Well, isn’t this an unlikely duo?
Toronto’s Mayor Rob Ford took a ride in Deadmau5’s Purrari (a nyan cat-themed Ferrari) this week, and the two went on a coffee run at none other than Canada’s favourite coffee chain, Tim Hortons.
During the ride, the two talked about football (“I love football. It’s cool.”, says Ford), potholes, the parking garages in the city and internet jokes. Though as thrilling as it is to listen to their conversation, the most interesting fact learned here is how Mr. Ford takes his coffee. Admitting that he enjoys espressos with his Italian friends, he ordered five espressos in one cup while Deadmau5 settled with the typical go-to order of a double-double (which Ford thought was pretty funny).
Lasting about 30 minutes, watching this odd pairing go on a coffee run is like trying to talk to your friend’s dad as he drives you home. At least Mr. Ford paid for the drinks!
With that said though, Deadmau5 has a message for those who thinks he let himself go for associating with the mayor of Toronto.
“Dear Stupid, this is a coffee run,” he wrote in a caption below the video. “This does not reflect my political views, or views on anything really… *cep’t for maybe my views on Toronto traffic, stupid ass drivers, stupid fuckin potholes, and my caffeine intake or any other stupid shit that comes out of my mouth.
p.s. stop being stupid.”
