When it came time to debut the video for his high-octane single “Professional Griefers,” Deadmau5 knew where to turn: the equally aggressive world of ultimate fighting.
On September 1st, Deadmau5 will unveil his clip during the UFC Jones vs. Henderson pay-per-view match. It features the recent Rolling Stone cover star locked in a futuristic gladiatorial bout with his guest vocalist, Gerard Way of My Chemical Romance. True to form, both combatants control oversized, CGI “mau5” robots.
The video won’t be released online until August 29th, but you can check out some exclusive promo posters of the would-be UFC warriors here.
“Professional Griefers” appears on Deadmau5’s > album title goes here <, due September 25th on Ultra Music. Check out footage of the video shoot below.
