In the video, a young girl, who claims to be 15 years old, is seen interacting briefly with Weingrod before abruptly leaving the scene. Weingrod, using the alias 'Boris', insists that he was unaware of the girl's age and believed her to be 23. He characterizes their interaction as playful banter.

After the encounter, Weingrod attempts to leave, but Vitaly and Bradley relentlessly pursue him. They even go as far as using pink and blue gunpowder cannons in their chase. Seeking refuge in a nearby building, Weingrod manages to evade the YouTubers with the help of a security guard who bars their entry.
