Generally speaking, Facebook groups exist
so people who share interests can connect.
That, apparently, includes those
who take pleasure in pretending
to be ants in an ant colony.
On April 23, 18-year-old video creator
Tyler Sincavage took to TikTok to share
his thoughts on the unusual group.
“So over quarantine, I joined this group on Facebook: ‘A group where we all pretend to
be an ant in an ant colony,'” Sincavage says.
“I didn’t really know what to expect even though there’s 1.1 million people in this group”.
Sincavage explains how the group is a “cult” that has “a queen” that members “all hail”.
He then shows a sample post where one
member posted a rock with the caption
“AM STUCK UNDER THE ROCK SEND HELP”.
“Whenever you find a post from
another ant, you’re supposed to send
help or do something in return,” he says.
“So, in return, we all commented
‘LIFT’ to lift the rock from this ant”.
The teenager’s clip immediately went
viral on the social media platform.
where it has received over 1.3 million views
and more than 4,000 comments
