According to Spin, a number of musicians and artists have praised the video in a press statement. “You are mental! Hahahahaa amazing art man! Epic shit ! Fuck em all” artist Damien Hirst said in the statement, with Aphex Twin adding, “Ok now the next one you make has to be ULTRA sweet and full of love, serious hugz”. You can see the video below.

Rumours of a split began circulating earlier this year after rapper Ninja implied the trio would split in September 2017. Ninja was quoted in Exclaim magazine as saying: “It’s all over. I feel beautiful about it. I’m not scared of the end. I’m a ninja, I’m not scared of death.”
They later denied the reports, with fellow rapper Yolandi Visser saying that Exclaim had taken Ninja’s words out of context and that the band had no plans to split, although she implied Die Antwoord’s next album would be their last before they began work on a film.
Visser wrote on Instagram: “The journalist who wrote an article stating that we’re breaking up totally twisted our words and took what we said completely out of context. This is a lie.”
In a post headlined “Die Antwoord is not breaking up”, Visser continued: “All we said was, next year we’ll be working on our fifth final DA album and then continue to shoot a DA feature film. DA for eva.”
Die Antwoord’s album ‘Mount Ninji And Da Nice Time Kid’, was released on September 16. It’s a mixtape featuring contributions from DJ Muggs of Cypress Hill and The Black Goat.
