Ferrari Vs. Deadmau5 (Recap)

On Friday Ferrari Vs. Deadmau5 was a top story. Here is the recap: (Radio.com) Apparently, famed Italian automaker Ferrari took none to kindly to Deadmau5's notorious "Purrari," his customized Ferrari wrapped with rainbows and images of Nyan Cat. According the the heavily caffeinated "Strobe" producer's Twitter account, Ferrari went so far as to send him a cease-and-desist letter regarding the vehicle, which he drove in this year's Gumball 3000 car rally across Europe.

The Purrari was also famous for being the car Deadmau5 (AKA Joel Zimmerman) used to ferry such celebs as Skrillex and Toronto mayor Rob Ford around town for coffee.

Apparently, Ferrari had issues with their famous brand being so gratuitously remixed by the DJ ("It's the online definition of annoying," he explained to Ford about the Nyan Cat theme).

Deadmau5 Tweeted, "I wonder if the jackass lawyer at @FerrariUSA who sent us a "cease and desist" letter over the purrari is un-butthurt now that I unwrapped."

According to Deadmau5, it was a couple of specific details that ruffled the feathers of Ferrari brass. Find out what - here.
