Deadmau5 Takes Darude out for Coffee in a McLaren Supercar
Deadmau5 is, and has been, one of the hottest names in Electronic Dance Music for some time. But guys like he, Calvin Harris, Alesso, and others can trace the popularity of EDM to Darude. So when these two bookends to an unprecedented time of growth for the genre get in a rare McLaren together, it might be worth watching. Deadmau5, aka Joel Zimmerman recently got together with the Finnish Darude, and the Canadian took Darude out in his McLaren. Some outlets argue that this is a McLaren P1 hybrid hypercar, however, if you look closely at the rear window, you'll notice that the design of the rear window and its side vents more closely resembles one of the other models, like the 650S, 675LT, or even the one that started McLaren's modern run of supercars; the MP4-12C. Deadmau5 is known for his love of supercars, and wrapping them in Nyan Cat meme graphics. The hybrid McLaren is a completely different beast, and the two go out for a rather long coffee run, which Deadmau5 was kind enough to record.

It is really cool to hear these two masters of the EDM genre shoot the breeze about the difference between landscapes in their home country, and the fact that Darude has never seen Game of Thrones.

For the most part, you only get the view inside the car, but pay close attention to the scenery going by the windshield, the sound of the McLaren powertrain, and the view out the rear window. It is a very unique way to experience a car that most of us will never get a whiff of—let alone drive!
