Watch Now: Controversial Sam Pepper Bestfriend Murder Prank

Former UK Big Brother contestant and YouTube celebrity Sam Pepper shot to fame after uploading several prank videos, with a couple having been deemed so offensive that YouTube had to take them down. An example of said video was when Sam Pepper used groped five unsuspecting women on the street while asking for directions. Understandably, none of the women took kindly to it, and neither did thousands of netizens.

YouTube celebrities and ‘ordinary’ netizens alike took to the net to voice their outrage over the video, so much so, YouTube had to take down the video. Months later, an 18-year-old girl came forward saying that the YouTube star had raped her – her admission prompted several other alleged victims to come forward, as well. Be that as it may, you’d think Sam Pepper would lie low and stay out of the spotlight for a while, right?

Of course not. He wouldn’t be Sam Pepper if he weren’t in or causing some sort of trouble. Well, the latest ruckus he’s caused is due to his latest prank called, “Killing Best Friend Prank.” The title says it all. The video starts off Sam Pepper laying down the video’s context and informing viewers that Colby Brook is involved in the prank while Sam Golbach is “completely unaware.” In the video, you see YouTubers and best friends of five years Sam and Colby driving in a dark alley before the car their riding in “suddenly breaks down.”

Colby then steps out to get a flash light and to check on the car when they are suddenly hijacked by a man wearing a balaclava. Armed with a “gun,” the assailant ties the two and bring them to the roof top of an undisclosed location. We then see a terrified Sam trying to comfort Colby who is on his knees with a bag over his head. Moments later, the gun man points the gun at Colby’s head and “pulls the trigger.”

Sam, who is tied to a chair, then begins screaming and sobbing uncontrollably until Colby gets up and reveals that he’s okay. Still visibly shaken and upset, Colby continues to comfort his best friend and explains that Sam was part of an elaborate prank. Again, thousands have taken to the internet to voice their disgust, however, Sam has apparently posted a tweet saying that he was not mad about the prank and that it had, in fact, made his friendship with Colby stronger. This may lead to one wondering if this whole thing is an elaborate hoax and if Sam is actually in on it, too.
