Cape Town – South African zef-rap group Die Antwoord released their new music video, Fatty Boom Boom, on Tuesday.

The video begins with a tour operator, played by comedian David Kibuuka, saying "Welcome to Africa lady", which then shows a Lady Gaga lookalike in her infamous meat dress embarking on an African tour in a minibus taxi.

From hyenas eating garbage to a black panther and a lion 'chilling' on the street, 'Lady Gaga' gets the whole tour, and even gets hijacked after passing by Die Antwoord as they set up to perform on the pavement.

Die Antwoord also take a stab at the fact that they turned Lady Gaga down when she asked them to open for her earlier this year.

As in their video for I Fink U Freeky, in which they reference Jane Alexander's The Butcher Boys, this video includes another reference to South African art with a scene based on comics artist Anton Kannemeyer's Black Gynaecologist, played by comedian Kagiso Lediga.

In true Die Antwoord style, Yo-Landi takes fashion to a new level with a blackface and a dress made of Chappies wrappers, while Ninja sports body paint and black contact lenses.

The video has had more than 168 000 views on YouTube since it was posted on Tuesday.
