The video and the song have nothing to do with each other. Hunter Kennedy said that the song reminded him of something that could be used on a Super Sport advert.
We just wanted to make a music video about rugby and music. Something local & authentic. We always had this concept of organising an event where members of different bands get divided into two rugby teams, play a match and afterwards we have a braai and a gig where all the bands perform.
The best we could do is spend money, make jerseys and invite all our friends to partake in two nights of filming.
We had a lot of sandwiches and a lot of booze to keep everyone going.
But most important of all – Fokofpolisiekar won and this was the beginning of many battles to be won. Jesus Duiwe RIP.
Once again – thanks to all our friends that were part of this. It was two nights of hell (and fun). Good memories.
from their album As Jy Met Vuur Speel Sal Jy Brand
A South African documentary film about 5 young Afrikaans punk rockers that transformed a generation during a unique time in history – in one of the most reluctantly complex and evolving societies of the 21st century. The film follows the story of the band over 4 years as they forge a place for themselves and their fans in the new South Africa, in the process challenging the stigmas and expectations placed on them by their Afrikaner heritage, the church and tradition. Through the death threats and Christian backlash, they stood tall – sentries for the right to identity and freedom of thought. A story that transcends language and culture; and bravely faces a truth, that most would’ve left in darkness.
