Apple CEO trolls Alabama with ‘one extra second’ joke


Part of the fun of college football is the heated rivalries and the pride and passion that you keep with you no matter how old you or famous you get. Apple CEO Tim Cook is an alum of the University of Auburn, so you know that his hatred for the Alabama Crimson Tide must roll deep and he wasn’t afraid to show that.

During an acceptance speech after receiving a Lifetime Achievement Award from the university, Cook took the opportunity to take a shot at his heated rivals.

Cook went back to the Auburn Tigers epic win over Alabama during his speech, when he used a “one extra second” joke to poke fun at the final play from the Iron Bowl that helped pave the way for Auburn to earn a berth in BCS Championship Game.

To see the acceptance speech, you can check out the video below (Cook’s joke comes shortly after the one minute mark.
