Weird but beautiful
13 December 2012 | by engel-70See all my reviews

I enjoyed this so much, being a fan of the weird and obscure zone of the youtubes (where I found this) and being a great fan of Die Antwoord. How can this be so weird, like most of their musical clips (check: I fink u freaky) and yet so cute? I think they nailed exactly what their music stands for in this clip. White "low life South African trash" combined with a great dose of humor, self-reflection and musical talent. They have an originality that's unique these days. No surprise that(what i've heard) they're speaking with David Lynch about making a movie. In addition to the reviewer before me; They're not German! They're South African. Their Language, mostly used in their songs and interviews and not much spoken in this flick, is "Afrikaans" which is kind of old Dutch sometimes combined with some English words. Colonial thing from the Netherlands, way back. To native English speakers it may sound like German, but it's really like comparing English to French...Believe me I know. I'm Dutch. Anyway, back on topic I really like these guys and their weirdness and I enjoyed this cute little eeriness (Is that a word?) they made!
