Aside from being animals, Pitbull and the Penguins of Madagascar don't have a lot of obvious similarities, but after the recording artist told MTV the story of how his song "Celebrate" came about, we're starting to see the resemblance.
"What happened was we had a meeting with DreamWorks," Pitbull said. "They showed us a bunch of projects, and then I see this one. I said, 'We definitely relate to the penguins.' The guys are all around the world, looking for ways to solve situations and problems. They don't know how to do it, but they do it. It sounds like what we do musically."
You know, that actually makes sense.
"Penguins of Madagascar" opens in theaters on November 26.
