Video of the Day: Harmony Korine’s Short Film Starring Die Antwoord


If you’ve ever wondered where exactly Die Antwoord sprang from, Harmony Korine’s new 15-minute short film “Umshimi Wam” (which translates as “Bring Me My Machine Gun”) gives you at least one version of the South African rap crew’s back story. Ninja and Yo-Landi — armed with uzis and rolling around the ‘burbs in wheelchairs — decide to take their “shit to the next level” and “get the respect they deserve on the streets” by robbing and killing a few people, beginning with a racist old dude peddling what he calls “the Rolls Royce of wheelchairs.” Click through to check it out, but be prepared: it’s even more ridiculous that it sounds.
