ok so in the video did Robin Finck (the one with the gold les paul) put tape over where there was a neck pickup? and is there a reason for removing a pup?

I tell a lie, there is no such thing.

No, there isn't really a good reason to. I mean, it'll just sound the same as not having the neck pickup on. He may just not want to deal with it?

Not unless you want to simplify your wiring, no.

Which is a pretty retarded reason in itself.

wut. having less pickups means there's less load on the circuit which makes the remaining pickup behave differently.

Not really. If you put your toggle in the bridge position it removes the neck pickup from the circuit. Therefore it has no bearing on the signal path. Removing pots, yes.
There are lots of guitar players that only use a bridge pickup and there are an equal amount that probably think the Les Paul toggle switch is in an inconvenient place. Finck is probably both of those.
