Jonathan "J" Louis Carlin (born: February 4, 1988) and Ben Pratt Carlin are a 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.
J married his high school sweetheart Beth on June 27, 2015. J and Beth announced the upcoming birth of their first child on July 18 2017 in a video entitled "How Pixar Almost Deleted Itself" and in several Instagram and Facebook posts prior to the YouTube announcement. Their son, Luke William Carlin, was born on November 29,2017, being born six weeks premature. He spent two weeks in the NICU and has since been released.
Ben is currently in a relationship with a girl named Alice as stated in a Mario 8 game. J and Ben upload videos occasionally about theories, usually revolving around the Pixar universe.
Ben uploads videos on Fast Facts, where he lists fun facts about films, including Pixar, the Harry Potter movies, the Hunger Games movies, and the original Star Wars trilogy. The series was inspired by the videos of FootofaFerret. Also, upon hearing the news of J's son, fans in the comments section/towel section started #SuperCarlinBaby.
J and Ben have made multiple videos involving Harry Potter, Pixar, Disney, Marvel, The Hunger Games and Star Wars. Both Carlin brothers are proud Slytherins and have talked in defense of it in one video named In Defense Of Slytherin.
They have done 15 J vs Ben videos where they have done quizzes on topics related to Harry Potter, Frozen, The Incredibles, Monsters Inc. and Toy Story. Among these, they have done one J vs Ben predictions video on The Last Jedi.
