Die Antwoord Living the Golden Life in 'Rich B*tch' Video
South African rave rap group Die Antwoord has both amazed and puzzled before with song and video alike. And then came the new clip for "Rich B*tch."
The new video for the tune, off the group's 2010 record "$O$," finds the pint-sized Yo-Landi Vi$$er rapping about wholesome, for-the-whole-family topics such as setting her family on fire, how she used to count change before coming into her present situation (which should be quite obvious from the song's title and chorus) and following up lyrics like "Getting closer to God / Do you hear that? / I flow from the heart" with "F**k the upperclass."

All this lends itself to a visual makes Gwen Stefani's "Rich Girl" clip seem perfectly tame in comparison. Because where else can you find golden Catwoman suits, Antwoord's Ninja donning perhaps the strangest get-up this side of Gaga, and Vi$$er literally sitting on the toilet (a gold toilet, mind you!) with her golden undergarments pulled down? Magic of YouTube, baby. You're welcome.
