Pharrell’s happy hat causes buzz at Grammy Awards

WASHINGTON – Missed out on this year’s Grammy Awards? Well, we picked one of the most memorable moments … out of a hat.

“The back of your head is ridiculous,” would be an understatement when talking about the brown hat singer Pharrell Williams, 40, wore at the Grammy Awards.

As The Huffington Post highlights, the hat has been compared to Harry Potter’s wizard hat, Smokey the bear’s hat and Luigi’s hat in the movie, “Ratatouille.”

The infamous hat unavoidably caught the attention of Grammy attendees and viewers, as well as the fast food restaurant, Arby’s. The fast-food chain’s official Twitter account tweeted at him during the show saying, “Hey @Pharrell, can we have our hat back? #GRAMMYs.”

Perhaps Pharrell felt bad about including McDonald’s in his “Happy” music video and wanted to reconcile with Arby’s.

E! Online reports that within 30 minutes of Pharrell’s hat reveal, a Twitter account was made named, @PharrellHat. This account has already gained more than 15,000 followers.

Who knows which hat Pharrell will choose for Grammys 2015. It sure will be difficult to top this one.
