AMONG ALL THE achievements in Louis Theroux’s career, perhaps the weirdest one is the fact that he’s become the centre of a cottage industry of memes dedicated to his work.

The @NoContextLouis account is famous on both Twitter and Facebook, but recently the Louis Theroux Bot has come on the scene to steal the limelight.

It produces spoof Louis documentary ideas that seem so real

On Wednesday, the bot came up with an idea that really sounded like Louis’s next project

And it went so viral that the man himself recorded an intro for it
