We have a two for one this week with the Harries twins Jackson Frayn “Jack” and Finnegan Frayn “Finn”, both of course born May 13, 1993, making them 24 years old. Together they started JacksGap, which was a British YouTube channel originally formed by Jack in 2011, which experienced a rapid increase in popularity after the addition of Finn as a regular contributor.

In 2013 the twins began to create 15-minute-long episodes about their travels in India, funding the venture with £20,000 from Skype, Sony and MyDestination. As of March 2015, JacksGap had over 4 million subscribers. https://www.youtube.com/user/JacksGap

In January 2015, JacksGap posted a video called “Let’s Talk About Mental Health” that was later referenced in an article on The Huffington Post in which he addresses the importance of starting an open conversation about mental health in order to reduce the stigma attached to it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gkZiBnL0h7Y

In April 2015, JacksGap posted a video called “What Do You Believe In?” that announced Finn had moved to New York City earlier that year to study Design and Architecture for three and a half years at the Parsons School of Design, though he is still a part of JacksGap. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jq7_SKjBIXo

The last video to be uploaded on the channel was made in December 2015 and entitled “Our Changing Climate”. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gE7vkCz39eg

MCB applauds these young men for using their celebrity for more than just goofing off and instead offering substantive material dealing with serious issues of our time. Good job guys!
