OTRC: Pharrell Williams' hat bought by Arby's in eBay auction

Pharrell, wearing a Vivienne Westwood hat, walks the red carpet at the 2014 Grammys on Jan. 26, 2014.

Arby's finally got its hat back from Pharrell Williams.

Back when Williams walked the red carpet at the Grammys on Jan. 26 with the large hat that inevitably launched a several memes and a Twitter parody account, Arby's tweeted at the musician, "Hey @Pharrell, can we have our hat back? #GRAMMYs."

Williams responded on Monday, Jan. 27, "Y'all tryna start a roast beef?"

Then in late February, Williams put the infamous Vivienne Westwood "Mountain" hat up for auction on eBay. The auction was to benefit From One Hand to AnOTHER, a not-for-profit foundation Williams started in 2008. The opening bid was $200, which is what Williams said was the price he paid for the hat.

When the hat went up for auction, Williams tweeted to the fast food chain, "Hey @Arbys, you want my hat? Now's your chance..."

On March 2, the same day Williams performed "Happy" at the Oscar ceremony, he thanked the winning bidder in a tweet.

"Thank you to whoever bought my Grammy hat on @eBay for $44,100. Your donation benefits From One Hand To AnOTHER," he wrote.

Turns out, Arby's had the winning bid and so the company tweeted back to Williams, "@Pharrell You're welcome. We're HAPPY to support a great cause & get our hat back. Good luck at the #Oscars tonight!"

"What a pleasant surprise," Williams responded in a tweet. "Thank you @Arbys, our roast beef is now officially well done."
