South African avant-rap duo Die Antwoord have released a video for their new track "Ugly Boy" that features cameo appearances from a fairly plucked-out-of-thin-air cast of celebrities. Cara Delevingne, Marilyn Manson, Flea, Jack Black, Dita Von Teese and the ATL Twins all show up cavorting to "Ugly Boy".
The track features a lengthy sample of the Aphex Twin song "Ageispolis" from Selected Ambient Works 85-92 and the ugly boy in question is said to be a Cape Town gangster that Yo-Landi started seeing after she split from Ninja, making for a potentially awkward dynamic in the studio.
Ninja says in the insert of their third album Donker Mag: "Dis song was a bit of a mindfuck 2 make… me and Y had been broken up 4 a while… but dis was da 1st time dat Y got in2 a kinda serios relationship wif sum1else, who happnd 2 be an activ gangster from da cape flats… who runs wif a gang called da UGLY AMERICANS.. or UGLY BOYS."
Regardless of any romantic complications, the two of them seem happy enough in the video and as an aside, we'd like a few of Yo-Landi's Aphex hoodies for ourselves.
