A YouTube prankster who shocked the internet when he passionately kissed his sister on camera in order to earn viral fame has returned with another horrifying and desperate video that sees him kissing his mother.
Chris Monroe, who is based in California and is known as PrankInvasion online, shared a video on his YouTube channel on May 4 entitled ‘Kissing My Actual Mom Prank’ – a follow up to his ‘Kissing My Actual Sister’ clip which he debuted on March 22.
In the first few minutes of the clip, the controversial internet star secretly films his mother in the family home, recording her covertly as she does the dishes in the kitchen, while promising viewers he is ‘going to top’ his last viral hit.
Bizarre! Chris Monroe, who is based in California and known online as PrankInvasion, shared a video of himself puckering up to his own mother on Saturday, May 4
Strange: The awkward clip sees Chris begging his mom to take part in the video, insisting that it will ‘go viral’, before she eventually agreed

After flashing up several pictures of press coverage he received after sharing his sister kiss clip, Chris then proceeds to say: ‘I am going to kiss my mom.
‘It feels so weird to say that but it’s going down.’
He adds to his followers that he is rushing the filming of the clip because his mother has ‘an emergency’ that is requiring her to go out of town – and rather than wait to share the potential viral video, he was keen to share it as soon as possible.
Eager: At the beginning of the video, Chris said: ‘I’m going to kiss my mom. It feels so weird to say that, but it’s going down’
‘We are going to challenge my mom to a quick game for a quick kiss,’ he concludes, while groaning in apparent horror over what he is about to do.
Before actually getting started with the prank however, Chris seizes the opportunity to promote a shoe brand that is sponsoring the video, a footwear label that gives men a subtle boost in height.
After the less than subtle ad, the prankster then starts to film his mother, telling the camera, ‘My mom is literally right there and this is even more nerve-wracking than my sister.
‘My mom is doing dishes, she’s always doing something. But I am going to ask her to kiss me. Actually I don’t even know if I’m going to do it. I am just… I am nervous.’
Chris follows his mother to her office, explaining that he is going to wait until she is ‘done with the computer, and maybe pop the question’.
‘I am trying to catch her at a time when she is doing nothing,’ he adds. ‘Because when I interrupt her and she’s busy, she gets so mad and she’s not going to want to do this for me.
Unnatural: At one point, while his mother prepared to let him kiss her, Chris said he couldn’t even look at her, as they both giggled awkwardly
Yikes! Chris’ mother puckered her lips and squinted her eyes as she and the prankster leaned toward each other
Weird! Chris then kisses leaned in and planted a kiss on his mother’s lips, which he held for a short moment before pulling away from her
‘You can hear in my voice I’m so nervous because I am literally about to ask my mom to play a quick game for a quick kiss.’
Finally, after several minutes of build-up, Chris confronts his mother, approaching her with his camera in hand and saying, ‘Mom, the video with Kaitlyn went crazy, it went viral, and I need you to do the quick game for a kiss with me.’
Unsurprisingly, his mother reacts with horror, telling her son, ‘No Christopher, I don’t want to do that!’
The YouTuber is undeterred by her protest however, saying: ‘It will go so viral!’ as she simply moans, ‘No!’ in the background.
At this point, the video cuts to a black screen which features the words: ‘My mom would not agree to do this… So I had to cut the camera and literally BEG her to do it!’
A few seconds later, Chris reappears in front of the camera, this time joined by his mother as the pair sit on a bed.
Chris tells the camera: ‘I finally convinced my mom. That conversation was two hours, I’m not going to lie. [I] convinced her to come up here and play a quick game for a kiss.’
‘This is even worse than kissing Katilyn guys. I was sweating last time. I don’t know if you can see, I’m sweating now I’m so nervous,’ he adds.
Chris says he ‘can’t even look’ at his mother at this point, as the pair giggle awkwardly. ‘Alright, here we go,’ Chris adds.
Aftermath: After the pair shared a kiss, Chris began laughing and shouting ‘oh my god’ as he thought about what he and his mother had just done
Odd: Chris asked his mother what it felt like to kiss her son, and she said: ‘I feel like you’re two years old’
Crazy: He concluded the video, which has received 600,000 views so far, saying he was going to go and wash his mouth out
Strange: Before filming the kiss, Chris had secretly filmed his mother in the family home as she went from the kitchen (L) to her bathroom (R)
Before going in for the kiss with his mother, Chris explains that the video is ‘spur of the moment’, as he says he is filming on his iPhone rather than using a camera.
The pair then play rock, paper, scissors to decide if Chris will win and get a kiss from his mom. He loses the first round, before insisting they ‘try again’. This time, Chris wins the game rock to scissors, meaning he will get to kiss his mother.
He says: ‘Alright, how are we going to angle this?’ before moving his dog out of the way. ‘Alright, here we go. Oh my god, I need a blindfold or something.’
His mother can be seen puckering her lips and squinting her eyes before Chris moves in and kisses her.
After the short kiss, the pair pull away from each other and start shouting and laughing. Chris says: ‘Oh my god. What does that feel like for you as my mom kissing your son?’
‘I feel like you’re two years old,’ his mother says. The bizarre clip ends just after Chris faces the camera and says: ‘I’ve got to go wash my mouth right now.’
Chris’ latest attempt at viral fame comes just weeks after he rocked social media by sharing a video of himself passionately kissing his half-sister Katilyn O’Connor.
And while his original video received over seven million views, his latest video has received a meer 600,000 views so far.
In his first clip, the online star can be seen telling the camera that he knows he ‘owes’ his fans ‘something big’, before revealing that he was planning to kiss his sister, who is based in the San Francisco Bay area, in what proved to be one of his most controversial stunts yet.

The video sent shock waves through his fan base, with viewers blasting the prank for a variety of reasons; some slammed the stunt as fake, while others criticized Chris for putting his sister in such an uncomfortable position for the sake of YouTube views.
‘I owe you guys a crazy video, and in this one, I’m going to try and kiss my sister,’ he tells the camera at the start of the five-minute clip, before explaining that he was planning to ask his sister to play ‘a really quick game for a quick kiss’.
He then clarifies that Kaitlyn is in fact his half-sister, meaning they are not ‘fully’ related, however he confesses that he knows that doesn’t stop the prank from being ‘really weird’. The fact that Kaitlyn is his half-sister also means that they are still blood relatives, however they share only one parent instead of two.
Chris also praised his extremely close relationship with Kaitlyn on his Instagram account just two days before the video was posted, sharing a picture of the two of them while writing: ‘You’re my half-sister but it honestly doesn’t feel like it — so thankful we’ve stayed so close all our lives.’
After introducing the video, Chris proceeds to ‘stalk’ his sister for an hour, filming her from a distance as she walks around their house, before confronting her in her bedroom.
‘I’m so nervous, I don’t know if I should ask her,’ he tells the camera. ‘I’ve tried like five times to ask her because she’s my sister and I don’t want her to think I’m crazy.
‘I feel like such a creep, I’ve been stalking my sister upstairs for the past hour. I feel like a creep so I’m just going to go up there.’
He explains that his plan is to go to her room under the pretense that he wants to film her for his candid ‘vlog’ channel, saying he will ‘make conversation’ with her before ‘popping the question’.

No stopping them: Despite pausing the kiss to check his phone when it rings, Chris then returns to the kiss, with the pair making out several times in the space of a few minutes
Once in her room, Chris videos himself chatting to Kaitlyn about old photographs that she has up on her wall – ironically focusing on pranks that she has pulled on him in the past.
‘You guys think I’m the biggest prankster on YouTube? My sister should have her own channel. She’s been pranking me since the beginning,’ he tells his subscribers, while recalling a time when Kaitlyn smashed birthday cake in his face.
The video then cuts to the two of them sitting on Kaitlyn’s bed, with Chris exclaiming: ‘I finally got the courage to come up here and ask my sister if she wanted to play a quick game for a kiss.
‘I’m literally sweating right now because I’m so nervous.’
After Kaitlyn says she’s ‘not really’ keen to go ahead with the prank, she agrees, with her brother praising her for ‘helping him out’.
The siblings then play a round of rock, paper, scissors; although they don’t discuss the rules, it seems clear that if Chris wins, the pair will have to kiss, while if Kaitlyn wins, the prank won’t happen.
Chris wins the round, rock to scissors, leaving his sister giggling nervously as he reaches for her face while saying, ‘This is so awkward.’
‘I don’t even want to like hug you,’ Kaitlyn tells her brother as the pair awkwardly try to get into a comfortable position for the kiss. As he leans in, she then pulls back, saying, ‘No, stop. I don’t want to kiss you.’
‘Are you backing out?’ he asks her, while she turns her attention to the bedroom door and says, ‘I think dad might be here.’
Chris leaps up to make sure that they don’t have any unwanted company before sitting back down on the bed and reaching his hands out towards his sister – who appears to feel much more uncomfortable about the situation.
‘Close’: Two days before the video was posted, Chris took to Instagram to praise his bond with his sister, saying that it ‘honestly doesn’t feel like’ she is his half-sibling
Promotion: At the end of the video, Chris tells his viewers to go and check out his sister’s Instagram account, noting that she is a ‘model’
‘One time, this is like a life experience, we won’t forget this, it will like bond us,’ Chris then tells his sister, before they quickly peck on the lips, and she descends into nervous laughter, wiping her mouth and saying: ‘Ugh I’m going to go and kill myself.’
Despite her clear horror at the encounter however, the brief kiss does not have been enough for Chris’s liking, and the YouTuber leans back in, pulling his sister’s face towards his hand on the back of her neck.
The pair enjoy a much more passionate, open-mouthed kiss the second time around, with Chris holding his hands on his sister’s face as she rests her arm on his shoulder.
Their embrace is interrupted by the sound of Chris’s ringing phone however, and he breaks away to silence it, telling the camera, ‘It’s like the earth is trying to make it not happen, I’m getting a random caller in the middle of this, this never happens.’
Awkwardly, Kaitlyn seemed to think that she was, quite literally, saved by the bell, announcing that ‘this is the end of this’ – just as her brother turns back to grab her face once again, pulling her in for a third kiss, while telling her, ‘Come here.’
Despite protesting ‘no’ as her brother grabs her head, Kaitlyn readily leans in for the embrace, wrapping an arm around her brother’s neck as they proceed to make out for around 15 seconds, before Chris turns to the camera to stare into the lens, leaving his sister in a fit of nervous laughter once again.
Chris then turns back to his sibling and grabs her face for a fourth kiss, awkwardly tangling her hair up between their mouths, before they finally break away from their last embrace and turn to face the camera, Kaitlyn wiping her mouth in the process.
Too far: Chris spoke out over the weekend to defend the video against viewers who accused him of using an actress to pretend to be his sister
Over the top: Many viewers pointed out that Chris and Kaitlyn seemed too enthusiastic about the kiss, and questioned why they made out more than once
‘How was that?’ he asks, adding: ‘I am literally sweating so badly. What was that like?’
His sister tells him: ‘I never want to do that again,’ as he falls back on the bed and says, ‘What I do for YouTube…’
‘Thank you so much to Kaitlyn for being in this video,’ he says as he begins to wrap up the clip. ‘Our relationship will never be the same again.’
He then reveals that his sister ‘also models’, and encourages his viewers to go and check out her Instagram – ironically noting that it’s ‘weird’ that he’s urging people to look at pictures of his sibling.
Unsurprisingly, the video racked up dozens of comments from shocked viewers, many of whom insisted that the video must be fake, joking that they couldn’t wait for the video where he revealed the woman was actually someone he had hired for the clip.
However, Chris spoke to The Sun over the weekend, and insisted that they are most certainly related, proudly saying: ‘She is my real half-sister. So, true she is not fully my blood but she is half and that is a fact.’
Other people accused the YouTuber and his sister of being too enthusiastic about the kiss, with one person writing: ‘You said one kiss!!! You guys kissed like 10 times and enjoyed it!!!’
Another chimed in: ‘Would it be wrong to say I feel like they do this all the time? They’re just y’know a TINY bit too comfortable doing this?? You feel me??’
Some viewers joked that they themselves felt as though they had done something wrong by merely watching the video. ‘I feel like I committed a crime just by watching this video,’ one pointed out.
