The author of the video commented:

Look at the bridge they have built... Apparently, whilst ants should be able to walk upside down,they are not very comfortable with it during an attack,hence,they made this huge "U" formation.

Scientists say that this phenomenon can be easily explained. When an ant sees a precipice, it instinctively stops. Then, his brothers are pulled up. When one ant climbs on the back of another, the bottom one stops. On average, one ant can withstand three individuals. The remaining ants, aimlessly wandering around the bodies of their comrades, find an unoccupied place and get into the whole structure to create the stronger support.

By the way, scientists claim that the study of ants helps to develop the understanding of human nature much faster. People and these insects actually have a lot in common. For example, they actively use the principle of the division of labor, as we humans do.
