When nerds took revenge back in the mid-'80s, we should have figured there'd be a counter-attack. But who knew it would be from our favorite hive-minded insects?

A new strain known as "crazy ants" are attracted to electronics, and before getting fried by the object of their desire, tend to send a signal to their homies. Before too long, your computer is ruined by being full of dead ants. And unless you're singing the Pink Panther theme, a dead ant is not as cool as you'd think it would be.

On the plus side, they're displacing the stingier fire ants. On the downside, your computer may be full of them right now.

Check the video after the jump to protect yourself. But if it doesn't load immediately...


...don't get antsy.
