According to the ever reputable news sources twitter and instagram, it looks like deadmau5, aka Joel Zimmerman, has been banned from driving in France during the Gumball 3000 earlier today.
The news first broke with this tweet, which links to the instagram photo shown above:
It was followed up with the following tweets/instagram posts:
The Gumball 3000 is a "super car" road race that began in Miami on June 5th, 2014 and is scheduled to end in Ibiza on June 11th. Cars are loaded onto planes at the end of the U.S. course and then flown to Europe. Each night of the race, a piece of pop culture memorabilia is auctioned off, with the proceeds donated to charity. Last night, deadmau5 tweeted that he had outbid David Hasselhoff for the latter's original Baywatch jacket.
No hard feelings between Zimmerman and Hasselhoff though, as the two were photographed in a fierce bromantic embrace immediately after the auction. These photos was taken by Tory Belleci of Mythbusters fame. Belleci is deadmau5 driving partner for the race.
deadmau5 is driving his signature Ferrari, referred to as the Purrari. The sports car has been wrapped with a Nyan Cat graphic. Nyan Cat is a popular YouTube video and Internet Meme.
deadmau5 new album while (1<2) is due out on June 17th. It can be pre-ordered on iTunes here.
