Die Antwoord - (X Music TV's inaugural post)

X Music TV presents music videos by Die Antwoord

This is the very first ever post to X Music TV on August 13, 2017.

X Music TV is proud to present the visionary music and film making act known as Die Antwoord. The unconventional group is a couple (unmarried) from South Africa. Although they are considered by most people to be in the music business, they are the cream of the crop in the horror movie business too.

The girl is Yolandi. Her full name is Yolandi Visser, often shown as ¥o-landi Vi$$er. Her male counterpart, whose real name is Watkin Tudor Jones, uses Ninja as his stage name.

Their daughter, who goes by her real name, Sixteen Jones, has appeared in Die Antwoord music videos since a very young age and has gone on to achieve musical and modeling success of her own.

This act is unique, creative and genius on so many levels that they defy description, so we won't attempt that.

The first selection below is not as much of a music video as much as it is a short film, which is rare but not uncommon for the group, who has at least one other great short where they play characters in wheelchairs.

This one below was directed by ¥o-landi Vi$$er. Sixteen Jones (a girl in real life) does a great job playing a boy named "Lil Tommy", with Jack Black playing "Big Tommy".

The art director for this short was photographer Roger Ballen, who is a great part of the genius behind this and other cinematic and photographic work for Die Antwoord that he has participated in.

The next video is for the song called Love Drug that goes with the image at the top of this post. It's their most recent full blown music video for the summer of 2017.

This next video to their song titled Ugly Boy is another excellent one, with many cameos including Flea, Marilyn Manson, Dita Von Teese and many others.

The next two videos are to a pumping song that the group released in 2012 called I Fink U Freaky. The first version is the promo or trailer. The first image is of Sixteen Jones when she was still a single digit. And, Yolandi is the one who eats the beating heart.

Here is their music pumping to one of their horror movie style videos. If you like blood and gore style horror movies, you will love this.

The next video is a political/religious/philosophical song about circumcision of young boys in South Africa.

Die Antwoord - Evil Boy

This next video is one of Die Antwoord's earlier videos when they were going "next level, worldwide".
