There’s nothing unusual about cannon fire at Raymond James Stadium. Shooting a guy out of a cannon? Unusual.

To promote it’s new, pirate-themed, multiplayer video game game Sea of Thieves, Xbox was in Tampa on Tuesday to fire David “The Bullet” Smith from what it’s calling the “Xbox Pirate Blaster.”

The 34-foot-long cannon reportedly took “The Bullet” from 0 to 60 mph in one-fifth of a second, sending him flying 200 feet and setting a Guinness World Record.
