Deadmau5 Wraps Lamborghini Huracan in Nyan Cat, Trolls Ferrari on Instagram

It’s the other day we were telling you about the millionaire electronic music DJ and his passion for cats and expensive cars. We were also reporting about how Deamdau5 never forgot Ferrari’s letter of desisting they sent last year, in which the Italian automaker demanded him to take off the Nyan Cat wrap his Ferrari 458 had. It’s safe to say that he just paid them back big time.
Deadmau5's dispute with Ferrari started when they told him to lose the Nyan Cat on his Ferrari 458. Now he has a Lamborghini Huracan instead 1 photo
Meet Joel Zimmerman, a successful artist who enjoys spending most of his money on toys. If it’s not a new sound system or an ATV, then you’ll find him spending significant cash on supercars. Good, now you know why we’re talking about Deadmau5.

This time, however, it’s a particular conflict the DJ has that got our attention. You see that blue Lamborghini Huracan with an animated cartoon cat with the body of a Pop-Tart, flying through space? It’s called the Nyan Cat, and it became an extremely popular Internet meme a while ago. However, to Zimmerman, this character is more than just an internet picture people play with; it’s a reminder of how Ferrari bossed around with his 458.

In case you missed our“Deadmau5 trolls Ferrari” series, we’ll mention there’s a record of such things that goes back almost a year. First they sent that letter, then Nissan trolled Ferrari sending a photoshopped picture with Nyan Cat GT-R to Zimmerman. Meanwhile, the Canadian DJ announced his plans to sell the Ferrari and get a Lamborghini Huracan instead so that he could keep those wraps flowing.

And now, this. Not only did Deadmau5 fulfill his dream of getting the
Nyan Cat wrap back on one of his supercars, but he even twitted this picture shouting out at Ferrari’s US dealership. The natural question that pops into our minds is: will Lamborghini be fine with this dispute? Moreover, will they agree with the Nyan Cat?
 

U mad @FERRARIUSA? #nyanborghini
