Alright, this one is going to sound a bit weird but Denmark is kicking off 2021 with a children’s TV show about a man and his outrageously large and misbehaving penis.
Yes, you read that correctly.
Introducing John Dillermand, a new animated series aimed at kids aged four to to eight years old, which explores the adventures of a well-intentioned chap who does his best to control his genitals.
As seen in the preview above, John’s record-breaking member has some serious versatility, transforming into a makeshift helicopter, helping him tame a lion and even capable of stealing an ice cream from a child.
In another scene, old mate John uses his prized genatalia to grab a gun and begins frantically waving it aroud in the air.
At this point, I have to reiiterate that this is an actual thing that is happening.
‘Dillermand’ literally translates to ‘penis-man’.
Here’s the premise for episode seven.
In the Zoo, John gets a little unlucky to steal an ice cream, with the diller. It will be the start of a worse chaos with a lion at large. And John must both fight with the lion and later measure himself with the serpent. When the diller gets him in trouble, he has to clean up and save the situation, because that’s how John Dillermand is.
As you no doubt would have guessed, not everyone is loving Denmark’s controversial new premise, with outraged parents questioning its place on a children’s TV network.
However, it’s important to note there is nothing sexual about the John Dillermand’s character, says clinical psychologist Erla Heinesen Højsted.
“The show depicts a man who is impulsive and not always in control, who makes mistakes – like kids do, but crucially, Dillermand always makes it right,” she told The Guardian.
“He takes responsibility for his actions. When a woman in the show tells him that he should keep his penis in his pants, for instance, he listens. Which is nice. He is accountable.”
There are currently nine five-minute episodes available online.
Whatever your take on the show, it’s safe to assume we won’t be seeing this one pop up on the kids channel in Australia anytime soon.
