Pharrell’s Hat Had A Point. He’s Also Got Jokes On Everyone.

NYMag’s The Cut is the only outlet I’ve seen report this. It seems Pharrell’s hat was actually an elaborate fashion reference that throws all of the Smokey The Bear/Arbys/Curious George/Diglett references into sharp relief. Seems they’re not as clever as they thought they were.

Buffalo Girls (the video above), was first performed in 1844 by a Blackface minstrel singer, before it got picked up by the heads who re-did it. It’s actually just super retro, so, there’s your morning idle chatter salvo for you.
