Deadmau5 has taken a light hearted approach to the Grammy Awards today, trolling his pal, and dubstep extraordinaire Skrillex while on the red carpet. Skrillex was announced as winner of the three pre-ceremony awards including; Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites album winning Best Dance/Electronica Album, the title track also earning Best Dance Recording, while his remix of Benny Benassi’s Cinema winning Best Remixed Recording, Non-Classical.
Prior to the prank, Deadmau5 tweeted on his phone,
Congrats to @skrillex for the best remix grammy 🙂 can’t say I’m not proud
But @skrillex, doesn’t mean you’re safe from getting the ultimate mau5 trolling experience 🙂 prepare! 😉 hahaha love u!
These tweets caused some talk on online forums and blogs about what Deadmau5 was planning, however all speculation was stopped when he stepped onto the red carpet, sporting a T-Shirt with Skrillex’s mobile number on it, with the phrase “u mad bro?” underneath. In response to the prank, Skrillex tweeted
Haha @deadmau5 just wore my phone number on his fokin shirt on tv gotta retire this phone
Skrillex then attempted to set up a call forwarding to Deadmau5’s phone, however it became apparent that he had already thought one step ahead, clearly thinking through every aspect of the prank.
