Grandparents with webcam become new online stars

MCMINNVILLE, Ore. (AP) - An unsuspecting Oregon couple's ascendance to YouTube stardom happened by accident.

Grandparents Esther and Bruce Huffman unwittingly pressed "record" on their new laptop's web camera in mid-August.

The resulting video, recorded without their knowledge, captures them goofing around, worrying about wrinkles in their faces and questioning whether the camera is working.

The couple's granddaughter asked permission to post the video online, where it has racked up more than 2 million hits on YouTube by Thursday.
