WATCH: Marshmello tries to fool everyone by 'removing his mask' at MMVAs

News : 27 Aug 2018 : Steve Gervais
In a joke that, I must admit, is getting a bit tired now, Marshmello has swapped his clothing and helmet with DJ Shawn Mendes, doing the big reveal at the 2018 iHeartRadio MTV music awards. 
The iHeartRadio MMVAs are annual awards presented by the Canadian television channel Much to honour the year's best music videos, and once again Marshmello has pretended to be someone else, by revealing the man beneath the mask is none other than Shawn Mendes. 

Aside from the fact that this has been done a few times already, we already know who the real Marshmello is. When a mystery is no longer a mystery it doesn't really work when you keep pretending it's a mystery!

Whereas for Marshmello this mystery was a real draw to his image, other DJs who wear a helmet aren't necessarily that mysterious. Possibly the OG mask wearers, Daft Punk, are, like all the others, defined by this image, but Deadmau5 actually DJs helmetless quite often, showing the world that there is more to DJing that just a gimmicky image. 

He even went so far as to saying he wished he didn't have to wear it:



Anyway, check out the video below.

 

Well, I guess it’s not a secret anymore... @shawnmendes
