Watch: Why does an iPhone ringtone make ants run in a circle?
A curious video has been doing the rounds of internet which shows a group of ants racing in circles around an iPhone as it rings. The video which has gone viral has generated a lot of interest and sparked a host of theories as to what could have caused the bizarre phenomenon.
Initially, in the video the ants are seen walking normally in different directions. But, when the iPhone begins to ring and vibrate, they mysteriously form a ring around the phone, racing around it in almost perfect circles.
According to ViralVideoLab, who uploaded the video to YouTube last week, the ant's weird behaviour is caused by an "electromagnetic wave" from the incoming call.
Others have also suggested that the strange behaviour could simply be because the video is a fake.
