Deadmau5 interrupted his wedding to purchase Szechuan sauce for around $15,000
Deadmau5 might have made the biggest commitment to the love of his life over the weekend. But more importantly, he bought a bottle of that Mulan McNugget Szechuan dipping sauce.
Afterall: "what people call "love" is just a chemical reaction that compels animals to breed."
Comicbook.com writer Robert Workman scored close to 2 litres (64oz) of the coveted dipping Szechuan sauce in a special McDonald's giveaway during the Rick and Morty S3 premiere last month. Knowing the size of the show's cult following, the writer seized his chance to make some quick cash out of crazed Rick and Morty fans.
And a lot of quick cash at that. The winning bid was $15,000 US.
Speaking of crazed Rick and Morty fans, on the weekend of his wedding Deadmau5 tweeted "I'm getting that fuckiung szcehuan sauce."
Even if it takes nine more seasons...
Deadmau5 actually lost the auction, with two others bidding higher. However, once the auction closed the top bidders ghosted Workman.
And Deadmau5 wasn't going to let the biggest weekend of his life stop him from getting that McNugget sauce - responding to Workman almost immediately after the writer offered the sauce to Deadmau5 on Twitter.
"Because that’s, that's what this is all about Morty! Szechuan? That’s my series arc!"
And the iconic producer and DJ is willing to share some of those nuggies around with his fans. Even promising he'll bring them to the gaming festival TwitchCon.
Honestly, we have never loved you more Deadmau5. Congratulations and a big ol wubba lubba dub dub.
