One of my favorite movies is The Thing.
Wilford Brimley is the shit. My favorite line is at 2:01.
Kurt Russell plays Jack MacReady and wears the best hat in the whole world in the history of time that's ever been known to man.
In the following pictures I will show you proof.
Here is The Hat in it's first appearance in the movie:
Look, even his fellow actor is captivated by it's beauty and greatness. He can't stop staring at it. Even when they're clearly talkin' about some important shit in the sky.
Here is a scene that represents how mysterious The Hat can look.
And, as Matt pointed out, this also looks a lot like those plywood silhouette standup lawn ornament things you see in Amish country and out in the sticks.
There's an entire scene of some crap in a hole looking upon The Hat in total awe and worshipping it from below.
And here's one of The Hat about to get out of a helicopter. Being accessorized by some rad glacier glasses, a scarf, and Kurt Russell.
Do you need more proof?
