Judd Apatow Vows to Include Wangs in Every Film He Makes

Good news for Judd Apatow fans who felt that the director-producer's Superbad didn't include enough penises in its closing-credits penis montage: Apatow, annoyed at a test audience's response to a wang in Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story, has solemnly vowed to include a penis in every film he makes. "America fears the penis," Apatow says, "and that's something I'm going to help them get over." The unit in question appears behind John C. Reilly's head in an orgy scene in Walk Hard, and supposedly more than twenty audience members walked out of a test screening in response.

Apatow kept the shot, though he noted that he "went with different angles to make sure there weren't too much testicles being shown." In response, the producers of HBO's Tell Me You Love Me announced that "America fears the nads," and vowed to include testicles in every episode of the drama's second season.
