A HILARIOUS video of a smartly-dressed comedian welcoming unsuspecting shoppers at Brierley Hill's Poundland has gone viral.

Milo McCabe, who goes under the pseudonym Troy Hawke set up the #GreetersGuild on social media showing him welcoming people to venues such as supermarkets and pubs across the country.

In a video posted on Monday August 1 Milo headed to the Moor Centre Brierley Hill to take his post outside Poundland.

Dressed in his fetching signature long purple jacket with a black belt tie and adopting a posh accent the video shows his interactions with Brierley Hill's down-to-earth shoppers.

The video has now been viewed one million times on twitter 206,000 times on Tiktok.



To one customer laden with goods he said: "You look like you've got a party coming up"

She replied: "No - pots to put me plants in."

One chatty shopper says: "He's from Cyprus, my family's from Greece but I was born in South Yorkshire." to which Milo replies "You are a wonderful tapestry, aren't you."

Another refuses the offer of a hug saying "with this covid I aint' sure of anything."

Welcoming one shopper he states: "We are wonderful value and easy maths."

Milo had been candidly filming the interactions for his popular Tiktok channel @Troy_Hawke which has over 520k followers.
