Die Antwoord’s new music video for the single-worthy “Ugly Boy” has notched up over 800 000 views and it hasn’t even been up for a whole day.
Featuring a slew of famous faces – namely Marilyn Manson, Dita Von Teese, Flea (Red Hot Chili Peppers), Jack Black and Cara Delevingne – the video is tamer than the overtly graphic ‘Pitbull Terrier’ that came before it and let’s face it, the song’s also much catchier.
To celebrate the release of their new video, Ninja posted 6 of local social documentary photographer Luke Daniel’s photos on his Instagram, one of an ex-prisoner with “Ugly $ Boy” tattooed across his shoulders. Daniel is working on a project entitled “Tjappies Van Die Point” which deals with the symbolism of South African prison gang tattoos, a subject which Ninja is evidently fascinated with when you take into account all the tjappies on his body.
Watch the video below and check out Ninja’s Instagram for the pics.
