Realising the success of '' -- the video blog of a tech-savvy pensioner on YouTube who has clocked over 1.5 million views -- LubeTube's founders aim to harness the untapped ability of the modern OAP and exploit them in new and exciting ways.
The chief founder, Sergey Middleton, claims that more and more OAPs are turning to the Internet for entertainment these days, and the success of geriatric1927 only goes to highlight that these pensioners are more than able to master the simple tools used by video sharing services. He seems to have overlooked that most OAPs are only interested in two things on the Web: the price of beef and things that need complaining about. This philosophy recently prompted the creation of GodTube -- a video-sharing site for evangelicals to preach to netizens about the meaning of life and the reality behind creationism. LubeTube aims to bring together two other things the Net is now famous for: sex and social networking.
The blogosphere was shocked this morning to hear of a project that's just received $100,000 in venture-capital funding. Dubbed 'LubeTube', Breadfast Media's new YouTube-esque video-sharing project aims to provide online erotica diaries made by and aimed at the over-65s.
The new media explosion may be getting out of hand as we hear that 'LubeTube' -- the OAP-targeted video-sharing site -- has earned $100,000 in venture capital funding
