

So I tried really hard not to post this video, but this song has been stuck in my head for days now and I need to deal with it. This South African group is called Die Antwoord, which is made up of Ninja, Yo-landi Vi$$er and DJ Hi-Tek. They make next level beats and are one of the best things I’ve seen in a while. My roommate thinks it’s like an Ali G kind of thing, but I’m not convinced.

What I do know is that they need to make these characters into a movie and call it Gummo 2. You could have Jeremy Scott play Ninja, Chloe Sevigny as Yo-landi Vi$$er and that Hurley guy from Lost as DJ Hi-Tek. Then all you need to do is grab Harmony and some old 35mm cameras and fly to South Africa and boom, instant success.

On a side note, I think it’s weird that there are no aliens in South Africa now that I’ve seen District 9. I kept imagining prawns to be lurking in the backgrounds of some of those shots. Oh god is that racist?
