Two weeks ago, world-famous web animator Monty Oum, who worked for an Austin-based production company called Rooster Teeth, passed away unexpectedly after suffering an allergic reaction during a routine medical procedure that left him in a coma. In response, his employer asked that anyone who was looking to pay tribute did so creatively – instead of simply sending flowers or gifts.Charlie Strong and the Texas Longhorns, who are also based in Austin, have obliged. The program put together a tribute ball signed by every player. Alan Abdine, director of business development at Rooster Teeth, thanked the Longhorns on Twitter.Huge thanks to Matt Sims and the @Longhorn_FB team from all of us at @RoosterTeeth for the #MontyOum tribute ball. pic.twitter.com/yXpwi8ngms— Alan Abdine (@abdine) February 17, 2015Very cool. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Oum’s family, friends and coworkers.
