About American Vandal

American Vandal isn’t your average crime documentary series. The Netflix mockumentary follows the mysterious case of one high school vandal who decides to spray paint obscene images on 27 faculty cars in the school’s parking lot. Featuring YouTube star Jimmy Tatro as the main suspect, the show’s teenage characters use Snapchat, Instagram, Twitch, and other social media platforms to help piece together the absurdly crude crime. The show’s hilarious take on both high-school hijinks and true-crime documentaries helped it get 97% on Rotten Tomatoes, with fans also sharing their theories and raves about the show with the Twitter hashtag #DicksEverywhere.
