This GIF was created using Adobe Photoshop CC. To those of you that did not go to Auburn, this may just look like a bunch of toilet paper blowing in the wind, but to Auburn fans it is the sight of victory. I filmed this particular bit of victory on the night of Auburn’s decisive victory over a #1 ranked Alabama in the 2017 Ironbowl.

The tradition of rolling Toomer's Corner is said to have begun when Toomer's Drugstore on the infamous Toomer’s Corner had the only telegraph in the city. During away football games, when employees of the local drug store received news of a win, they would throw the ticker tape from the telegraph onto the power lines. The beginning of the tradition of throwing toilet paper into the trees, power lines and every other stationary object on the corner, however, is open to debate.
