Just when you think you’ve seen it all, a couple hires a penguin to be the ring bearer at their wedding! In a hilarious TikTok video, a user named Megan shared the most adorable footage of the bird at her friends’ marriage ceremony. Guests were taken completely by surprise as the animal waddled down the aisle! According to Megan, the couple had kept the penguin a secret from their loved ones during the wedding planning.

This video has gone viral online, leaving Megan with lots of questions to answer. However, it seems like she didn’t get the details on how her friends acquired a penguin for their wedding. One matter she did clear up, though, was that her video shows the bird on his way back from the altar. When one user pointed out that the little critter seemed “confused,” she explained that he’d already delivered the ring.

“This was on his way back up the aisle where he was left to freestyle,” she replied.

Many other commenters joked that the penguin had a built-in outfit for the wedding, since we often refer to these birds’ black-and-white feather patterns as “tuxedos.”

“He’s already dressed up,” one user wrote.

“Nice of him to wear a tux,” added another.
