[[caption-width-right:287:[[CaptainObvious Definitely]] [[BritainIsOnlyLondon Welsh]].]]

Welshy is a reviewer on Website/YouTube and Website/ThatGuyWithTheGlasses, as well as a member of the Channel Awesome Wiki staff. He can be found [[http://www.youtube.com/user/NostalgiaAVGNfan here]], [[http://www.youtube.com/channel/UC1XFMjd48k-Xx0AsO_8WF1g here]] and [[http://thatguywiththeglasses.com/videolinks/teamt/welshy here]]. Always accompanied by a photo of Creator/AnneHathaway, he does reviews with a focus on horror, like his ''Franchise/{{Scream}}'' and ''Film/{{Saw}}'' retrospectives, multiple Top 10 lists (often concerning ''Series/DoctorWho'') and two series called [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Why I Like...]] and [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin My Problem With...]], where he (quickly) goes into depth about something he does or does not like. Pretty straightforward really.

He is also the question giver on SadPandaQAndA and has something of a drinking problem.

[[http://welshyca.tumblr.com/post/50659290387/i-take-my-stand Annouced on 17th May 2013 that he was leaving Channel Awesome and video making in general for personal reasons]].
----
!!Tropes:
* AbortedArc: Computer problems caused the cancellation of his "James Bond Month."
** His retiring from video making meant that his "Saw" and "Halloween" Retrospectives went the same way.
* BaitAndSwitchCredits: If you left during the credits of Film/TheLovedOnes, you don't get to see the film's ending, or Welshy's hilarious TheMerch offer.
* BitingTheHandHumor: Often starts a video by voicing an opinion unpopular on TGWTG in an attempt to get his content barred.
* BritainIsOnlyLondon: Averted; [[CaptainObvious Welshy is Welsh]].
* TheCameo:
** WebVideo/TheCinemaSnob does one in Welshy's review of ''Film/RedEye''.
** In his ''Film/CasinoRoyale'' review, [[Characters/TheNostalgiaChick Elisa]] appears as [[Webvideo/VampireReviews the Maven of the Eventide]].
** Welshy pretends to be the guy who rules over Website/ThatGuyWithTheGlasses in DiamandaHagan's review of ''The Dragon Lives Again''.
*** [[KarmaHoudini He got away with it]] without Wales being nuked by Hagan... [[FridgeBrilliance so are you sure he isn't?]]
* CompanionCube: His toy monkey, a bottle of Jack Daniels, and his picture of Anne Hathaway.
* {{Crossover}}:
** He does one with [[WebVideo/SadPandaQAndA Sad Panda]], MikeJ, [[WebVideo/DragonBallAbridged Masako X]] and [[WebVideo/BadMovieBeatdown Film Brain]] in ''WebVideo/ForgetAboutIt: Film/MontyPythonAndTheHolyGrail''.
** And another one with [[WebVideo/BadMovieBeatdown Film Brain]] on ''Film/TheTexasChainsawMassacreTheBeginning''.
** A review of ''Bloody Mallory'' with [[WebVideo/SadPandaQAndA Sad Panda]], WebVideo/{{Phelous}}, Creator/ChaosD1, WebVideo/ObscurusLupa, [[WebVideo/BadMovieBeatdown Film Brain]], Andrew Dickman, and Creator/CriticalMarine.
** Did a [[http://blip.tv/MrTARDIS/doctor-who-review-w-welshy-boom-town-2005-5762887 crossover]] outside TGWTG with WebVideo/MrTARDISReviews on the ''Series/DoctorWho'' episode [[Recap/DoctorWhoS27E11BoomTown "Boom Town"]] (with WebVideo/{{Sad Panda|QAndA}} appearing in a cameo).
** Did yet another one with [[WebVideo/BadMovieBeatdown Film Brain]] on ''Film/TexasChainsaw3D''
* ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin: He's [[UsefulNotes/{{Wales}} Welsh]]. Shock! Also the titles of his segments.
* FreezeFrameBonus: Happens quite alot in his videos, most notably one of WebVideo/{{Phelous}}, when Welshy describes a voice in his head told him to go through reviewing "Killjoy 2".
* INeedAFreakingDrink: He uses every imaginable opportunity to drink booze.
* MotorMouth: to the point where he is occasionally mistaken for ''WebAnimation/ZeroPunctuation''[='=]s Yahtzee.
* OfCorsetsSexy: He lost a bet with [[Characters/TheNostalgiaChick Elisa Hansen]] and had to wear a corset to Magfest. Opinions on how sexy [[http://a1.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-ash4/397205_10150511343093610_787413609_8790805_418994891_n.jpg this]] is will vary.
* PromotedFanBoy: He once had a Website/YouTube account under the name of [=NostalgiaAVGNfan=] where he collected AVGN and NC reviews. Channel Awesome then asked him to do title sequences for several of their shows, and eventually gave him his own spot as a producer.
* RunningGag: At first, a fake gag order that prevented him from saying Busy Street. Later on, it evolved into mocking the blog's founder.
--> '''THAT'S ME! THAT'S ME! THAT'S ME!'''
** Making a [[RippedFromTheHeadlines topical joke]] and then having a picture of whatever he joked about flash up with "Topical Joke of the Day" superimposed over it while a digitally pitched-up voice says "TOPICAL!"
** [[{{Squee}} Joyfully]] shouting "BILLY!" whenever the puppet in question shows up during his ''{{Film/Saw}}'' retrospective.
*** He did try to not use it in the 6th part of it (citing this page as a reason why not), but gave in and let a newer version of the gag happen with a flashing pixel icon of him going from normal Welshy to himself when he dressed up as Billy.
*** That flashing icon featured art from pixel artist [[http://jc013.deviantart.com/gallery/38552637 James Carlson]], who happened to have also done the art in the ColdOpening of [[WebVideo/TheBlockbusterBuster Blockbuster Buster's]] Film/TheSmurfs review.
* SeriesHiatus: Mat took a [[https://twitter.com/#!/Welshy_Who/status/142587901895639040 three month break]] [[https://twitter.com/#!/Welshy_Who/status/142588092249944064 due to a big hit of depression]].
* StupidSexyFlanders: Reacted [[DistractedByTheSexy just the same]] to Creator/CillianMurphy's eyes as he did to Creator/RachelMcAdams's smile. Then resorted to his Creator/AnneHathaway picture to reassure himself.
* TheStinger: Also happens a lot at the end of his videos, always a quick spoof of the Bad Robot VanityPlate of a random shape running by and appearing in full view, showing what it is with a high pitch voice saying what it is before a sound clip of that random thing plays. What the shape is either has something to do with the review, something to do with Channel Awesome or just something completely random.
* {{Troll}}: Went on a ''four hour'' long {{twitter}} fight with various members of the Busy Street site, leading him to be blocked by its members. When Busy Street's founder tried and failed to write an article on the TGWTG Wiki, Welshy wrote an [[http://thatguywiththeglasses.wikia.com/wiki/Running_Gag Wiki article heavily mocking the guy.]]
** Humbling WebVideo/DiamandaHagan by pretending to be the overlord of thatguywiththeglasses.com, making her say humiliating things and straight up insulting her. Just for a laugh.
** Takes many potshots at a TGWTG user who attacked Welshy for a line in his ''[[Franchise/{{Scream}} Scream 4]]'' (he thought Welshy was attacking the ''[[Franchise/StarWars Star Wars]] Prequels'', when Welshy was merely comparing his excitement of ''Scream 4'' coming out to when ''Film/ThePhantomMenace'' was coming out), to the extent of [[NeverLiveItDown showing]] an [[OldShame embarassing video]] (with a CensorBox over his eyes) of him saying "[[ManipulativeEditing I had sex]] [[BestialityIsDepraved with my cat]]". These may become DudeNotFunny [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgment depending on your opinion of the user and his actions]].
