Humans are not the only species that enjoy some artificial sweetness.
Honey bees, too, will do anything to get their little suckers on a fizzy drink.
In a viral video first shared on Twitter, two little bees worked together to twist off the cap on a Fanta Orange bottle.
An astounded onlooker managed to capture the moment that they used their front legs to slowly dislodge the cap from the bottle.
The original tweet has since been deleted, reports The Independent, but has now been uploaded on YouTube.

Twitter user Buitengebiden, who shared and deleted the original video that went viral, also shared this:

I’d be happy to give them a small sip of my drink, anytime.
