According to Variety (via HuffPo) Canadian DJ person and Kat Von D’s former partner in fuckery Deadmau5 (government name: Joel Zimmerman) is in deep enchanted shit with Disney after he tried to apply for a U.S. trademark for his signature “dead mouse” logo. According to Deadmau5’s attorney Dina LaPolt, his mouse-eared logo has been trademarked in 30 countries, but when he tried to get it trademarked in the U.S., Disney filed an objection with the Patent and Trademark Office to block his application.
Disney claims Deadmau5’s logo looks too much like their iconic mouse ears and I guess they’re afraid that dumb bitches will get confused when they see it and wonder why Mickey Mouse is playing shitty dance music for MDMA-snorting party skanks in Ibiza now. They also claim that Deadmau5 using a logo similar to theirs could impact business. Because if they teach you anything in business school, it’s that one of the the largest, most powerful corporations in the world could easily go bankrupt if a professional iTunes jockey wore a helmet that looks like their mascot.
Getting sued by Disney is no joke, especially since Disney is more powerful than God, Satan, Santa, and The Illuminati, but Deadmau5 doesn’t give a shit. He’s totally chill about possibly getting sued by company that could make his ass disappear faster than Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, and proved he’s not scared by tweeted several “Come at me, bro!” messages t0 Disney on Twitter:
I think we should be more worried that there isn’t enough ventilation in that mouse helmet, because only a brain that’s been denied oxygen thinks that Frozen tanked. Frozen was fucking HUGE! It made a billion dollars! Frozen was released 10 months ago and hos are STILL sing-screaming at me to let it go, let it goooooooo and we’re STILL making “Adele Dazeem” jokes and the grocery store near my house STILL has to keep the Elsa wigs locked up with the liquor because bitches keep trying to steal them! Unless he’s trying to be sarcastic, but I don’t think so. The dude spells his name with a 5; I don’t know if the concept of sarcasm is within his mental capacity.
But does he have a case? It doesn’t matter! He’s getting sued by Disney! This situation calls for 1,000 Oda Mae Brown “You in danger girl” gifs! Disney is not here for people trying to jack their shit, and threatening legal action is just the beginning. If he doesn’t destroy that trademark application, he’s going to wake up with Goofy’s severed head in his bed and a message spelled out in Donald’s feathers that says “ZIPPITY-DO NOT MAKE US TELL YOU TWICE.”
