Only you can prevent forest fires … and fashion faux pas. 

Pharrell Williams is a man of many hats. Sure, he’s a rapper, a producer, a fashion designer, a singer-songwriter, etc. But he also owns a surprising number of actual hats.

The one he wore to the Grammy Awards on Sunday night was wacky enough to start a meme of its own. The Canadian Mountie-styled cap inspired comparisons to Smokey the Bear and the Arby’s restaurant logo.

Here’s just a sampling:

Pharrell may have taken home a Grammy for Best Pop Group with Daft Punk, but two novelty accounts and countless headlines later, it seems that his hat had a bigger night.

The must-listen music from the 2014 Grammy Awards
Everyone except indignant rappers knows that the Grammys have a rich history of being behind the times. I mean they're still nominating Ludwig van Beethoven.
