A video of a group of monkeys crossing a highway in Saudi Arabia went viral on social media over the weekend.

In the footage, the animals are seen running across a highway that tweeps identified as a road between Mecca and Madinah. 

While it remains unclear whether the video is recent, it's now causing a hilarious meltdown of the sorts on Twitter. 

It all started when this video went viral

People just can't even

Some are making jokes

"What are my brothers doing there?" 

Others are trying to find explanations

"Maybe they felt that rain is coming and decided to move to a safer place." 

People think this is a sign of a forthcoming earthquake

"Animals can sense earthquakes before humans." 

"Monkeys don't run for no reason"

"Ya sater"

The earthquake rumor is now circulating on WhatsApp

Authorities have since responded

"What is circulating on WhatsApp in regards to this monkey video being a sign of a forthcoming earthquake is false. The National Center of Earthquakes and Volcanoes, which is a part of Saudi Arabia's Geological Authority said that this type of animal movement does not signal any natural disaster." 

Not a first in the area

"This isn't something new in this area, it's always like this." 

It seems to be an annual event...
