Yep, that DeadMau5 is a real funny fucker. To no one's surprise, the DJ revealed this afternoon he did not, in fact, lose an unreleased PlayStation Vita in a Los Angeles cab after his performance at last night's Spike Video Game Awards.
"I just wanted to see how much management would freak out over it, trolololol," wrote Deadmau5, whose real name is Joel Zimmerman, on his Facebook page. He supplied that image above.
You think I think management freaked out over this? It utterly reeks of a publicity stunt and even if it isn't, I'm sure Sony's delighted by the attention, and news accounts discussing what a valuable piece of hardware the Vita is.
[Update] We've had a robust argument over whether or not this thing actually could have been lost. Whatever the case, Deadmau5 has told at least one fib in this scenario. Which do you think is more likely?
