Yolandi stars as a lonely misfit in Die Antwoord’s video for “Alien”

South African hip hop duo Die Antwoord have gone and done it again, making us feel uneasy and creeped out with the visuals for track “Alien”. Directed by Ninja, the video is set in one of Detroit’s many derelict buildings and depicts Yolandi as an alien singing about loneliness and her wish for a companion and friend. After being turned away from a diner, she’s forced to eat a glowing bug, deciding that she doesn’t want to fit in anyway. “I’d rather be a misfit,” she sings. “They laugh at me because I’m different, I laugh at them because they’re all the same.”

In the end, she builds herself a cocoon and hatches out as the pair’s real-life daughter, Sixteen Jones. Check it out above.
