[VIDEO] Deadmau5 Snags a UFC Sponsorship, Then Pisses All Over It In Latest Music Video


(We should be surprised that not ONE of those dudes is checking out Arianny’s ass, right?) 

I’m going to come right out and say it: I don’t get Dubstep. It’s loud and annoying for the sake of being loud and annoying, and 95% of the songs I have heard seem to aimlessly drift between bass drops and cartoonish, cookie-cutter sound effects blatantly lifted from “artist” to “artist” before coming to a crashing, albeit relieving end. In my opinion, Dubstep is little more than the musical personification of the ever-increasing laziness and style-over-substance attitude of current American society. It is the genre Michael Bay would have created if he wasn’t too busy giving the world cinematic diabetes. So on a musical level, I find pretty much everything that the character known as deadmau5 has created to be utterly incompetent horseshit.

And it appears that his music video for the track “Professional Griefers,” which somehow managed to snag the endorsement of the UFC, falls right in line with that belief.

Not only does the video portray MMA fans as drunken, inbred rednecks, but this Dead Mouse feller even has the balls to replace legendary UFC announcer Bruce Buffer with some roided-up neanderthal behind the mic. But hey, IT’S GOT COMPUTER ANIMATED FIGHTS AND CRASHBOOMRAWR, YOU GUYS!! And Arianny Celeste’s breasts even make an appearance, so it’s all good!

I believe the term I’m looking for is earbortion.

You remember how we posed a question yesterday regarding the evolution of MMA fans? Well, I think I can now feel which way the wind is blowing.

J Jones, go take some MDMA or acid and go somewhere with bright lights. Then come back and tell us if you hate dubstep.

I hate dubstep. But in the right circumstances it is a gift from the heavens

Arguing with the readers = professional. You're not a writer. You're a whiner. Go back to yelp.

Go whine with that other angry dude Karma.

I understand that voicing your opinion as a writer to a large audience can be misinterpreted often, but your humor comes off as tasteless and juvenile. Not to mention you're arguing with your readers through the comment board, as the writer why even give someone the satisfaction of replying?

@Shaky - I enjoy everything from heavy metal (Pantera, Between the Buried and Me, Opeth) to world music (Dead Can Dance, Anathema) to classical (Debussy, Brahms). Not a big fan of Toby Keith and his "Red Solo Cup", lowest-common-denominator, pandering tunes however. Also, when attempting to call someone AUDIBLY illiterate, whatever that means, make sure to use the actual word.
Shaky- August 30, 2012 at 7:19 am
...and yes, to make electronic music, you need talent.
I love Led Zeppelin, Joe Higgs, Neil Young, TV on the Radio...all that good shit, but lets be honest, pretty much any music you can make with a guitar, bass and drums has been done. Electronic music is where the innovation is happening.

J.Jones can you please mention some music you do like? Because if you say Toby Keith, then we'll just know you were a goddamn, audially illiterate all along

Dubstep isn't even American. It comes from London, where it evolved from DnB, Garage, Dub Reggae and the syncopated rythms of our many Carribean peoples. It used to sound quite different till Skrillex turned up and vomit wubbed the shit out of everything.

Want some good dubstep? Listen to Burial, Benga and Mount Kimbie. That stuff is amazing.

Deadmau5 and Skrillex? Not so much...

@Grandma's Nutmeg....I don't think JJ is confusing House with Dubstep, nothing he described above relates to House. The second most popular game we used to play as children was House :) The Bomb-Bucketheads, Magic Carpet ride-Mighty Dub Katz, Flashdance-Deep Dish are some examples of what great House music sounds like. Not sure what Deadmau5 genre is, but it ain't House that's for sure....Vladivostok FM!

All those elegant words to say it sucks? I only made it through three minutes twelve seconds before I had to say something, anything, it didn't have to be smart even. Not to mention they stole the fight thing from "RealSteel" I only made it through fifteen minutes of that but only because I forgot where I was, and who I was, and what I was doing. They both sucked!!!
Mr_Misanthropy- August 29, 2012 at 11:29 pm
Dethmouse? Is that a metalocalypse episode?
Mr_Misanthropy- August 29, 2012 at 11:25 pm
I know. Metal is totally uncool and only fags listen to it. I only like popular music that all my friends listen to at sweeet raves.

*throws on Watain*

You're heavy metal bro. wooo \M/ -_- \M/
Mr_Misanthropy- August 29, 2012 at 11:27 pm
Q: Why do hipsters wear saggy skinny jeans?

A: So they can walk around with poopy diapers and nobody will know.

(I made that one up myself.)
MyFightWiffaCheeto- August 29, 2012 at 7:19 pm
Fuck you Danga... J. JONES whatever your dumbass wants to call yourself. DeadMau5 isn't dubstep you fuckhole. When is Ben going to realize you just squat over a keyboard and whatever your loose stools type you publish on this Site. You're a hack. Do some research before you take a shit on your keyboard next time.
HEY- August 29, 2012 at 6:42 pm
@ Grandmas Nutmeg: Duly noted.
holeeball- August 29, 2012 at 6:40 pm
That maybe so. But I heard about this 205 pounder Sumo Wrestler judoka who may or may not be coming into UFC. Ronda blew him and I hear he's keen on this whole EDM thing.
Shit just got real.
Grandmas Nutmeg- August 29, 2012 at 5:42 pm
@HEY It's the fact he is confusing Dubstep with House music. He took the time to write a music article on an MMA website, and didn't even do it well. Honestly, if they censored out the 10 seconds of Goldberg talking, the 5 seconds of Arianny's tits, and the UFC logo most of you would've never even have known this video existed. There is literally only 4 sentences that have to do with MMA. If you don't speak out about this stupidity we're gonna end up with an endless stream of "What if X fought Y?" articles...oh whoops!
HEY- August 29, 2012 at 5:19 pm
Does a person really need to have extensive knowledge in EDM to hold the opinion that it sounds terrible to them? I mean, dubstep isn't exactly cutting edge genetic research or anything. Besides, opinions are subjective. And the fact that people would give the same award to Skrillex that they gave to Stevie Wonder only cheapens the award (because of Skrillex).
NomadRip- August 29, 2012 at 5:08 pm
Dubstep is just like regular doof-doof dance music without any musical parts like rhythm.

While I agree with your earbortion assessment, it's just regular poppy shit.

I don't like it, but if it keeps the damn kids off my lawn, I'm all for it.

But then again I love this song: http://youtu.be/8Uee_mcxvrw
The12ozCurls- August 30, 2012 at 11:20 am
What the fuck was that Nomad?
I fink u freeky. I also fink you need some medication. thanks for having me watch that train wreck.
Mr_Misanthropy- August 29, 2012 at 4:56 pm
This just in: J Jones is totally not cool, totally not cool you guys.
Mr_Misanthropy- August 29, 2012 at 4:59 pm
totally not cool
unhappy_meal- August 29, 2012 at 4:36 pm
For a dude lamenting the 'laziness and style-over-substance attitude of current American society', you come off uncomfortably close to Just Bleed Guy here, Mr. Jones.

While EDM isn't my favourite genre, t'was awesome for me to see self-sufficient artists like deadmau5 and Skrillex take Grammy nominations/wins this year in place of Britney Spears and Lady Gaga (last year).

IMO the video's fun but the vocals stomp all over a song that was perfectly fine as an instrumental.

p40ampa- August 30, 2012 at 12:01 am
You watch the grammys?
holeeball- August 29, 2012 at 4:11 pm
That's right. If I don't agree with you, you are either a) emo, b) hippie or c) all of the above.

If you agree with me then you're a) one of the good guys :)
Moped banana throne- August 29, 2012 at 3:09 pm
This is similar to when every faux-hardcore dipshit applied the word "emo" to everything pop/alternative they didn't like without actually knowing where the fuck it was coined from in the first place.

You probably own a BC Rich Warlock too, faggot.
MonsterMaulingAss- August 29, 2012 at 3:07 pm
You think this Dubstep? Lets call The Jonas Brothers a rock band while we're at it.
amsterdamheavy- August 29, 2012 at 3:04 pm
Im not into DeadMau5 or that kind of music, but I know who he is and holy shit, you obviously dont have a clue what kind of music this is.

I even have a fav DM song, Deadmau5 and MelleFresh: Hey baby - that shit is hot. (Its teh one song I know, cause I like it, but Im clueless otherwise) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IPDSiL1nH0k

Now, about the video itself, yes, youre dead on with the portrayal of MMA, the fan base, etc.

BUT, your points get lost when you start out by talking out of your ass about something you know nothing about.
BigPhil- August 29, 2012 at 2:55 pm
This ain't dubstep. If you go to deadmau5 show you will become a huge fan.

Now on to more important points. This video does not portray MMA fans as drunken rednecks. There are multiple groups of fans in this video, and the smallest group are rednecks who fight at the end. First of all, way to point out the 1% of the video that makes your argument while leaving out the 99% of the video that doesn't. I wish I could do that in real life. And secondly, if you have ever watched an MMA fight at buffalo wild wings, then you have seen drunken rednecks fight. Lets not sit here and act like people are just making stuff up and get offended just because you happen to be a high brow fart smelling MMA fan and don't want your good name sullied.
