Deadmau5's Cat-Wrapped 458 Italia Pissed off Ferrari
When you buy a car you are entitled to do whatever you want with it. Deadmau5 decided wrapping it in ugly blue with a cherry Pop Tart cat on its doors would be awesome for the Gumball 3000. Ferrari lawyers didn't think so, and it pissed them off so much they sent a cease and desist letter to the Canadian progressive-house music producer and performer. First things first, maybe Ferrari needs to chill out a bit regarding their "image," as one 458 Italia owner does not speak for them all.
On the other hand, why would you take a beautiful piece of art and turn it into a joke on wheels? And if you are going to change the exterior, why an 8-bit animation depicting a cat with the body of an industrial cherry pastry? Deadmau5 claimed the point is not to take things too seriously. I agree, it's hard to look at this car and not laugh. Or cry. It's a moot point anyway, because he's already bringing it back to stock as he prepares for life with a McLaren P1. Thank the Lord.
