[Click here to view the video in this article]

Germany-based animator and film maker Andreas Hykade has created a simple animation that soundly illustrates what an addiction is like.

Using a simple metaphor of a kiwi (the animal) and a golden, delicious nugget, Hykade animates the little kiwi getting bursts of energy after eating a nugget, but gradually getting weaker and weaker.

The sequence shows how an addiction is formed. Something that starts out harmless eventually changes you for the worse.
