The video was discovered on September 30, 2011 and it quickly began to spread. The beginning of the the video had text explaining the video was meant to humiliate Greg because he humiliated his ex, most likely Adrienne, by suggesting she had STDs and was unclean on his YouTube channel. The text also claims this person hacked the Onision channel and uploaded this video to it to get it suspended, but Greg deleted it before anyone saw it. This is most likely untrue.

SimilaritiesSource) Some believed this was evidence that the video was actually of Greg.
Greg replied to the video the same day it was discovered. He uploaded "Faked Leaked Tape" to his Speaks channel. In the video, Greg laughs about the RedTube video. He points out the person in the video does not have his "Remember Love" wrist tattoos and their pubic hair is blonde. He ends the video with, "I have been successfully trolled... come one guys you can do better that that." ($ource)
A questionable factor of the video was the room the video was recorded in. It did not look similar to any rooms of his house in Washington or Cyr's apartment, which is where he lived at time.
Adrienne herself even confirmed the video was fake in a chat. Although, there is no existing source to this.
On October 12, 2011, it was discovered the video had been removed from RedTube.
It is not known who posted the video.
