It seems like there is no end to the high-profile, big-name fans Die Antwoord are collecting. While talking to Danny DeVito for The Lorax earlier today, the actor, at the end of our interview, asked me about “that guy and the girl band from South Africa”. In return, I asked if he caught their appearance on David Letterman last night (see Exhibit A below).
His response follows after the video.
You can just hear the disappointment in his voice:[audio:http://missntertainment.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/02/danny-die-antwoord.mp3|titles=danny die antwoord]
The tape stopped rolling but I asked him if he understood the lyrics, since many of them are in Afrikaans and he said “yeah”.
“That guy is so good – he’s really clever,” Danny said, before adding, “and the girl, she just keeps repeating the same thing over and over. I love it!”
I almost missed my next interview – with Zac Efron – because Mr DeVito kept talking about the group. Let’s hope he manages to catch them on their American tour, which kicks off on Thursday. We wouldn’t want him to be disappointed again!
