I’ve followed the Die Antwoord saga pretty closely, and I still have no idea what’s going on. From what I gather, it’s a real hip-hop experiment created by people who come from a performance art background. So it might be kinda fake, but the joke isn’t super obvious, so it probably isn’t entirely fake, but maybe it’s real and fake at the same time, or whatever. I can’t explain it all. Read about it. The Internet exists for a reason.
Regardless, this video is probably the scariest thing I’ve seen this Halloween. If I was a kid today watching this on whatever kids watch videos on nowadays (brain screens? bathtub cams?), it would most definitely terrify me as much as Laurie Anderson’s performance on SNL actually did terrify me when I was a child. A performance that I would love to link to for comparison’s sake, but which does not seem to exist anywhere on the legal Internet.
