Hardwell is releasing his own fragrance and Deadmau5 isn’t having a bar of it

The dance music year doesn’t officially begin until Deadmau5 decides to troll another DJ, and ladies and gentlemen: that time has come.

Over the weekend, the Canadian producer took a break from remixing his own tunes to throw some shade at Dutch DJ Hardwell, who was trying to push his new fragrance ‘ECLIPSE’ over Twitter (yes, Hardwell has his own fragrance now):

But instead of just lobbing some insults over social media, Deadmau5 decided to go one further — by bottling some of his toilet water and attempting to sell it under the name “Au De Toilet”.

To prove how serious he was, he even filmed himself “bottling” the perfume:

That’s right, for a paltry $50 (which included free shipping) you could splash yourself with some of Deadmau5’s finest toilet water — he even promised to throw in a signed picture to thank the lucky buyer.

He then auctioned off Au De Toilet in a Twitch live stream, with the toilet water going to whoever first donated $50 to the charity Extra Life. “This is the real deal,” he said, holding up the small bottle. “This is water direct from my toilet…from the place where I piss and shit.”

It took less than a minute for the bottle to sell.

“See Hardwell? I can push this shit too,” Deadmau5 finished. “And I didn’t have to go to a board meeting or nothing.”

Watch the full livestream below. Deadmau5 has since hinted at a second Au De Toilet fragrance, called “Pussywhipped By Meowingtons”.
