Good morning! Were you hoping to become the proud owner of Pharrell’s now-famous Grammys hat? Are you a fast food chain that specializes in spongy roast beef? If you answered yes to the first question and no to the second, then unfortunately you’re out of luck.
Last month, we told you that Pharrell had put the giant hat on eBay, with the proceeds going to benefit his charity From One Hand to Another. Many noted the hat’s similarity to the Arby’s logo, and now Arby’s officially owns the hat which just goes to show you that everything good and fun eventually turns into an advertisement someday.

Anyway, congrats to Arby’s on your #viral moment. I’m still not eating your weird meat.
(The real winners here are the children served by One Hand to Another and the $44,000 donation it just got.)
