If you were watching the finale of The People v. O.J. Simpson tonight (which, of course you were, because it's currently the best show on TV), you caught a brilliant promo spot for Donald Glover's highly-anticipated 10-episode FX series Atlanta.

In the blink-and-you-missed-it spot (which aired immediately after the "Not Guilty" verdict was read on the show), Donald and his homies are sitting in front of the television. One of his boys asks, "So that's it? He just got off?" Donald, confused, tells his boy "that's what happened." It's a brilliant take on a show that Glover desired to create as "Twin Peaks for rappers."

At the 2016 Television Critics Association Convention, it was said that Atlanta will debut on FX sometime this summer. That's a few months from now...which means we could be in for a LOT of these genius, quick promos. In the mean time, we're just hoping that we get a higher-quality look at this TV spot. Stay tuned.
