A film crew was shooting a documentary about the penguins of South Georgia when a group of elephant seals tried to steal the spotlight and knocked down the cameraman’s tent, a humorous video uploaded to YouTube by Atlantic Productions on Nov. 25 suggests. Unfortunately we don’t see the seals actually do the damage; we just see a cluster of them flopping on top of a mangled orange tent. Some look like they’re backing away in shame, while others — with their mouths gaping open  — look like they are laughing at the filmmakers.

Adventures of the Penguin King, narrated by Tim Allen, is due out in theaters December 6.
