The waddle – the collective noun for penguins – live at Odense Zoo in Denmark.
Uploaded to the zoo's Facebook page, the video shows their little footprints leading down a corridor.
Har de flugtglade pingvinger fra Madagascar inspireret ZOOs pingviner? ;)Posted by Odense Zoo on Monday, 9 November 2015
When the camera operator catches up with them, and the penguins realise their plan has been foiled, they start running off in the opposite direction.
The hilarious video has now racked up more than 85,000 views. People commenting on Facebook have likened the escape to that of the penguins in the Dreamworks film Madagascar.
One user quoted the film and posted: "Smile and wave boys, smile and wave!"
