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 geriatric1927which 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.

At the time of this post, more than 10,000 people have subscribed to his videos.
