Deadmau5 Takes Toronto Mayor Rob Ford for Coffee in His ‘Purrari’

"This thing is cool, it's unbelievable," said Ford about the Purrari.

Oh, Canada.

Two of Toronto’s most famous residents — EDM star Deadmau5 (AKA Joel Zimmerman) and the city’s controversial mayor, Rob Ford — have come together for one of Deadmau5’s famous coffee runs, and they did in the “Ghosts ‘n’ Stuff” producer’s notorious wrapped Ferarri, better known as the “Purrari.”

“This thing is cool, it’s unbelievable,” said Ford about the Purrari.

Over the course of the drive, Deadmau5 explains to Ford the story behind how the “Purrari” initially came to be, and how he used the Nyan Cat imagery basically on a dare from fans who claimed that he wouldn’t have the audacity to do it.

When Deadmau5 points out a pothole he calls the “widow maker,” Ford takes it to heart and says he’ll have it fixed.

“It’s the broken window theory,” Ford said. “If you can’t fix the little things in the city, how are you going to take care of the little things?”

They dynamic duo hit up a local Tim Hortons restaurant, which is akin to Canada’s version of Dunkin’ Donuts, where Ford orders five shots of espresso in one cup (“That’s cardiac arrest,” Deadmaus quipped).

Ford gets on Deadmau5’s good side by proclaiming that he’s not a DJ, which of course makes the producer very happy.
