Cool Horror Videos: Die Antwoord’s Tommy Can’t Sleep, featuring Jack Black

Last Updated on August 5, 2021

I know very little about the South African rap group Die Antwoord beyond members Ninja and Yolandi Visser’s acting roles in the Neill Blomkamp film CHAPPIE, but I have heard some of their music. It’s not really for me, although “I Fink U Freeky” does get stuck in my head from time to time.

Die Antwoord is currently on tour in promotion of their upcoming album The Book of Zef, which they have said will be their final album. In the midst of this, Visser has come out with something that appeals to me much more than their music (and even more than CHAPPIE did, actually) – a completely insane five minute horror short called TOMMY CAN’T SLEEP.

Filled with foul language and penis drawings, this NSFW short stars Sixteen Jones, the 12-year-old daughter of Ninja and Visser, along with Jack Black and Liz Carey.

The synopsis: 

TOMMY CANT SLEEP because there’s rats in his room and his stupid f*ckin dumb bitch mom doesn’t believe him.

That’s the set-up, anyway. That doesn’t prepare you for the madness that Visser put together here. A description doesn’t cut it, it just has to be seen. 

So here you go:
