It wasn’t just the crazy mouse hat worn by electronic dance-music DJ deadmau5 that got him attention at the Grammys.

The Grammy-nominated DJ pranked his DJ pal Skrillex by showing up on the red carpet Sunday wearing a black T-shirt featuring Skrillex’s cellphone number over the catchphrase “U mad bro?”

On Twitter, Skrillex tweeted: “Haha @deadmau5 just wore my phone number on his [expletive] shirt on tv gotta retire this phone.”

He apparently followed through. The number is now disconnected.

Skrillex got the last laugh, though, besting his buddy by winning three Grammys. Deadmau5 got zero.

Cook County Commissioner John Fritchey is apparently a fan of deadmau5 — or a fan of his headgear at the very least.

Fritchey tweeted Sunday night: “If I get my hands on a fully functional Deadmau5 hat, I’ll wear it to every County Board meeting.”
