Pharrell’s tall felt fedora became much of the social media amusement as commentators on Twitter and Instagram liked it to the hat of Curious George’s owner (the man in the big yellow hat), Smokey the bear and even the Arby’s restaurant sign. Although poorly received by the internet it, Pharrell’s irrefutable statement piece didn’t stop him from winning big last night.
Although distracting Pharrell’s fedora must have been his lucky hat because he walked away with a long overdue Grammy award for Producer of the Year. In addition, he aided in the assist of his odd french connection, Daft Punk and Neil Rogers in accepting a Grammy for Best Pop duo/group performance for the song “Get Lucky”.
French electronic music duo Daft Punk came to the Grammy awards; cruised through without uttering a word and left with some major wins. They received awards for both Record of the year; “Get Lucky” and Album of the year, “Random Access Memories”.
The critics may have Re-Tweeted and Re-posted but it is evident that Pharrell and Daft Punk had the last laugh.
