Pharrell Williams’ Grammy Hat Has Actually Been Around For Years

“Oh snap, I’m running late—let me just grab these clothes from the bottom of my closet and bounce,” Pharrell Williams said, 20 minutes before he showed up on the Grammys red carpet looking like Dudley Do Right-meets-Run DMC (though the interwebz is dead set on Smokey Bear). No, but really, he is probably the only person at the awards show who can say, “I woke up like dih.”

As it turns out, his Mounties-esque hat—which miiight be the red carpet’s fastest-ever meme (it already has its own Twitter handle, of course)—has been in the singer’s rotation since at least 2009. We’re not hating, though. It’s moments like this that make the Grammys red carpet the most fun to watch throughout awards season. It’s probably the best thing to happen to Arby’s in years, too—see the resemblance?
