“Blink” Music: Die Antwoord ‘Ugly Boy’

So sorry that this is a day late, but we had a server crash yesterday. Yay! Such fun. Well, thanks to our tech team we are back up and running and with a brilliant (if delayed) Music Monday for you.

This is one of the mostly nutsly addictive tracks and videos that I’ve witnessed in quite some time. How bonkers are these two? Any yet this completely works. Die Antwoord (Afrikaans for ‘The Answer’) consists of Ninja and ¥o-Landi Vi$$er and this South African group’s striking style is apparently inspired by a movement called ‘zef’ that is roughly the South African version of ‘chav’ apparently. ¥o-Landi Vi$$er is quoted as saying, “It’s associated with people who soup their cars up and rock gold and shit. Zef is, you’re poor but you’re fancy. You’re poor but you’re sexy, you’ve got style.” Like it.

This video has also gained momentum through the big name cameo appearances in this video including Cara Delevingne, Jack Black and the archetypal ‘Ugly Boy’ himself, Marilyn Manson. This is genius.

You may not get it on first listen, but bear with it and just give it a few run throughs. I can pretty much promise you’ll get as attached to this as we all have at Blink Towers.
