They announced in 2017 that all their music videos were in fact part of a TV series [[http://www.papermag.com/die-antwoord-south-african-ninja-2471080378.html they've been developing]], called ''South African Ninja''. Its release date is unknown.


Added DiffLines:

* SopranoAndGravel: Ninja's voice isn't especially low, but Yolandi's is high enough that just about everyone's voice is low in contrast.

** "Rich Bitch"'s video could be a parody/homage to {{Sublime}}'s "Wrong Way": both have girls trapped in poverty with their horrible father and brothers and take the wrong way out -- "Wrong Way"'s heroine is forced to become a prostitute who hooks up with the wrong guy while Yo-landi [[spoiler: sets her house and family on fire]].

* EntropyAndChaosMagic: They are real life practioners of Chaos Magic and that is prominent in many songs like Pitbull Terrier. Chaos Magic websites and paranoid Christian ones alike have pages breaking down the symbolism in their videos.

* MySisterIsOffLimits: The video for "Baby's on Fire" exposes the DoubleStandard this trope creates: Ninja sleeps with every floozy in town, but flips out the moment Yo-Landi tries to have a sex life of her own.

* BrickJoke: A rare ''literal'' version! In the 2011 short film ''Umshini Wam'', Yo-Landi chants "I'm old enough to bleed/I'm old enough to breed/Old enough to crack a brick in your teeth while you sleep." A year later, the "Baby's on Fire" music video ends with Yo-Landi hurling a brick at Ninja's face as he holds her latest boy-toy at gunpoint.

** "Fatty Boom Boom" has a reference to ''Film/District9''. They're apparently fairly close friends with Neil Blomkamp; see also [[AsHimself As Themselves]].
*** The prosthetic arm Ninja wears in parts of "Evil Boy" is also clearly from ''Film/District9.''
