Earlier this year we reported on Ferrari’s Cease And Decist to Canadian DJ and car-lover Deadmau5. Ferrari was none too happy with the musician’s custom Purrari livery, featuring the internet’s own Nyan-cat:

Rich and famous car dudes — they're just like us! Sometimes they have embarrassing traffic mishaps in their vehicles. It's just that when they do, the stakes are a bit higher. Just ask exotic Uber driver Deadmau5 and Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler.
If you're a frequent Uber user in Toronto, keep your eyes pealed for a McLaren 650S and a smiling mouse head. Deadmau5 is officially on the Uber X payroll and he started giving rides this week.
Apparently Ferrari was none to pleased with the custom badges and associated floor mats on Deadmau5’s 458 Italia Purrari. So much so that Ferrari North America sent the self-admitted button-pusher a cease and desist to have the custom emblems removed.
Everyone was all excited over Deadmau5's Purrari 458 being sold on Craigslist for big bucks. Apparently "everyone" doesn't include the trolls that infest the internet and click the spam button daily. Enter Autotrader to save the Nyan Cat day.
I'm not sure what's the best part of this story — that Deadmau5 is selling his Nyan Cat Ferrari 458 for $380,000 or that he's doing it on Craigslist.
No one can put wraps on their cars anymore. That trend is officially over now. Canadian dance music producer Deadmau5 just dropped the mic on car wrapping for good with his wonderful Ferrari 458 Italia Nyan Cat wrap. Nothing can top this supreme auto troll.
Okay, hypocrisy time. After I called out that Pink Dolphin Ferrari 458 Italia as the worst Ferrari paint job ever, you might think I also hate that EDM producer Deadmau5 wants to wrap his 458 in Nyan Cat livery. Except I don't because this is AMAZING.
