It’s back and it’s better than ever.
For all it’s faults, social media does have the undeniable ability to bring people together in support of a good cause. And ahhhh McCain, you’ve just gone and bloody done it again.

AT LONG LAST HERE IT IS, THE GREATEST HAT EVER MADE – THE RAGE CORDUROY CAP – what a miraculous journey it has been to this moment, it all started 5 months ago when I was thinking up which brands to include in the Hat Election (the contest to determine the next target in the Campaign for Cord) – I stumbled home half cut from a night out sinkin schooeys and turned on the Tele to the comfortingly aggressive sound of the Rage theme song – then it struck me like a zap on the jatz crackers when jumping over an electric fence on the farm – A RAGE CORD CAP – I knew from that moment on that I needed nothing more in my life than this cap and that I would do whatever it took to make it happen – the Rage hat went on to easily thrash all other competitors in the Hat Election, and then the real fight began – the Australian Hat Enthusiast Community launched a full frontal assault on the ABC’s social media accounts, posting thousands of blue hat emojis in the comments section – meanwhile behind the scenes I enlisted the support of some of Australia’s biggest music stars to pressure ABC management – after 2 months of solid campaigning morale was beginning to falter and I began to plan a dramatic escalation in tactics, including entering serious discussions to buy a billboard space on a major highway, and plans for a major protest outside ABC HQ in Ultimo – but then out of the blue Triple J’s Ben and Liam got my young nephew Billy on air and announced the release of this incredible lid AND NOW, FINALLY, IT IS ON MY NOGGIN – thank you to everyone who took part in this campaign and made this lid a reality – together we’ve demonstrated that when enough people fight for a cause they believe in great things can happen – at the end of the day this isn’t just a beautiful hat, IT IS A POWERFUL SYMBOL OF DEMOCRACY IN ACTION
But, this isn’t the first big win @hatsgreatesthits has had. Before this, iconic Saturday morning music television program Rage was campaigned to create a gorgeous corduroy hat. So, what will the people demand next? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
