Turns out making a relentlessly silly (but smart!) parody powered by penis jokes is way to win the classiest TV award in 2018.
American Vandal, Netflix's true crime parody that dares to ask the question "who drew the dicks?" is one of nine TV recipients for the prestigious Peabody media award, Variety reports.
The full list of Peabody entertainment winners for 2017 includes A Series of Unfortunate Events (in the Children and Youth category), Better Call Saul, the stand-up special Hasan Minhaj: Homecoming King, Insecure, Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, Saturday Night Live for its political satire, The Handmaid's Tale and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. All good things, but none of them have as many dongs as American Vandal.
