Solve This Puzzle: What Is This Mystery Object?

Artist's Description

This is a multi-part question, so put your thinking caps on. As soon as the object is correctly identified, I’ll give you the follow-up questions.

Solved by Whalegeek a split-second ahead of Sean and Ranald in a rush across the finish line. But here’s the second part of the question: In what specific way is this image connected with a television show?

Solved by Sean Jansen who correctly said it was “That ’70s Show”, in which Wilmer Valderrama played a character called Fez. But here’s the next question: for what specific reason was his on-screen character called “Fez”?

Solved (again) by Sean Jansen who correctly said the word was a corruption of the term “foreign exchange student”.

Here’s the next follow-up question: in what way is this image connected to a world-famous harvest festival? (Hint: think laterally, as everyone is familiar with the answer!)

Solved by proud Scot Ranald who correctly used the thought sequence “Fez-Turkey-Thanksgiving” to solve this part of the question! Yes, the famous harvest festival is Thanksgiving!

I do not crop, enhance or post-edit my images in any way. Shot with a Pentax K100D, using a Sigma 18-125mm lens. F5.6, 1/20 sec, ISO 800, focal length 125mm.
