how do they animate this?

I am trying to animate a bunch of butterflies like they do on this video.
When the girls fart the butterflies, they have this natural looking movement, that I dont know how to achieve...
do they use expressions for this?
I know how to brake down and animate a butterfly, but here there are so many of them and with a natural looking movement...I was thinking about linking a butterfly to a particle (using particular)...I dont know if this can be done...

i think Particular is your best bet to recreate the effect.
You need to have your butterfly animation within a separate comp on your timeline. In particular you need to pick your particle type as a Sprite, then open the Texture and set the layer to the butterfly comp, time sampling to random loop.
As for the actual initial wind force - thats up to you to achieve, but i would certainly try experimenting with the air resistance and wind in the physics options.
