Every one laughed.
His hat went viral. Which means Twitter Blew UP!
Which means everyone who saw Pharrell's hat was talking and laughing and exclaiming about his goofy Dudley Do Right Mounty-esque hat.
Now. Pharrell has been in the music business since the early nineties. He produced big hits with Snoop Dog, Kanye West. Jay Z and Destiny's Child. People in the industry knew Pharrell. The general public did not.
I had never heard of him until last summer when his name came up a few times. He of Blurred Lines and Lucky. Both of these songs were nominated for Grammy's. Both of these songs were my summer favorites along with Safe and Sound.
Also last summer Despicible Me 2 featured Pharrell's joyous song Happy.
The song Happy was nominated for an academy award earlier this winter.
We saw the movie...I was not overly impressed with the song Happy. Nor was the public...and it was not played and didn't catch on...until after Pharrell wore the HAT.
Happy was not being played on the radio. It did not play all summer. It did not play in the fall. In fact, it has just become wildly popular since Pharrell sang it at the Oscars. Wearing another hat.
I do not think his song would have been nominated for an Oscar if he had not worn that HAT to the Grammys!
Everyone is noticing now.
A new kind of 'cat' in a hat.
The only other hat I can think of that changed a person's life was possibly this one...
Harrison Ford donned this great hat in Indiana Jones and the Lost Ark and there was not looking back.
Other notable hat wearers.....
Isn't life something?
