It's no surprise we hear they'll hook up with Harmony Korine for a project while in town.
We heard things. That's all I was sayin'. We heard things. But then Die Antwoord frontman Ninja went and did an interview with Pitchfork, in which he said the following:
We're doing a short film in a few weeks time with Harmony Korine that will screen at the Rotterdam Film Festival this January. [Korine] wrote the script and we made it a little more Zef. It's come out fuckin' wild. It's a short film called Wat Kyk Jy— which means "watcha lookin' at?"— which I tattooed onto my penis as well.
So ... Die Antwoord's Yolandi Vi$$er was offered the lead role in The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, and now her mate Ninja is performing the real-life role of The Boy With the Penis Tattoo. K. Anyhow, while we don't have many details past those above — and the ones we do have we're sitting on — I can most certainly tell you that when the dude who made this movie teams up with the people who made this the cover of their album, I imagine shit's going to get weird, perplexing and a very freaky sort of awesome. Look after the jump to see Die Antwoord's brand-new video for "Evil Boy," which was directed by Ninja and features Diplo getting punked by Yolandi, a girl with no nipples, Yolandi with eyeballs for nipples, several dozen weird, giant phallic objects, a very direct District 9 reference — D9's art director worked on the video — and a verse from guest rapper Wanga that's all about the evils of genital mutilation and homophobia in traditional African culture. (It's true.)
