Arby’s got its hat back from Pharrell Williams. According to Rolling Stone on Mar. 3, the fast-food chain won the "Smokey the Bear" hat worn by Williams at the Grammys in an auction on eBay.

Following the Grammys, Arby’s toyed with Williams about the hat on Twitter, claiming that the Vivienne Westwood hat looked like their logo and wanted it back. The hat itself took on such a life of its own that the Grammy winner decided to auction the hat off on eBay last week with proceeds to benefit "From One Hand to Another," an organization Williams founded in 2008.

On Sunday night, Arby’s announced that they won the auction and purchased the hat for $44,100. They revealed their identity in a reply tweet to Williams after he thanked whoever bought the famous hat. Arby's Twitter page stated:

You’re welcome. We’re HAPPY to support a great cause & get our hat back. Good luck at the #Oscars tonight!”

Williams didn’t win on Sunday night, but he did perform the song “Happy” during the 86th Academy Awards show. During his performance he wore another version of the mountain hat that seems to becoming his trademark look.
