Deadmau5 Says Zac Efron’s Latest Box Office Bomb Restored His ‘Faith in Music’

“We Are Your Friends” is suffering from one of the worst openings in history after only grossing $1.97 million, so far

At least one person is happy that “We Are Your Friends” bombed at the box office its opening weekend.

Deadmau5, a popular EDM artist, said the tanker restored his faith in music, and took to Twitter to mock the meager opening of the movie starring Zac Efron as an aspiring DJ trying to make it in Los Angeles’ electronic dance music scene.

The DJ traded blows about the film with fellow EDM artist Trifonic, who ripped Efron’s pronunciation of synthesizer manufacturer Buchla. 

“We Are Your Friends” opened to $1.8 million last weekend. The abysmal return makes it rank as the third worst opening for a movie in box office history. The film had a budget of $6 million, but Warner Bros. acquired the rights to it for $2 million from Studiocanal in November.
