Die Antwoord, a weirdo rap group out of South Africa, might seem fairly niche, but over their five-year career, they’ve made friends with some heavyweight acts — which has come in handy for their new video.

In the visual clip for “Ugly Boy,” from their recently released album Donker Mag, they brought in a few of their friends: Marilyn MansonJack BlackFlea, Dita von Teese, UK It Girl and model Cara Delevingne, and the ATL Twins, who appeared in Spring Breakers as James Franco’s cronies

Like everything else Die Antwoord does, it’s full-on absurdity that straddles the line between earnest and humorous. Manson hands a burning rose to singer Yolandi. Black plays a Jersey mob type in an athletic suit, gold chain and cigar. von Teese wears black cone pasties. And someone in blackface, who the Internet thinks is Richard D. James of Aphex Twin, wears all-white and a giant name tag that says, “Hello my name is God.”

To add fire to those Internet rumors, Yolandi wears a sweatshirt with an Aphex Twin logo at one point.
