In a stroke of marketing genius, Nissan has photoshopped a GT-R with the famous Nyan Cat design and offered the car to deadmau5. Last week, we reported that Ferrari served deadmau5 with a cease and desist order in regards to his wildly popular Purrari. Deadmau5 heeded the cease and desist and unwrapped his Nyan Cat-covered Ferrari 458 Spider.
Whoever came up with the idea to try and replicate the Purrari on a GT-R deserves a raise. Following Ferrari's decision, the situation was ripe for any car company to swoop in and generate some buzz. This is a creative way to insert Nissan into a conversation with one of dance music's biggest stars. As of this writing, the tweet has 2,200 retweets, and deadmau5 has positively responded to their tweet. Take a look at their Twitter exchange below.
