This Weird Detail In “Antz” Will Make You Say “WAIT, WHAT?”

Apologies in advANTZ

OK, so it goes without saying that Antz is a classic and timeless film. I'm also willing to say it's probably the best animated film about bugs.

No diss to A Bug's Life, but Disney knows what it is.

Now, if you're like me there's a scene in particular embedded in your head...

...and that scene is when Z and Princess Bala arrive at what they think is Insectopia.

Obviously a picnic.

They then meet the super bougie couple of wasps, Chip and Muffy...

...and then (spoiler alert) Muffy fucking DIES.

Damn, that sucks.

Damn, that sucks.

I eventually got over that, but there's one thing in this scene that has plagued me for 18 years!!

Dreamworks

And it's the BIG ASS UNNECESSARY step this person at the picnic takes.

Dreamworks

What?

Now, before you say "Go home, you're drunk," allow me to waste a little more of your valuable time with this analysis.

Dreamworks

OK, so check out this super accurate drawing of the picnic I did. Then, take note of the placement of the left foot (LF) and right foot (RF), because WTF?!

Maybe Shaq made a cameo we didn't know about.

Maybe Shaq made a cameo we didn't know about.

That is one, very large, inhuman step.

Dreamworks

I fear for those ankles.

Now, I know what you're thinking, (other than I have too much time on my hands) "What if the tablecloth was smaller?"

Doesn't fit.

Doesn't fit.

Now if you're still thinking, "That cloth is too small and it's probably somewhere in between those two sizes." Quit thinking that.

Warner Bros.

Because I'd like to believe that Shaq was having a picnic.

Dreamworks

Now, in conclusion, you gotta admit that was a pretty uncomfortable looking step to take right?
