I used to kinda hate Die Antwoord
because I thought they were scary. Then I had the chance to shoot them from the photo pit at Bonnaroo and just became obsessed. The South African rap duo has a complete DGAF attitude, puts on an insane stage show and in their new video for "Ugly Boy," assembled an all-star cameo cast including, Marilyn Manson
, Dita Von Teese, Jack Black, The ATL twins, Cara Delevingne
, and Flea, complete with disturbing and creepy imagery full of blood, blacked out eyes and stares into the camera that make your skin crawl.
Directed by Die Antwoord's Ninja, the camera work, and artistry of the video is oddly beautiful and perfect. Yolandi Vi$$er is done up to look like a black angel, while Ninja is a bloodied up boxer. Sure it's confusing and there is no sense to be made of it, but it's still fucking awesome.
