ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
[Video Link] What is this I don't even. The artist is HGich.T, the song "Tutenchamun." Original video sans subtitles and explanations are here. It's several years old, but new to me. (HT: @treyka)
There is no emoticon translation for the expression on my face after watching that…
Best rush it to the Invisible Art at the Hayward then. No dawdling.
Tall rapper with flat-top
Skinny blonde with clothes falling off
Retro rave beats
Kitschy mish-mash aesthetic
So…Die Antwoord is selling franchises?
I thought immediately of Die Antwoord, though they’re not alike at all in most respects.
They’re like Die Antwoord on crack. How the hell that’s even possible, I have no idea.
At 0:33 he makes a gesture that seems to refer to cocaine use
WOW, watch a few of their other videos. I wish I could un-see Taxi 110…
I’ll take you seriously from now on… <1 minute killed my evening!
I love this so much. Truly.
I really loved this. It’s almost as good as that Russian video by Mummy-Troll where the pickle people are engaging in public debauchery with dissolute furries.
I want to make space babies with that girl and stuff.
She’s quite cute, which tells me that the reason I don’t have a girlfriend isn’t that I’m too weird, but rather, am not even close to being weird ENOUGH.
Man the Germans and Japanese take the prize for weird shit on the internet. They should get together some time and … oh wait. NVM, bad idea.
You mean like this YouTube from an alternate universe where the Axis won WWII?
Well, with our historical background it’s hard to be embarrassant about anything.
The notes on this all-german interview descreibe them as “the band/performance group/dada family HGich.T”
Ah. Und so weiter.
The auto-captions don’t really help, but they don’t hurt.
Oodles of win.
Unbelievable… this song is fairly famous within germans youth, espacially the drugs & goa/gabber community. Even though everyone you ask will tell you it’s horrible. Just so you know, the grammar is very, very bad!
If you liked that, you might also like this one, different artis but same sort of humor (i think) – sadly no subtitles:
p.s. I really hate your new comment system… the site is so bloated now..
I love this so much. Have for years. It’s the best.
I was in Munich last month and caught this video while randomly flipping through the hotel TV, and I’ve been trying to find it ever since! It’s nearly impossible to try to explain this to someone without showing them.
This song is the best song in the universe ya? It has it all ya? drama, pathos, light sabres, elvin ears, goa, dodgy guys with eyeliner. My life is now complete ya?
