The video shows a big number of ants that repeatedly are trying to climb up to the top, and at every attempt they slide to the bottom, not changing the position and not trying to find another way. Actually the scene is not set and the video has documentary character and represent the natural behavior of insects in non natural environment. A written sentence at the beginning explains the reason for their unpleasant position “...impasse they find themselves, in search for existence (food), seduced by my organic cosmetics placed by the bath tub.”
But fortunately (or unfortunately), unlike the ants we have a conscious mind, and unlike Sisyphus we have free will, what is better starting position than theirs in finding the “exit”.
