    'Shot on iPhone 7' - Tim Cook's Blurry Super Bowl iPhone Photo Sets Off Twitter Memes

    Apple CEO Tim Cook takes a picture with his iPhone while addressing graduates during George Washington University's commencement exercises on the National Mall, Sunday, May 17, 2015 in Washington. The university awarded Cook with an honorary doctorate of public service.

    The internet never forgives — or forgets.

    Like most of the 70,000 other people watching the Super Bowl at Levi’s Stadium Sunday, Apple CEO Tim Cook also tweeted out a photo of the moment the Broncos beat the Panthers — golden confetti raining down and all.

    That (very blurry) photo set off a thousand memes.

    One of the first tweets came from the Twitter account Soju Boy Tell ‘Em, which appears to belong to Andy Koh, a photographer and filmmaker based out of New York.

    “New iPhone campaign starring @tim_cook,” Koh tweeted, along with a picture of Cook’s blurry photo photoshopped on a “Shot on iPhone 6” billboard campaign, which claims that the camera on the iPhone 6s/6s Plus is just as good as a DSLR.

    “Someone should upgrade him to the 7+ so he has some image stabilization,” tweeted @Dan_H.

    One Twitter user tweeted out a blurry of Tim Cook, asking: “Hi Tim, can you replace your profile picture for this one? Thanks.”

    “You take this with an iPad?” asked @dco.

    “Someone get him a Samsung S6 edge plus or LG G4 #iPhoneFail,” tweeted @MenaceSlinger.

    “Was this pic taken with a toaster?” Tweeted @@KKaplanis

    Cook tweeted out another picture of the celebrations later.

    This one, the Twittersphere agreed, was much better that the previous.

    One Twiiter user joked: "Ironically, the better photo was posted via Twitter for iPad…"
