For those who don’t know, DeadMau5, aka Joel Thomas Zimmerman, is an Electronic Dance Music DJ. The story goes that when he was young his computer stopped working and he smelled a strange odor. He took his computer apart and found a dead mouse. After telling the story to others he became known as ‘the dead mouse guy’. Joel began using ‘Deadmouse’ as a screen name in chat rooms, and later shortened it to ‘Deadmau5’.
When he became a DJ, he took the Deadmau5 moniker with him, and he developed a distinctive mouse head that he wears at shows. When Joel became famous his ‘Mou5head’ hit the main stream and is especially popular as part of a Halloween costume.Building a DeadMau5 head has become so popular that there are How To videos available on YouTube and tutorials on Instructables.com.
