Ugh. I'll admit that I first heard Die Antwoord via the Fatty Boom Boom video, which is one of the greatest music videos I've ever seen, next to Chris Cunningham's Windowlicker. They've always been more style over substance in my opinion. If I was younger, I would've felt the same way with Windowlicker: when I first heard the song I was like "eh.." in comparison to everything I'd already heard. But the video made it work.
So that's my little analogy, and I didn't notice the Aphex Twin underpants the first time I watched it. I'm not sure what this is trying to be: if it's a parody I'm not sure what it's trying to parody, and if it's serious I feel bad for everyone involved in the video, especially Richard James. BUT, it is probably the best song of theirs' I've heard so far.
And give them one hit song and we'll all remember them the way we remember Chumbawumba
My fave off this ablum is "Sex" for sure. Followed by this. There is no album version of "Sex" to submit though, just speeded up version that are not as good on YT.
