It’s been reported (though unconfirmed) that most of the stunt ants were paid nothing but scraps and several of the ants were harmed in the production of this movie. At least two stunt ants are seen to be squished by Dwayne Johnson’s amble jaw in this scene.[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gAWrAQp7pWQ&w=640&h=360]
See if you can say this really fast:
