He's the interweb's next big think according to Riz Latief.
The people I see posting it up on Facebook and thinking it's the BEST THING EVER are the sort of lads who it's parodying, though.
'The show follows the travel adventures of title character Giles Wemmbley-Hogg ("Two Ms, two Gs"), a nice but somewhat dim upper-middle class ex-public school boy (Charterhouse School) played by co-writer Brigstocke. Giles is on a gap year before university, and he records his (mis)adventures with his portable digital recorder, in places such as Bolivia, India, and Egypt. Throughout the series he does somehow graduate, albeit with a 2:2 in Canadian Studies. Later episodes have followed Giles in his search for a job and his engagement to the fearsome Arabella (fondly known as Belly-Bells).
Themes in this comedy are Giles's naïveté, and small-mindedness, with his frequent (and usually inappropriate) comparisons with life back in his native Budleigh Salterton. In Giles' first broadcast incarnation, as a recurring character performed by Brigstocke on satirical radio show The Now Show, he is offensively boorish and unlikeable. However, in Giles Wemmbley-Hogg Goes Off he is a sympathetic fool and clearly does not mean any harm.' - WIKI
