Pharrell has never shied away from a loud accessory, and his GRAMMY 2014 hat was no exception. When the "Get Lucky" singer showed up to the award show in what looked like an oversized mountie hat, the Internet lost its mind.

Pharrell's hat immediately got its own parody Twitter account, appropriately titled @Pharrellhat, and it got itself about 10,000 followers in just two hours. Pharrell's hat tweeted important GRAMMY insights throughout the night like "hey" and "i keep @Pharrell warm." It also met Beyonce, which is unfair.

The rest of Twitter also had a fun time making fun of Pharrell's headgear. Fans tweeted about what they thought Pharrell looked like with that thing on his head--everything from Smokey the Bear to Twinkie the Kid. But Arby's might have won the whole the Internet when they tweeted, "Hey @Pharrell, can we have our hat back?" referring to the company's famous red hat logo. Pharrell hit them back on Monday with a totally A+ pun: "Y'all tryna start a roast beef?"

Goofy cartoon-inspired hat or not, Pharrell's still a winner: He took home a GRAMMY for Record of the Year and Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for "Get Lucky." (See a list of the rest of the winners.) He also gave a killer performance of the song (in other large, yet slightly less ridiculous topper) with special guest Stevie Wonder.
