Oddjob's hat...SOLD!

I was cruising IMDB and found this little tidbit in their news section:

Oddjob's Hat Sells at Auction

The most terrifying hat in movie history went under the hammer for $33,600 in Los Angeles on Saturday when James Bond villain Oddjob's derby was sold at auction. The steel-rimmed hat, worn by actor Harold Sakata, who played henchman Oddjob in 1964 film Goldfinger, was bought by 007 memorabilia hunter Anthony Pugliese III. He plans to display the famous derby at a new pop culture museum in Florida. Other highlights of the Julien's Auction sale included a belt Elvis Presley wore during his 1972 concert in Honolulu, which sold for a staggering $66,000 - over six times its expected price, and the red gown Dustin Hoffman wore as a cross-dressing soap star in Tootsie, which fetched $26,400.

Can anyone name a movie that parodies/pays homage to Oddjob's hat? Name movie and scene, please. I have one in mind but I won't post it in the comments yet. Penalty points for Googling.

Austin Powers: Goldmember? o_0

Possibly Goldmember. I was thinking Toy Story 2, when Mr. Potato Head threw his bowler between the doors (either at Al's Toy Barn or Al's apartment) to stop them from closing.

WHAT?? Even if you don't have kids the movie is still funny. What is the worst that could happen, you lose a hour and a half of your day? Anyway, it is a good movie, not as good as the first, but it is funny.
