The Making of a Penguin Commercial

Lights, Camera, Action! Check out how a little “Hollywood” magic allowed a little penguin to roam around the Tennessee Aquarium. You’ll be amazed how much hard work went into creating the Aquarium’s latest commercial. View the behind the scenes footage of a penguin round-up in this gentoo “spaghetti western”.

Although the commercial looks like a penguin ‘hombre’ is walking through the Aquarium and checking out the various exhibits as the new guy in town, he never actually left his exhibit. Sub-Antarctic penguins like gentoos and macaronis must stay in their climate controlled environment, so a special technology was used to give the illusion our black and white buckaroo was wandering around both the River Journey and Ocean Journey buildings.

Watch the commercial.
