TORONTO — Rob Ford and Deadmau5 went on a coffee run together, proving opposites really do attract.
The unlikely duo traveled to a local Tim Hortons drive-thru in Toronto earlier this week, and all 30 glorious minutes were caught on video. Deadmau5, a Canadian electronic musician based in the city, posted a YouTube clip of himself driving the embattled Toronto mayor around in his Nyan Cat-themed Ferrari.
Among their conversational topics: the "Purrari," football, mayoral governance, traffic, the game of Risk and potholes on Toronto's roads. For most of the video, Ford and Deadmau5 get along swimmingly, with the mayor bursting out in occasional fits of laughter.
At the drive-thru, Deadmau5 gets an "extra-large double-double," while Ford orders an eye-popping "five espressos in one cup."
“That’s cardiac arrest,” Deadmau5 tells him in response. “How much caffeine is in that? You should check."
I don't have much to do with politics. I just like free coffee. Who doesn't like free coffee? sheesh #coffeerun

The musician posted "Coffe Run- Rob Ford" on YouTube Wednesday. He also highlighted the following disclaimer, which is included in the video's "about" section:
Dear Stupid, this is a coffee run. This does not reflect my political views, or views on anything really... *cep't for maybe my views on Toronto traffic, stupid ass drivers, stupid f*ckin potholes, and my caffeine intake or any other stupid sh*t that comes out of my mouth.p.s. stop being stupid.

Ford's appearance is part of a YouTube show created by Deadmau5, called Coffee Run, according to multiple reports. The musician has previously interviewed other celebrities on his show, including Pharrell and comedian Tom Green. Think of it as a more relaxed, R-rated version of Jerry Seinfeld's Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.
