The video has gone viral because of the deep message contained in the ants’ actions, which may leave you thinking about many things.
Ben Phillips published the video on Twitter, which shows three ants attempting to climb to a higher leaf. One ant can be seen lending a hand to the others.
While the other ants journey to their destination, the helpful ant stands alone.

“This is the saddest movie ever filmed,” the caption reads.
Opinions and Remarks
The video has received more than four million views and a slew of comments. While some couldn’t help but feel terrible for the ant, others pointed out how the short clip could be applied to everyday life for people.
The caption reads, “Me omw to tread on those two ants.”
“It’s also telling you something about life!” one user exclaims.
They are annoying when they get into your house or when you’re having a picnic, but they are beneficial to the ecosystem.
They are sociable insects, meaning they live in big groups or colonies. Ant colonies can have millions of ants depending on the species.
In a colony, there are three types of ants: the queen, female workers, and males. The workers do not have wings, although the queen and males do.
Only the queen ant has the ability to lay eggs. The job of the male ant is to mate with future queen ants, and they don’t live long after that.
The queen, once she reaches adulthood, spends the remainder of her life laying eggs! A colony may have one queen or numerous queens, depending on the species.
Soldier ants defend the queen, defend the colony, harvest or kill food, and assault enemy colonies in pursuit of food and nesting space in ant colonies.
They collect the eggs of the defeated ant colony if they defeat another ant colony. When the eggs hatch, the new ants become the colony’s “slave” ants.
The colony’s responsibilities include caring for the eggs and young, as well as procuring food for the colony.
Friendships take a turn
Friendships are amazing things; they have the capacity to make a bad day better and provide you with someone to lean on in difficult times.
Not all friendships, however, are healthy and equal. Bring on the egotistical pals.
Take a moment to consider your current friendships and ask yourself if you believe they are all on an equal footing.
Do you give as much as you receive, or do you feel that a friend, or perhaps more than one buddy, is constantly taking, taking, taking and not providing much in return?
Now, we can all be selfish from time to time, but if someone you care about is always concerned with themselves and never with those around them, you might want to reconsider why you’re devoting so much time and effort to this so-called friendship.
It’s not a friendship, it’s an agreement, when you think about it. True friendship is a mutually beneficial, two-way relationship that helps people to grow, be happy, and feel supported.
You’re meant to give back what you get, and if you don’t, your pals are selfish. That’s all there is to it.
It might be difficult for someone who is sensitive or loves friendship to look at someone they consider to be a friend and accept that they are acting in a way that does not reflect the standards of true friendship.
It can be difficult, and it’s true that breaking up with someone you consider a friend can be more difficult than a love split.
