FriendsWithYou Loves Die Antwoord Via Kooky Tour Graphics

When interwebs sensation Die Antwoord first exploded, we noticed an odd thing on their MySpace page: FriendsWithYou was one of their top friends. Well, in the days of Facebook, Twitter, tumbr, etc. these connections mean very little, but it piqued our interest. A few tweets later by FriendsWithYou further fueled our speculation that the two were somehow in cahoots; however, we asked them to elaborate to no avail. Well finally we know what they were up to: FriendsWithYou is producing the tour graphics from the South African rave-rap group. The animation debuted at Coachella Music Festival this past April, but we have it on good word that they will be used when Die Antwoord hits the road to promote their debut album $O$, which will see the light of day via Interscope Records after a fierce bidding war erupted after their initial YouTube success.

Watch FriendsWithYou's work in action after the jump.
