Deadmau5 renamed his Ferrari “Purrari” while decking out in a Nyan cat wrap. The Italian exotic car maker was not amused..
Ferrari sent the DJ a cease and desist letter demanding his strike the decoration from his Ferrari 458 Spider STAT.
Deadmau5, whose real name is Joel Zimmerman, had put up for sale for $380,000 earlier this summer.
After his was officially put on notice, Zimmerman removed the sky blue car wrap inspired by the internet meme, Nyan cat, which has a pop-tart body and leaves a rainbow trail while it flies through space, he announced on Twitter this week. source
Ferrari took the most offense to his custom badges and floor mats with Purrari logos, he told Twitter followers.
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.
