You're 60 for Gods sake. Let it go, creep, and take up a hobby befitting your age like model trains, mahjong or stamp collecting.

Drinking is a pretty popular hobby with men his age, which he seems to already enjoy.

What’s the relevance of him calling himself a Youtuber? There’s no indication that he actually is.

Because he was intoxicated. Duh!

Pure clickbait. It makes it look like it might be another "nuisance streamer" story...and not just some drunk stumbling up to the wrong house.

What a d head. Hopefully a long stint in the slammer is ahead. He can be an 'influencer' in the showers.

60 is not old. I'm 59 and some still stop to ask me for directions (until they notice that I'm not Japanese - but as they hear my precise delivery, they slaver thanks - runners know how to get places).

Probably happening a few times each day...nothing serious since nothing happened.

Simply having a YouTube account does not afford one the ability to call oneself a YouTuber.

What's his youtube account so we can verify?

Breaking home...nothing was broken.

Nothing happened I confirm.
