Useless trivia: In 1993, David Hasselhoff--Yes, Mr. Baywatch-- recorded a ditty called the Pingu Dance, excerpt:

OK everybody, this is the Pingu prance
All everybody have to do the Pingu dance
My name is Pingu, come on dance to the beat
It's easy if you try just watch my feet
It's all, be happy and have some fun
Let's come to ten and start with one
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10, let's go to 11
Stomp your feet and turn around
Reach for the sky, now touch the ground

Pi, pi, pi, pin
Pi, pi, pi, pin
Do the Pingu
Do the Pingu
