I tend to think it was. So you're in a pub/bar and someone wearing something outlandish on his head appears. That alone doesn't necessarily lead to strong responses, but add the fact that this guy's head is now a 24/7 webcam that might be feeding the scene straight to a hidden audience and you can see how this might put some people on edge when they are suddenly confronted with this possibility.
And, given the fact that the offending object (not him, the glasses!) is just an arm's length away, well...
