Arby’s ‘Happy’ to Get Hat Back from Pharrell Williams
Pharrell Williams’ infamous Grammy hat is back where it belongs, in the hands of Arby’s. The fast food chain purchased the hat on eBay for a pretty penny.
Shortly after the Grammys, Pharrell Williams auctioned off his Vivienne Westwood “Mountain” hat on eBay. It was Arby’s who outbid everyone else with $44,100 to secure the hat that so closely resembles their logo.
Pharrell tweeted the news with Arby’s responding:

All of the money will go to Pharrell’s nonprofit organization, “From One Hand to Another” in his hometown of Virginia Beach. The charity is designed to help youth between the ages of seven and 20 who live in at-risk communities across the nation.
Props to Arby’s for jumping on this positive press opportunity. Now go get some curly fries!
