Today at 4PM, Die Antwoord presents a “special, one-night only installation” inside of Upper Playground’s San Francisco gallery, FIFTY24SF. While I can’t really picture how the madness will unfold on Fillmore, thanks to Juxtapoz, I CAN clearly visualize the vinyl Die Antwoord Evil Boy toy they’ll be releasing. Remember back in April when we first Wikipedia’d Tokoloshe? Although the toy version of the South African demon is not the “hairy, pot-bellied dwarf” previously reported, I can say with certainty that it does “have a penis the size of a horse’s”.
The Die Antwoord Evil Boy toy was made in collaboration with Good Smile Company, the folks responsible for David Choe’s Munkos toys. Upper Playground says that “select vinyl pieces will be hand-detailed by Die Antwoord’s Ninja.” I have to try to get one. Die Antwoord’s appearance coincides with the San Francisco stop of the South African artists’ TEN$ION tour. See you there?

Kind of calls to mind Takashi Murakami’s My Lonesome Cowboy, yeah? No?
