I have seen like 10 dumb fucks wearing "panda hats" at Coachella. I think they are trying to copy the style of the doof off the Real World. If you see someone with a Panda Hat on, kindly punch them in the face.
The hats became popular as a marketing gimmick by the Giants for Pablo 'Panda' Sandoval. As they are generic and don't have anything SF or Giants related on them they've become a nationwide trend. Ravers love em cuz they're soft and furry. And an animal. Ravers fucking love animals.
Coachella 07 (the introduction), 08 (the bands), 09 (the documentary), 10 (the people i came with), 11 (the relationship test... we passed), 12 (whatever the weather, Dirty Epic forever), 13 (the year of the troll)
