I know there is a lot of ironic self-deprecating music artists out there who sound dumb as a kind of in-joke with the audience, and then there are genuinely stupid people who just make it big based on being so painfully dumb. What really starts to trip me up is when there’s foreign aspects; add some exotic slang and fashion into the mish mash and I might actually think someone is as stupid as they sound. So when I watched Die Antwoord’s weird ass fashion and talking, I gotta say I thought it was some weird internet joke video.
Until the hook comes in, then you realize how brilliant the gag is. I still don’t know what Die Antwoord or Zef Side is, but I’m curious about what they’ll do next. Watch the vid after the jump
