Who Drew The D**ks? Netflix’s American Vandal Trailer
“Who drew the dicks?” That’s the pertinent question in Netflix’ new series, American Vandal, which explores the aftermath of a costly high school prank that left twenty-seven faculty cars vandalised with phallic images. Sound too crazy to be true? That’s because it’s completely made up.
Yes, Netflix’ American Vandal may seem like a documentary from the trailer alone, but sadly it is a satire. The interesting part about the new 8-part series is that it’s satirising some of the streaming service’s most popular documentary productions – namely Making a Murderer and The Keepers.
Made by co-creators Tony Yacenda (Pillow Talking) and Dan Perrault (Honest Trailers), American Vandal will be split into eight half-hour episodes and over the course of the season, aspiring sophomore documentarian Peter Maldanaldo (Tyler Alvarez) investigates the controversial and potentially unjust expulsion of troubled senior (and known dick-illustrator) Dylan Maxwell (Jimmy Tatro).
Dylan has always pleaded his innocence, and the clue to the case may just lay in the ball hairs, with Dylan’s dick drawings not matching the ones that appear on the graffiti. As one interviewee puts it in the trailer, “This isn’t about dicks. This is about the justice system!” Quite honestly, it looks hilarious. We just hope they don’t run out of dick jokes by Episode 1.
Co-starring Griffin Gluck, Camille Hyde, Eduardo Franco, and Lukas Gage, the series is produced for Netflix by CBS Television Studios, Funny or Die, and 3Arts, and launches globally on Netflix on Friday 15th September. Check out the full trailer below.
