I fokken love Wikus van der Merwe. If Sharlto Copley wasn’t so attached to his real name, changing it to alter ego would be so full of win. Swietie-man is also a viable option, albeit a little creepy.
In this clip from Funny or Die, Wikus tries to get another saffer, Charlize Theron, to present along him at the South African Music Awards 16. A camera crew follows him on his quest and this is the footage they captured. It’s awkward and so very funny.
Your next encounter with Sharlto should be a goodie too. He’s playing the role of loony chopper pilot Capt. H.M. “Howling Mad” Murdock in the upcoming movie A-Team. That should release on August 20th in South Africa.
