Actually the little flash animation that pertains to us in particular 
is "Meditation." Where one penguin shows his fellow penguin seekers 
of inner peace the nirvana that is Linux on a ThinkPad. They've got 
to be ThinkPads...it's IBM, right?

You gotta love IBM, man...they are the best evangelists Linux has 
ever had. They're committed...and they've got tons of money to throw 
at animators to do cute little flash animations.

However, if that 3D animated penguin doing the James Brown moves was 
animated in, say, Blender, and they said so, it would have been even 
cooler. Maybe next time they should encourage people to use Free/Open 
Source Software tools to make projects like these.
