I can't even pretend to grasp the larger socio-politico underpinnings of Die Antwoord and this video. But I know compelling, batshit crazy art when I see it, and "Fatty Boom Boom" is a word of mad genius. From the introductory update of Diamond Dave's busride, to a brutal depiction of Lady Gaga, a bizarre visit to a dentist/gynecologist and some performance segments that are as captivating and out-there as some of Hype Williams' greatest work, this is guaranteed to stick in your craw like a prawn in an orifice. --> watch "Fatty Boom Boom"
