People all over the world have thanked an 84-year-old YouTuber for serving to them deal with anxieties in regards to the coronavirus pandemic.
John Butler has attracted thousands and thousands of views and greater than 120,000 subscribers together with his philosophical movies about life and meditation.
The softly spoken ex-farmer grew to become an unlikely YouTube star when an interview he gave in 2016 grew to become fashionable with the web Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response (ASMR) group.
ASMR is a tingly feeling some folks get once they hear quiet, whispery noises.
“I think John’s videos bring with them so much freedom in a time where we feel so physically restricted,” UK viewer Jasmine Butcher stated.
Mr Butler, from Bakewell, Derbyshire, stated: “I’d never heard of YouTube. Hardly knew what internet was.”
