The penguin couple's video generated a lot of awe and positivity among the viewers on multiple social media platforms. The penguins are being considered a benchmark in couple goals as their movements are symbolic of love and companionship that most of romantics envision. 



Besides the heart-melting emotion that the video inspires, it also raised a lot of questions as people didn't expect penguins to be in Africa. Attention to the African penguin breed was paid a little later, which disillusioned the twitter populous of the penguins being limited to the Arctic.
