CoolGames Inc Animated: ‘Bloon,’ a balloon for your phone

Tired of dropping your phone in line at Subway? There’s an app for that

In this week’s CoolGames Inc animation, Griffin pitches Nick on his killer new app idea — and by “app idea,” we mean “just taking a regular old balloon and tying it around your cellular telephone of choice, thereby preventing any sort of damage the phone might sustain were you to accidentally drop it on the ground.”

CoolGames Inc Animated is created by Polygon’s own Clayton Ashley — you can follow him on Twitter at @Clayton_Ashley. To catch up on past episodes of CoolGames Inc Animated, look no further than our full YouTube playlist, featuring both our own official animations and some of our favorite fan creations.

Last but not least, we like to show off one CoolGames Inc fan creation every week. This time around, we’re highlighting a video from YouTube user Mondo Maxo, who animated the short-lived “Pig Horny” — a game that is, in this humble author’s opinion, one of the most underrated CoolGames Inc submissions of all time. Thanks, Mondo Maxo!
