YouTube star Stuart Edge released the sequel to last year's "Mistletoe Kissing Prank" video, and he might have outdone himself. At least this time he didn't get slapped on camera.
In "Snowing Mistletoe Kissing Prank," Edge teams with Breea Guttery and Christian Vera. The trio takes turns surveying students on the campus of Arizona State University about Christmas. They ask two main questions: "Do you kiss under the mistletoe?" and "Do you kiss in the snow?" Keep in mind, it never snows in Tempe, Arizona.
That fact only accentuates the reactions when Edge's crew uses a snow machine to create a mini winter wonderland. The prank is topped off by mistletoe on a string dropping down above the people on camera.
The initial response from those who are pranked is hilarious, but then as you watch, you become curious about whether they'll kiss one of the three hosts. Some go for a quick peck on the lips. Others decide to savor the moment a little longer.
The video has already accumulated over 300,000 YouTube views. Edge's initial holiday prank racked up 24 million. That piece and his channel's subsequent popularity landed the comedian on "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon" and "Extra." He uploads new videos every week.
Say what you want about Edge, but the one thing you can't characterize him as is a mysophobe.
