Movie Night: What Happens in UV-and-Chill Stays in UV-and-Chill… Until Now

Movie Night: What Happens in UV-and-Chill Stays in UV-and-Chill… Until Now

Movie Night: What Happens in UV-and-Chill Stays in UV-and-Chill… Until NowIt’s not all fun and games working for a tech consultancy that has launched successful projects for speedy Converse, connected Samsung, melodic Fender, and informative National Geographic — just to name a handful. (I apologize if that sounds like boasting.) Sometimes we get together to watch movies, too!

Of course, because of the nature of ArganoUV, being spread out across continents, as well as the current, temporary circumstances we find ourselves in regarding the pandemic, our latest hangout was virtually awesome.

ArganoUV and chill

Having three offices around the world, with more than 100 employees, online communication is not just something we’re very good at, it’s something that has been instilled in us and enforced on a daily basis. But with everything that’s going on around the globe, we wanted to maintain morale and reconnect with one another on a personal level. So we created a new Slack channel: uv-and-chill.

Then we decided to host ArganoUV’s first ever movie night, where we’d watch a fun film, uncork some wine and crack open some ice cream. We first discussed which films to shortlist before holding it to a vote (because we support and practice democracy).

The best part of the night wasn’t the film, although the one we voted for, Grandma’s Wedding, provided us with some giggles and questionable romances. The best part was what was happening offscreen. We all watched the film together while zooming, chatting in the margins. And some intriguing topics emerged over the course of 100 minutes.

There is photographic evidence of those who attended the zoomed movie, but the sources of each topic have asked to keep their identities anonymous.

  • We spoke of brands of tequila, and sounded extreme caution of the deadlier brands on the market. 
  • We compared the king of rock, Elvis Presley, with Argentine cumbian singer Pocho La Pantera (who is definitely worth a quick glance on Google Images — imagine a weightier parody version of Elvis).
  • Some of our Mexico-based team taught the rest of us the specifics of the term “chilango”.
  • We encouraged one notable UVer — who is particularly fond of his collection of flowery, colorful shirts — to share photos of some of his favorites to the rest of the group.
  • We made a drinking game in which every time a character in the film said “güey” we all had to drink.
  • Then there was a quick poll to see whether any of us had butt tattoos… which was a secret ballot. The results are subject to a gag order! Phew.

Movie Night: What Happens in UV-and-Chill Stays in UV-and-Chill… Until NowDid Grandma actually get married? How many tequila, beer, and wine bottles were emptied that night? And were there hangovers the following day? These questions still remained unanswered — except for the first, which I’m not going to tell you. Until our second ArganoUV movie night, with all its unfolding topics and controversies, adiós, güey.
