Marshmello Released a New Music Video, Deadmau5 is Pissed

In a battle of the most famed masked EDM producers, who would win? Deadmau5 or Marshmello?

Battle of the big heads.

Things are heating up between the two of them, and it isn’t too pretty. There’s no need to explain that deadmau5 has a hot temper and a penchant for posting negative things online, but is Marshmello intentionally pushing his buttons?

Marshmello just released a music video for his song “Ritual” ft. Wrabel and it’s totally awesome, but a tiny fraction of the video features someone sporting deadmau5’s iconic ears in a clear parody. “Ritual” shows the phony deadmau5 looking sad until Marshmello steps over and invites him to party with the happy folks.

Go figure, deadmau5 wasn’t happy.

He didn’t end by just tweeting his disappointment, however. He ended up having his management get the video taken down completely. Marshmello and the crew at OWSLA, who released the track, fired back by putting it right back up.

To skip to the part featuring “deadmau5,” go to 3:24. The whole video is pretty fun though, so you might as well watch the whole thing:


Watching the phony deadmau5 in the video, it seems like the real deadmau5 could be totally overreacting. Then again, Marshmello could be using deadmau5’s image to get publicity for his own stuff, and if that’s the case, it’s clearly working because everyone is talking about their beef all over again.

Some fans have even pointed out that there might be some jealousy going on here–could deadmau5 be mad that someone else with a mask is getting recognition? Who really knows what these guys are up to.
