Tim Cook’s alma mater fires up T-shirt Gatling gun



School spirit is seemingly alive and well at Tim Cook’s alma mater of Auburn University, courtesy of a, err, T-shirt Gatling gun.

The video appeared on YouTube, via Wall Street Journal Apple reporter Daisuke Wakabayashi, and shows free t-shirts being fired into the crowd at a recent Auburn Tigers game.

Two things leap out from the video. The first one: we hope no-one was hurt by what looks to be a military barrage of clothing. Secondly: was the above video shot using the new dazzling 240fps slo-mo feature of the iPhone 6?

Tim Cook graduated from Auburn University with a bachelor’s degree in industrial engineering in 1982, before going on to earn his M.B.A. from Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business in the late ’80s.

In 2011 he gave a commencement speech at the institution, in which he thanked Steve Jobs for his success, and described how joining Apple turned out to be the “best decision of my life.”
