TwitterFacebook

Why are bowling animations like this? 

If you’ve ever been bowling, you probably remember the absurd 3D-animated scenes that played after each turn. Sometimes it’s an anthropomorphic pin flashing you a thumbs up after a strike, jerkily rubbing its bowling pin head as if you personally hurt it.
