Flying Penguins?

The idea of penguins flying is preposterous. Their wings are far too small to generate the lift necessary to lift their heavy bodies. Yesterday, the BBC promoted a video purporting to show penguins flying from the Antarctic to the tropics. I think it executes the trick quite well.

Including Terry Jones as a narrator may be a tip-off as to the video's intent.
