deadmau5 Announced As Special Guest For Cat Film Festival
Toronto International Film Festival Inc. has announced the return of the Just For Cats Festival, and no conversation about Toronto and cats is complete without mention of deadmau5. The progressive house icon will be a special guest at the festival, which will feature showings of the most popular cat videos on the internet and will donate ticket proceeds to the Toronto Humane Society.
As with a handful of other famous DJs, the 'mau5 has spared no means in making his love of felines known. From the legal disputes surrounding the Purrari to the extensive following of his own cat, Professor Meowingtons PhD, the "Some Chords" producer makes as likely a candidate as any for the quirky event's special guest. Whether or not the video of Meowingtons attacking deadmau5 will be included in a reel at the festival remains to be seen. In case it isn't, you can watch it in all its glory here:
Astoundingly, deadmau5 stands no chance of being the event's most controversial special guest. During last year's edition, Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper's wife, Laureen Harper, was interrupted onstage by a protestor by the name of Hailey King, who asked why a charity event for cats was more important than addressing a missing persons case that had been going on at the time. Stiff competition for a mere Twitter troll indeed.
