Die Antwoord Are Promoting Their New Video With Blurbs From Aphex Twin and Damien Hirst
Die Antwoord have shared the video for “Fat Faded Fuckface,” from their 2016 album, Mount Ninji and da Nice Time Kid. It was directed by vocalist Yolandi Visser, and its arthouse horror film spin on rap video excess is par for the course for Die Antwoord visuals, with a handful of naked women added.
The group took their winking bravado to another level on the press release that accompanied the video, adding praiseful quotes from the likes of Aphex Twin, Damien Hirst, and William Gibson, as if “Fat Faded Fuckface” were a bestselling novel or blockbuster film.
