The Best Videos of 2010
By MySpace Music • 5 days ago Year In Music
I found an interesting review on this Myspace page:
“Sure, the world’s introduction to Die Antwoord—via these two bizarre, but hugely engaging clips—looked like it cost a few hundred bucks. And, yeah, we should probably admit that “Zef Side” isn’t even a proper music video. (The song featured in the clip is actually “Beat Boy,” from the South African rave-rap outfit’s major-label debut, $O$.) But even with that being said—and with apologies to the numerous big-budget productions hailed above—nobody else utilized the music video as effectively in 2010 as Die Antwoord.
With “Enter The Ninja,” a bizzaro freak out that recalled the “Parents Just Don’t Understand” video, but on crystal meth, and “Zef Side,” a three-minute slice of alternate reality exploring the band’s origins, we get a remarkably comprehensive picture of the Die Antwoord aesthetic: Their sense of humor, where they come from and how that background has shaped their entire being. That’s a rather old-school notion of what a music video should do; these days plenty of acts seem to view the form (if they indeed view it all) as a way to impress, rather than engage. But needless to say, when these two clips trickled onto the Internet this past winter, we were left with far more questions than answers.
What, for instance, were we to take from the sight of Ninja’s nuts rattling around inside his Dark Side Of The Moon boxers? What should we make of the seemingly extraterrestrial-like creature stuntin’ in the “Enter The Ninja” clip? This year, only one band were this good at presenting themselves as a riddle, creating videos that, as a whole, were funny, weird and strangely cozy. These two clips, more than any other, invited us into Die Antwoord’s world and made us want to linger for awhile. Consider it an old-school artistry for a new-school paradigm.—Mikael Wood
