Update: Sep. 23, 11 a.m.

Pepper has released two new videos explaining his intentions with the prank, which he describes as a “social experiment” he conducted with willing participants who were completely knowledgable about the content of the video. The first of the new videos has already been removed from YouTube for violating its Terms of Service. The video showed the same scenario as the original video, but with a woman pinching men’s backsides.

Watch the second of the new videos, containing Pepper’s reveal about his “social experiment”.

Pepper does not use this video to address other videos of his that have come under fire, such as one in which he seemingly handcuffs unsuspecting women to him and says it means they are now dating.
