We’re betting that your pranks on your friends are the garden variety type seen on The Office, but oddly, the creators of the hit British show have gone way beyond that level of prank with their series An Idiot Abroad. Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant worked a bit of mischief on their uncultured friend Karl Pilkington by forcing him to visit the seven wonders of the world. If you visit these places with “poor” Pilkington by checking-in to the show through our apps or our website, you can collect stickers for the show and his travels.
Billed by Science Channel as “an elaborate joke turned social experiment,” An Idiot Abroad follows Pilkington as Gervais and Merchant try to force him out of his comfort zone and into a broader world. His travels take him across continents and countries, but will his experiences change him?
An Idiot Abroad premieres tomorrow at 10/9c, with a special preview at 9:30/8:30c. Be sure to tune in to the show every Saturday at 10/9c and check-in with GetGlue through our apps or our website. Follow @GetGlue on Twitter for all the latest news.
