Hey Brother!

―J or Ben at the beginning of a video

Jonathan "J" Louis Carlin (born: February 4, 1988 (1988-02-04) [age 32]) and Benjamin Pratt Carlin (born: October 25, 1989 (1989-10-25) [age 30]) are an American YouTube duo who created the channel SuperCarlinBrothers. Jonathan uploads a video every Tuesday and Ben uploads a video every Thursday, and all their videos (except Fast Facts) begin with "Hey, brother!" J's videos end with "I will see you in another life, brother" and Ben's end with "I will see you on Tuesday". J's sign off line might be inspired by the line used by the character Desmond Hume in Lost. J is the older of the two.
