Get ready, lovers of 8-bit everything: The Hit Squad is coming

(Video link) Billed as the world's first 8-bit movie (and a quick Google search might just support that), The Hit Squad looks like the indie version of Wreck-It-Ralph, except instead of video game characters, it's about an '80s band trying to save their recording studio from evil types. Writer and director Chris Blundell, with his fellow filmmakers, raised $10,000 through crowdsourcing to make the movie, which is now available for pre-order on the official site. In case you need further convincing, Blundell promises "an 8-bit comedy movie about sex, skullduggery, and synthesised music. It's outrageous, heartwarming, and pixelly." Who doesn't love pixels? Outrageous pixels? Squares, man. That's who. (via The Hit Squad)

Die Antwoord: "Fok Julle Naaiers" (music video)

The song, and the video, which apparently led to Die Antwoord's divorce from Interscope to go independent. This will be the first single to be released off their soon-to-be-self-released album TEN$ION.

Warning: If you are afraid of spiders or scorpions, you should not watch this video.
