This Louis Theroux Christmas Jumper Is Every Fan’s Dream Present
Ah mate, this Louis Theroux jumper just makes me wanna skip Halloween, Bonfire night and whatever else goes on in the meaningless months before December.
The was a surge in Theroux-emblazoned shirts and jumpers this year, so it makes sense that we have a special Christmas release.
It has it all: snowflakes, reindeers, Santa hats…
Take a look here:
Louis himself shared the jumper on his own Twitter, writing: ‘Please place orders early as my Mum is struggling to keep up with demand.’
While doing a live Q&A on Twitter someone asked the fearless documentary-maker if there was one subject that due to ‘fear or otherwise’ he wouldn’t go near.
Louis responded saying the one topic he’d avoid would be coverage of the so-called Islamic State.
I would have been very curious to see what was going on in the Islamic State. I find religious extremism really bizarre, but also fascinating.
But, I think it was mainly fear that prevented me going over there. I’ve seen too much about journalists being taken hostage and being beheaded, so I steered clear of that one.
Louis Theroux has covered all walks of obscure and contentious forms of lifestyle – from the lives of meth addicts and backyard wrestling performers all the way to Neo-Nazi’s, gangsters and the infamous god-fearing-LGBTQ-hating Westbury Baptist Church. But for him to say that even he wouldn’t go near the terrorist group Daesh (ISIS) says a lot.
Louis Theroux recently returned to our screens with three documentaries in the series Dark States.
In the first episode, Heroin Town, the popular broadcaster and documentary maker examines America’s love affair with prescription painkillers.
Following a crackdown on over-prescription, two million Americans who are addicted to high-strength painkillers are having to go elsewhere to satisfy their dependency.
Many have chosen to turn to a stronger and cheaper drug which is also easier to get hold of: heroin.
For the first time in America in two decades, life expectancy is declining and many believe this is due to more and more people becoming addicted to heroin.
The drug now claims more lives in America than either gun crime or car accidents and police admit the arrests they make just aren’t having an impact.
Episode two, Heroin Town, sees Louis travel to Huntington in West Virginia to visit an Appalachian community which is being devastated by widespread heroin use.
In the final episode, Sex Trafficking Houston, Louis takes an in-depth look into what is considered to be one of the largest hubs for human trafficking in North America.
Interviewing women working in the city’s sex industry, Louis examines the relationship they have with pimps.
