The set of Die Antwoord's new music video, 'Pitbull Terrier
', is really the abandoned JMT building in Newtown. It's a fixture of the Fordsburg/Newtown warehouse district and really big with the homeless community. Mostly though it's just a big lot full of junk and mythic uber-rats that run around in the dirt like Joburg's own Loch Ness Monster.
The Roger Ballen-inspired art is all over the place which means it must have been a mission for Ninja and his crew to paint the entire building, but it's an impressive display of the crew's dedication putting as many drawings of cocks and variations of the word "poes" on our city as possible.
