Watch Rob Ford get coffee with Deadmau5, order “five espressos in one cup”
The video above is 30 minutes’ worth of footage of Rob Ford, mayor of Toronto, riding in a cat-themed Ferrari with Deadmau5, EDM musician, to get some coffee from a Tim Hortons drive-through. It’s every bit as weird and awkward as that short description would suggest.
There are plenty of people we’d rather have seen Ford locked in a moving vehicle with (like, any member of the city hall press gallery, for instance), but this thing does have its merits. It’s a rare look at what Ford is like when he’s not in campaign mode—when he’s just trying to relax and act like a cool dude. Some standout moments to watch for:
2:27— Rob Ford on football: “I love football. It’s cool.”
10:20— Rob Ford, talking about why he doesn’t often drive really fast on the highway, like Deadmau5 does: “Cops catch me, I’m toast. That’s the problem.”
12:30— Rob Ford’s Tim Hortons order: “Five espressos in one cup.” (!?!?)
13:45— Rob Ford gets the giggles.
21:25— Rob Ford criticizes people who drive while distracted, which is ironic, considering.
26:00— Rob Ford says his brother gets board-flippingly angry when he loses at Risk, but doesn’t specify which brother.
