Was there really always a hat? Since time immemorial? Since the Creation? Or, perhaps, always in a finite time period that is relevant to the puzzle?

Is the type of hat relevant?
Is it a hat that could be worn on the head?
Was this hat on a person? an animal? a graphic drawing? or set in a particular place?

So there WAS a hat - but not now?

Is the hat a casual style? formal style? worn by military? required for safety?
A man's hat? A woman's hat?

Hmmm... so let me get this straight.
This is NOT about how there is a Superman in every Seinfeld episode?

Is it an illusion? Something that looks like a top hat but isn't, or something that is a hat but sometimes looks like something else?

Maybe it's like those photo bombers where the hat just ran around and would randomly be in every photo someone took at a wedding, prom, etc. That's sometimes what I would do since I didn't have any friends to talk to and I couldn't get anyone to dance with me. And people would look at the pictures later and be like, "What the fizzle! Docta Peppa is in the background of every picture!"

Beat me to the Magritte question, Arek!

In the knitting world there are bloggers who always hold up a sock in progress in their travel photos. There are extra points if they can get someone famous to hold it for them - without explaining why. Obama obliged for one blogger.

So - like Doctapeppa asked, is it something like that?
