"Have you seen 'Buffalo 66'? It's not going to be exactly like that, but the pace is," Ninja explained. "One scene takes place at the end of a rave. There's this acid dealer, the Elf, who thinks he's from 'Lord of the Rings.' He tries to warn Yo-Landi how powerful this acid is, and Yo-Landi tries to show off by taking a lot."
Reached a day after the "Zef Side" Guggenheim event, Metelerkamp recalled the group members' meager expectations for the no-budget interview/performance clip aimed at explaining Zef — tacky, Afrikaner brand ostentation that can be seen as a kind of triumphal, new millennial ghettofabulousness — to the world. He went on to present his take on Die Antwoord's process of self-mythologizing to clear up the "is this a joke or not?" debate.
"I don't think it's a joke," Meterlerkamp said. "It is fair to call it an art project. Waddy, he's a nice guy. Very different than the character, very sure of what he wants. When I met him, he had Ninja in his head. But he needed someone to bring Ninja to life visually."
The director continued: "Ninja and Yo-Landi are very serious about what they are doing. It's real in their own minds."
