The meaning of Wat Kyk Jy?

If I had a dollar for every person that came to this blog every day off the back of the search “the meaning of Wat Kyk Jy” I could probably buy a juicy burger in my favourite burger bar every night.

Anyway, here is DIE ANTWOORD:

Wat kyk Jy is Afrikaans and literally translates to – What are you looking at

More specifically, it’s the menacing words you hear when you walk into a bar in Parys (Free State, not Texas) and you fix your gaze on one of the patrons for too long. In other words, it’s the last words your hear before you hit the floor.

Wat Kyk Jy is also the name of a website founded by Zef Meester Grif, way back in 2000 (if I’m not mistaken). He is the original Ninja.

There you have it. Happy now?

    Well, at about 6:52 in this video, this phrase can be seen tattooed on male member of Die Antwoord, and I mean “member”:

    I can’t say much about the font choice.
