SeaWorld has had a tough time since the release of Blackfish, the documentary that exposed the theme park’s mistreatment of captive killer whales.

Taking pity on the ailing brand, kindhearted Conan O’Brien has put together an ad to help resuscitate SeaWorld’s public image. It shows an orca whale roaming free and acting just like a wild orca whale should. Because that’s what SeaWorld wants, right?

Beautiful. Just beautiful.
