A group of penguins’ valiant escape to freedom fizzled thanks to some old-fashioned human innovations.
The penguins managed to get all the way to a hallway meant for zoo staffers and tried to push it even further. However, two things went wrong: they didn’t cover their tracks, and they were discovered, leading them to abort the operation.
“Perhaps our penguins [have] seen The Penguins of Madagascar too much?” a translated video description read.
Based on their failure, they evidently haven’t seen it enough.
