Spingu the Vinyl Penguin is Taking Over Our Favorite Album Covers

Penguins are truly adorable creatures, and it turns out they love music as much as the rest of us… Or at least that seems to be the idea behind the viral Instagram page @antarctic_spins, which is photoshopping toy penguins into some of the most iconic album covers of all time.

This Instagram page has only been around for two years, but it’s becoming a true sensation, with 80,000 followers and counting. The idea behind the photos you’ll find here is pretty simple – taking iconic vinyl covers and replacing the artist with the adorable hero Spingu the Vinyl Penguin.

If you love music and Antarctic animals in equal measure, you’ll love this Instagram page with a passion because it’s the only one that brings them together. Spingu the Vinyl Penguin perfectly fits into the iconic album covers and makes them even more amazing and instantly adorable.

It’s easy to dismiss @antarctic_spins as a hilarious gimmick and nothing more, but it’s actually highly educational when it comes to music. The mastermind behind this Instagram page is obviously a huge music buff, and they’ll introduce you to many long-forgotten albums. Each post is followed by lyrics from one of the album’s songs, so you might discover some amazing new tracks alongside Spingu the Vinyl Penguin.
