The song's music video ridicules a male Lady Gaga impersonator, who is clad in the star's signature meat dress. The faux Gaga is then attacked by a lion and killed off. Die Antwoord apparently took issue with the Pop superstar after she asked them to open for her on tour. Following the video's release, Gaga posted on Twitter, "i fink u freaky but you don't have a hit. hundred thousand tickets sold in SA. #thatsmys--t." ("I Fink U Freeky" is a track on Die Antwoord's Ten$ion album, which they performed on both Late Show With David Letterman and Jimmy Kimmel Live).
The video also generated controversy for its apparent usage of blackface.
In the light of Gaga's accusation that Die Antwoord hasn't had a hit, it's interesting to note that the video racked up 1.5 million views in its first two days of release.
