    Oh boy. Where do I start with this one. Perhaps with a warning to be careful at work with it?

    Die Antwoord, South Africa's finest in zef (a South African counter-cultural movement that's more or less equivalent to hipsters minus the trust funds, at least as far as I can tell) styled hip-hop, has released a music video for their tune "Evil Boy" featuring Diplo and South African rapper Wanga. First of all, there's more phallic recreations than you can possibly imagine, which is especially disturbing given that female vocalist Yo-Landi Vi$$er sounds approximately eight years of age and is terrifying. I'm sure Freud would have a heyday with this one.

    Then there's the awkward English translation of Wanga's Afrikaans verse. I won't spoil it for you, but deep commentary, it ain't. There's all sorts of other zany, absurd stuff going on as well, but this one really has to be seen to be believed, so I'll stop.

    There is no way in hell we're putting it up on the site. See the video here.

    Die Antwoord are currently counting down to the re-release of their self-released debut $0$ on Interscope, in four days and thirteen and a half hours as of this writing. They are also kicking off a US and Canadian tour on October 12th (the same day as the album release) that will last through the end of the month. -peter menniti
