They`re usually freakier. Their videos are very cleverly done freakery.

If you want to see them being really freaky, I suggest watching "I Fink You Freeky (and I like you a lot)". Maybe they got an email saying that and decided to make a song from it. The whole video is so freaky that Yolandi sitting in a bath singing to a duck is possibly the most normal part of it.

That`s the closest cultural comparison with the USA. Maybe a bit of a cross between rednecks, trailer trash and the vulgar ostentation of rap ("bling"). That`s exactly the style they`re going for (it`s called `zef` in South Africa) and they are indeed trying to offend people.

As Ninja put it, in three different languages:

If you`re feeling me, cool. Not feeling me? drat off! Wies jy? Fokkol! (Afrikaans - Who are you? drat all, nobody!) Umnqunduwakho! (Xhosa, a particularly foul insult that`s commonly translated as `non-nice individual` but which is much fouler in Xhosa, essentially saying that the person is not even good enough to be poo, they`re just an emptiness that poo comes out of).

They`re both characters, stage personas.

Eminem and Gwen Stefani had a little girl?

The family looked like my cousins in Norway.

Make your skin crawl? Ya a little, and laugh. I think South American White Trash is exactly what they are after. I honestly don`t know why, all their music is weird and not at all a style I normally like, but I like them anyways. They all talk weird but her voice is hypnotizing.

I am not fond of the genre but I recognize an energy and creative genius sorely lacking in the music of today.
