I can`t believe people find this so baffling. Simply put: 2 South African homeless cripples escape their horrible day-to-day reality (digging through trash, living in a park, getting high) by indulging in Rapper and VideoGame "Gansta` fantasies." When existence gets to be too much, they decide to go on a criminal spree: They kill a racist for new "Rolls," rob a custom car shop for holographic rims (becoming double murderers) then, spending their last night outdoors together, comfort each other with the hope that God will forgive them (for their desperation); and, finally, off-screen --(BLAM! BLAM!) a sad murder suicide ends it all. The costumes? That was their way of highlighting the absurdity of their impoverished possibilities...something that helped them maintain their sense of humor against their ghastly, pathetic lives. But, says Harmony, such self defenses can only keep someone from playing "death games" for real...for just. so. long. So lon

LOL this is awesome... really strange but awesome. There is something strangely attractive about Yolandi Visser as well. Their music videos also grow on you.

@ edana: It means that you have other more pressing matters, and don`t have 15 minutes to watch what is obviously a seriously strange WTF??!!?? video.

I made it about five minutes in, and it just wasn`t doing anything for me, so I stopped it.

That is Ninja and Yolandi from Die Antwoord. A rap project by Watkin Tudor Jones. Basically a gag rap group that is pretty popular compared to Watkin`s earlier underground sounds.

I think I met him back in 2007 at Toronto Film Festival? I was using a lot of drugs then. Perhaps I did not meet him, but I remember watching Gummo. I saw that flic way back in the day.
