Ants can be mysterious creatures.
Video uploaded to YouTube by ViralVideoLab shows ants just doing ant things and marching in all different directions, with no regard for the iPhone in the middle of it all.
But then the phone started ringing and something eerie happened: The ants started circling the phone. Ant-mind control or nah?
One commenter shared a video explaining why ants do this kind of thing. Basically, this is what ants do when they say “uncle.”
If ants get scared they release trail pheromones so that they can get everyone back to the colony safely. Before you know it, the ants are scared but not going anywhere.
