The film stars their daughter, 16 Jones, as "Lil Tommy" and has a cameo appearance by Jack Black as "Big Tommy". It's a B&W short art directed by Roger Ballen, a photographer who has had a major influence on Die Antwoord. The story is about a kid who can't sleep because there are rats in his room. As described by Nylon, "it's all extremely Die Antwoord: twisted, terrifying, absurd, funny, outlandish." It will likely ruin your day - enjoy.
