There is no Next Episode of World of Weird planned.
In this first episode, Joel travels to Australia's Gold Coast, to meet Pricasso: the world's only artist to paint with his penis; and Joel has a go himself. In Texas, Ayo meets members of America's vampire community, including self-styled vampire king Michael, and his 'black swan' Blut, who lets him drink her blood. Also in America, there's Chico, Jackie and Jeff's pet capybara; how good a house pet is the world's largest rodent? And Vicky goes to Tokyo to be a zentai. There are more than 3000 zentai in Tokyo, who dress in full body lycra and frolic about. And it takes a saucy turn.
A team of intrepid reporters present outlandish, extraordinary and unbelievable people, situations and phenomena from around the world. Joel Dommett visits Tokyo to work for a crying agency. In Japan, emotion is not often shown in public, but this agency sends good-looking guys to businesses so that the employees can all cry together, and can bond as a result. The guys working for the agency all have other jobs, and consider this a good deed, so Joel auditions, joins up, and goes to a business to help make the female employees cry together and to dab the tears from their faces with a clean hanky. In Glasgow, Meryl Fernandes investigates sploshing: a fetish for having food and gunk splashed all over you.
