Watch This Now: Die Antwoord – “Cookie Thumper”

“Twee ses? Twee sewe? Of is jy n ag bra?”

No rest for the Zef! After kicking goals in 2012 with sell-out tours, a  fun new LP in Ten$ion and some of the most talked-about videos of the year – including I Fink U Freeky and Fatty Boom Boom – the gruesome twosome have dropped a brand-new single, set to be on their third album in early 2014. Yeah, that’s a while off, isn’t it? Fortunately, the new video is just enough to keep us going until the fateful day arrives.

If you’ve come expecting some kind of standard, ordinary clip – firstly, what band are you thinking of?; and secondly, not even close. Focusing in on Yo Landi Vi$$er for the first time since the Rich Bitch video, we enter yet another slum of South Africa. YLV plays a seemingly-innocent orphan who’s fallen for a bad, bad boy who just got out of prison. You should duly note my use of the phrase “seemingly” – once the lights go out, all bets are off; and we’re getting freaky once again with confronting imagery and jittery choreography. Sure, our adventures with DA more or less end up being variations on a theme, but I’ll be damned if I’m not a sucker for it. I just keep coming back for more! Who knows, maybe you’re on the Zef side, too…
