Yes they're a guilty pleasure, like scarfing down a box of donuts on a Saturday morning. Considering they're as much performance artists as anything, I find the whole mess fascinating. Often start off winter weekend mornings watching a few videos before getting up.
For the filming of Chapie apparently Ninja was a pita, and none of the "real" actors would get near him, especially after he fed someone an edible without telling them what it really was.
Saw them in concert and they do a really good show, will repeat when they come back to town.
