Pharrell Williams and Daft Punk scored big Sunday night (Jan. 26) at the 56th Annual Grammy Awards, but one of the highlights of the awards show was the hat worn by Williams. According to Billboard.com on Jan. 27, Williams’ park ranger looking hat grabbed quite a lot of attention on the internet and a particular restaurant through a few jabs at the winner of the Producer of the Year award.
After the show Williams told Billboard where the hat came from.
“It’s Vivienne Westwood. It’s a Buffalo hat. This gentleman by the name of Malcolm McLaren [designed it]. [he has a] huge history. And I just liked it.”
The hat has most likely gained McLaren some attention as it has turned into one of the highlights of the night. So much so that Arby’s restaurant, the fast food chain known for their beefy sandwiches and cowboy-hat logo, throw in a few jabs at the Grammy winner.
The restaurant’s official site tweeted:
“Hey @Pharrell, can we have our hat back? #GRAMMYs.”
Pharrell Williams jokingly responded with, “Y’all tryna start a roast beef?”
The hat designed by McLaren and the Arby’s logo do look similar, but the way Pharrell wore his hat was a little easier to digest.
Pharrell Williams also drew comparisons to Smokey the Bear as Neil Patrick Harris tweeted:
“Only Pharrell Williams can prevent forest fires.”
With his fashion statement and a sweet of the Grammys, it was quite a night for Mr. Williams.
