I come to you, hat in hand

In search of clips, gifs, pictures, or other media that shows someone punching a hole through a hat. Other hats acceptable, but preferably a straw boater hat. It absolutely must be a hat that is being punched.

The scene at the end of "Mary Poppins".

D'oh! The Mary Poppins hat-punching scene delicately pans away so that the viewers don't have to see the destruction of the poor hat. (It would be around 2:15 in this video).

You do get to see the umbrella turned inside-out, though.

This Abbot & Costello sketch has a half-dozen hats being punched.

Man, we really have covered a lot of obscure questions previously on AskMe.

Wild, that did not come up when I was searching. It was like 7 years ago, though, so hopefully this question will have some more activity. I believe in you, mefi!

Sir Ian Holm in Chariots of Fire (celebratory hat punch @ ~6:45 in the linked video). Also, mentioned (but not linked) in the previously mentioned Ask MeFi thread.

I understand Rod Stewart hated the boater that Britt Ekland gave him to wear for the cover of the A NIght on the Town album.
