geriatric1927 – YouTube Cyber celeb

YouTube, the popular online home video site, has an unexpected star — a septuagenarian
British widower — whose soft-spoken, humble manner has won the hearts of users of
the youth dominated Web site.

Peter posted his first video on YouTube about
a week ago, under the user name geriatric1927 which
refers to the year of his birth. He called it “first try.”

In the clip, which starts with “geriatric gripes and grumbles” and some blues music,
Peter tells how he became addicted to YouTube.

“It’s a fascinating place to go to see all the wonderful videos that you young people
have produced so I thought I would have a go at doing one myself,” he says, sitting
against a backdrop of floral wallpaper and family photographs.

“What I hope I will be able to do is to just to bitch and grumble about life in general
from the perspective of an old person who has been there and done that and hopefully
you will respond in some way by your comments.”
