Allan Grey - Time Flies / Child grows - (2011) :90 (South Africa)

Way to get me all weepy eyed, Allan Grey. This story will go straight to the heart of most parents. As a child, all you want is to grow, be older and wiser, as a parent, all you want is to cherish every moment. Truth well told.

You don't need to understand Afrikaans to understand the story. The mother at the start tells her daughter to that it's just five more sleepies until the big day. The daughter, impatient with counting wishes herself to next week and her birthday. She continues using her gift to fast-forward her life to ride big kid rides at the amusement park, to marry the boy of her dreams, to land that dream job. To skip the whole pregnancy and see the moment of her own daughters birth....

Die Antwoord - Evil Boy (Explicit Version) - (2010)

Four minutes and thirty nine seconds of WTF!?, featuring Wanga, a teenage Xhosa emcee, and Diplo himself. Die Antwoord (The Answer) are here to mess with your synapses combining thumping beats with a heavy dose of surreal and downright scary dancing creatures. From Yolanda, bleached the whitest of white's with her collection of white rats while wearing a rat-jacket, to the freaky alien like creatures with District 9 prawn arms. The graffiti which is part Keith Haring, part new african art as it happen when one marries naive to city-culture. This is all kinds of perfect.

The video is a protest against Xhosa ritual male circumcision, which explains the many phallic images and perhaps the penis microphone too.
