Grigory Mamurin: Meet the Rich Russian Kid Who Uses His Grandfather’s Millions to Humiliate People on YouTube

Grigory Mamurin, who is also known as Grisha amongst his fans, is a teenage YouTuber and the grandson of a wealthy Russian media and property oligarch, meaning he’s young and has a ton of money to play with.

Mamurin, who will be 17 this year, has gained notoriety for his video stunts in which he pays random people hundreds of dollars to prove they have no self-respect or dignity — to him, he’s just proving that people will do literally anything for quick cash.




His YouTube channel, Gregory Goldsheid, has amassed nearly 800,000 subscribers by documenting all the way people on the streets will humiliate themselves for cash which includes licking his shoes, pouring tomato juice all over themselves, crawling on the ground acting like a dog, stripping naked in public, getting naked in his Mercedes or Lamborghini, drinking a bottle of his urine, shaving their heads, and even using a gun to shoot a random dog (fortunately the gun is secretly disabled).


Mamurin is the grandson of 69-year-old media and property multi-millionaire Igor Neklyudov. In 2015, he filmed himself smoking a cigar, undressing two lingerie models and spraying champagne on another in a hotel room.


Mamurin insists that these “social experiments” are just a revealing aspect of human nature, according to Daily Mail:

“I’m not judging these people. I believe that they have circumstances or problems that would make them do that. I don’t know what I’d do if I had problems like that in my life.”


While his most recent video show him paying strangers to pour tomato juice all over themselves, his most outrageous from last year involves meeting random women and paying them to flash in public and make out with him.


In another video, he walks up to strangers carrying a small dog on a leash in one hand and a gun in another. He explains to the strangers:

“Excuse me, can I have a minute of your time? I have a problem. My girlfriend left me and her dog is still with me, she didn’t have time yet to take him.

“I want revenge on her but I can’t do it myself. Will you kill the dog? I’m serious, I’m ready to pay for it.

“Here, I’ll give you 5,000 roubles. I have a pneumatic gun. Just shoot a couple of times and walk away with the money.”

For 5,000 Rubles, which is about $75, one man even offers to take the dog in an alley and snap its neck with his bare hands. Another man goes as far as to pull the trigger, though fortunately, the gun was disabled.

Mamurin said the result of that experiment was “unfortunate”.


Another video shows a negotiation between Mamurin and a couple who have allegedly been together for two years. Mamurin initially offers the couple over $2,200 if he can take the man’s girlfriend to a nearby hotel for two hours while the boyfriend waits in the lobby. Shocked, the man threatens to beat Mamurin but he presses on. Eventually, the man talks him up to $250,000 Rubles, or about $3,800.

“Let’s agree on this then. Without any toys or anything similar. Use a condom,” the man says. Of course, while Mamurin insists that none of his videos are staged in any way, the video doesn’t show what actually occurred between him and the man’s girlfriend at the hotel.


Mamurin has been criticized as depicting the worst of Russia’s moral decay since the fall of the Soviet Union. Siberian Minister of Parliament, Oleg Smolin, has labled Mamurin a “spiritual invalid,” saying:

“He treats his own people and his own peers as trash. But in fact he behaves exactly like this precise trash.”

dogMedia reports claim that Mamurin’s grandfather and family have tried to dissuade him from such projects, but Mamurin himself claims that his family is understanding of his video “experiments.”

“No-one from my family has told me it’s time to stop the project. Everyone knows what I’m doing and what sort of message I’m trying to send. I’ve explained to my family what moral lies behind the videos, but of course, grandpa didn’t approve of my activity.”


Mamurin’s mother reportedly works hard to keep her son away from the spotlight as much as possible, requiring reporters to contact her if they want an interview with him. One Russian journalist complained:

“An interview must be agreed with Grigory’s mother. How interesting. He is big enough to touch up girls online, but when it comes to talking to journalists, his mum has to be asked.”




If I was in his shoes, I probably would be doing the same or similar.

I can't hate him for saying this. He is giving people money for doing dumb things. I can bet if he asked me to do most of these things for a good amount of cash, I would probably do them. He lost me on the dog thing, but I am really not sure how to feel about this guy. I also can't say I wouldn't do similar things if I was as rich as him.

All I can say is he at least recognizes that he wouldn't know if he would do these things or not if he wasn't rich.

This reminds me of an episode of Medium where a teenager goes one offering a mentally ill homeless man money to mutilate himself. Bit disturbing.


Also, 1stladyent , I love you.

Well, at least he's not totally wasting the money. Probably gets some of it back from YouTube.

I like him. Is their choice to take the money or walk away.
Besides shame can be wash away with success.

“Social experiments"? Give me a break. Why would he pick this particular "social experiment" and do it in this particular way?

I'd be willing to bet 100,000 Rubles that his targets are not "random." I'm sure he is profiling them one way or another in most if not all cases.

Given that, best case scenario here is that it's all staged which makes him just another arbitrary attention whore who can take it to the next level because he's rich.

Worst case would be that he's actually taking advantage of people who are in desperate situations and having them humiliate themselves for his and others amusement. This would make him another rich narcissistic a-hole.

Either way I'm sure he'll get plenty of subscribers.
