    What would you do if you had a pill that gave you extendable arms? Bring a whole new world within your reach. A brand new pill: Ugrow, you but better. The series of animated GIFs, created to promote a fake brand of pills called Ugrow, uses comedy to provoke a reflection of our society and how we constantly try to define our self through acts of consumption, in an attention-seeking culture. The short film is the result of a year long project that developed as a mini web series, as well as social media pages with Instagram running alongside content providing snapshots of Ugrow users around the world.
