Die Antwoord’s ‘Pitbull Terrier’ Video Follows Around a Pitbull Terror

Frontman Ninja dresses as a man-dog and faces off with fellow Die Antwoord member Yolandi, who plays a cat-woman

The absurdity of South African zef ambassadors Die Antwoord reaches new levels in the video for “Pitbull Terrier.” Directed by frontman Ninja, the clip finds the MC done up in some grotesque pit-bull makeup and follows the man-dog as he escapes from his owner and runs around town mauling (and humping the legs of) unsuspecting victims to the tune of the duo’s vicious dance rap track. After scaling a giant wall, Ninja corners and attacks two women dressed as cats before Yolandi Visser drops in to fend him off. The two engage in a chase that ends with a grisly fate and one member hocking a loogie into the mouth of the other.

“Pitbull Terrier” will appear on the follow-up to their 2012 breakout Ten$ion, Donker Mag, which will come out June 3rd. The LP, perhaps unsurprisingly, boasts a track list that manages to give Lana Del Rey’s Ultraviolence a run for its money, featuring such numbers as: “Happy Go Sucky Fucky,” “Girl I Want 2 Eat U,” “Rat Trap 666,” “Cookie Thumper!,” “Raging Zef Boner,” and — because brevity remains the soul of wit — “Sex.”

Die Antwoord are set to tour North America and Europe this summer, the dates for which are listed on their website. Those planning on attending Die Antwoord shows should probably leave their dogs and cats at home.
