Pharrell Sells Now-Infamous Hat To Mega Fast Food Chain

Posted By on March 3, 2014

At this years Grammy awards Pharrell Williams rocked a hat that is now-infamous for being oversized and it became the talk of the Grammy’s. Now reports claim Williams auctioned off his hat for over $40,000.

According to reports, the hat is now owned by the huge fast food chain Arby’s.

 Pharrell Williams’ infamous Vivienne Westwood “Jell Mould” hat has been sold on eBay to a philanthropic, hat-loving person for $44,100 today. This headpiece-loving person, it turns out, is actually the fast-food chain Arby’s, whose love for Pharrell’s hat is well-documented. (NY Mag)

 Pharrell took to his Twitter account to announce he decided to send all the earnings to a good cause.

 Williams revealed on Twitter that the money from the sale will go to the charity One Hand to AnOTHER, but, fortunately for losing bidders, there are many, many more chances to win Pharrell’s hats, as he’s also worn them to Art Basel, Oscar pre-parties, and onstage during his performance of “Happy” at the Oscars tonight. Or you could just buy one from the Vivienne Westwood boutique for $180. But the better question is: how much will his Lanvin shorts eventually sell for? (NY Mag)
