Deadmau5 poked some fun at rapper Flo Rida yesterday in a string of tweets after watching a two-minute commercial the rapper did for Beamz, a product enabling you to create your own music using laser light technology.

The product's official website contains the commercial which describes the product as "the hottest music technology to hit the market." The ad opens with Flo Rida asking "have you ever dreamed of being a star?" before more information is shown with a DJ moving his hands through different laser lights.

"Who wants to try my Beamz?" Flo Rida asks as different people try the technology which works with different platforms.

"So whether your fantasy is to be a rock hero, a DJ thrilling the crowd or you just want to fulfill your dreams of playing the music you love, you have to try my Beamz for yourself," Flo Rida says as the "try before you buy offer" which includes the product, an accompanying app "and over 20 chart-topping cover songs."

The list includes AC/DC, Pink, Rick James, Adele, Taylor Swift, Coldplay and of course Flo Rida. The 30-day risk-free guarantee ($19.95 cost for shipping and handling) spiel concludes the commercial. "With my Beamz, you just don't listen to music, you make it," Flo Rida says before he's shown leaving with fans on either side of him.

Needless to say, Deadmau5 had a lot of fun with this commercial, even attempting to contact Flo Rida through Twitter but realizing it was the wrong account.


deadmau5
well… fuck. so much for my career… the futures here. shit… save me an opening slot at least.


deadmau5
… "why spend thousands on music equipment when you could…." wait… THOUSANDS? I ONLY HAD TO SPEND THOUSANDS??? FUUUCK!!!! (╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻


deadmau5
… its one of those SNL commercials right?


deadmau5
i liked the part when they played dub step for like 2 seconds and had a dude with the side head shave thing going on eh! haha :D ucandoit!


deadmau5
seriously though… at least at one point during that commercial shoot, Flo must been like "man… someone might see this… mmmnahhhhhhh fuckit."

Deadmau5 also later posted an Instagram Video of his own version of Beamz called Bandz. The photo showed somebody (most likely Deadmau5) flicking elastic bands wrapped around drawer handles before saying, "Yo, who wants to play with my Bandz?"

The musician eventually tweeted Beamz official Twitter account and the company replied:


The Beamz
Hey we're huge fans of what you do and we would love to send you one to try out before you hate


The Beamz
you should be happy because we are teaching DJs how to mix without pushing buttons!!

Deadmau5 countered by asking for $7 million before adding he would provide sexual favors for the staff. The company has yet to reply with a counter offer.
