Dogs Show Their Skills in an Unusual Contest

You've seen the Grammys, the Tonys and the Emmys, but we bet you've never seen anything like the Humpy Awards.

As you'll see in the video below, the aptly named competition celebrates canines' natural urge to... well, you know. Competitors are judged in highly scientific and artistic categories, including speed, style, stamina, mount and dismount.

Unfortunately, this astonishing event won't be coming to a town near you. It's a faux competition created as a viral video marketing stunt for a new unscripted show called Small Town Security. The series, which follows a private security company located in rural Georgia, comes from the executive producers of This American Life and Mob Wives. It premieres Sunday, July 15 on AMC.
