Apparently, a new JacksGap.com is coming..
I’ve heard to many great things about the people and culture of Morocco. Really excited to experience it.
Unfortunately, I’ve never met Jack or Finn but I know that the day I’ll meet them my life will be complete because they are such huge inspirations. I first came across them when I saw pictures/gifs of them on my dashboard and like most people I must admit the first thing that caught me were their gorgeous faces. So out of curiosity I found out who they were and thought, “Oh just another two pretty faces making youtube videos” but once I started watching a few of their videos I realized they were so much more than that- they’re extremely funny, sweet, and most importantly so generous. After watching the Sri Lanka video and the Rickshaw Run series I realized how much they care about making other people smile and thats what I admire about them the most, they kinda make you want to become better people everyday. I also adore their love for photography and adventure and it pushes me to sometimes break out of my shell and try things out of the ordinary. I hope they realize how far they are going to go in terms of becoming content creators/filmmakers and how many people they’re inspiring.
So sadly I have never met Jack and Finn but, they have inspired me so much. Every time I watch the videos in which they travel to a certain location I literally pick up my camera and go outside to take pictures. Thanks to them that I actually get off my phone and go get fresh air outside lol. Anyway, I hope that one day i get to travel around the world and help people like they both do and I also hope that I’ll get to meet them.
It’s stories like these that make filmmaking so powerful. Director David Barnes has created a series of portraits that tells the story of different children…

Hello there! Wassup guys, how you doing? It’s Lovensia.
For the very first time, I had no idea about youtuber or internet kid or something like JacksGap. I open my facebook home, I found nothing special there and it makes me bored, but then I read a status with a video below it “I love this video!!” I didn’t know what video it was, ‘cause I just saw 2 boys with similar faces, I interested with it, so I clicked the link. That was “Snail Mail 2” and obviously became my 1st time seeing Jack and Finn. I was grinning along the video until the end. I just realized that they’re a twin, very very “Cheeky”. I only watch one video of them. Few months later, I missed to watch a video like that again, but I don’t have any clue to search it on youtube, I remembered the name of the channel lil bit, so I wrote “jacks gap” on youtube. Finally I discovered them again with so many video that I’ve never thought before. I watched all of them, moreover I’m still waiting for their next video now. Anyway I found Jack and Finn in hilarious side that makes me always interesting to them.
How JacksGap inspired me.
- Jack and Finn love to travel outside England, it inspires me to travel the world. Especially their hometown, “The Great Britain”.
- Jack and Finn love photography, with their awesome skills of photography, it inspires me to be a world photographer although my dream is being an architect. I saw so many photos of them in instagram and that was amazing!
- Jack and Finn inspired me to be a positive teenager and helpful. As a youth, Jack and Finn have a role for change this world, like they often do charity to help the people who need it and it such a good way to change this world to be better.
- Jack and Finn have their own company of designing and making movie called “Digital Natives Studio" in their young ages and it inspires me to make achievement on something that I love. We know that Jack and Finn are a movie maker, beginning on their hobby now it’s developed to be a good job. It inspires me so much on what happen in the next of my future.
- Jack and Finn is such a crazy, insane, mad internet kids who related to technology. They know everything about technology, from the past until present. It such a good youth knowledge, in our high technology era, it inspires me to do something with this world for change using the technology. And one more! I am so inspired with Jack and Finn’s t-shirt from Johny Cupcake that written on it “DO MORE OF WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY” it takes me out of stress when I was studying math that I sometimes can’t and I must often studying because I’m so close with national exam, so I do the thing that I love to throw my stress as long as it positive and makes me happy.
The Harries Twins, are not just a good looking guys who loved by many girls, they are role model for the youth. If you agree with me. They are inspiring. They are something that could have a great role for the world. Yes they can! I don’t care if people though they are just silly boys who make random video on youtube, but that is art which is good. It’s positive and it so hilarious. And people love laughing right? They are idiot sometimes, which is turn them into genius mind.
I haven’t meet them yet, but I though I will in the future! Doesn’t really care you got meet them and have a selfie with them. I want that too! But the point is, how they inspire people and yes, they did! Jack + Finn = Cheeky. Spread the love!
Hey! My name is Nuria, I’m from Spain, and this is my story of how Jack and Finn inspire me :)
I could write one million words about how Jack and Finn inspire me, what they’ve done for me, how much they mean to me, how much I love them… I could spend a whole day talking about them and their amazing achievements, so writing just a brief text about it is going to be hard, but here is it. The story of how I discovered the most beautiful and inspiring duo in the world.
I could never forget the day I found them, I was bored and I wasn’t having the best of the days, and I was on twitter looking for some entertainment, but I couldn’t imagine that, that day, I was about to discover the reason of my smile. This girl tweeted a video of two british twins and I decided to take a look at it. A moment after Jack and Finn showed their faces at the camera, I was vigorously smiling at my screen. I didn’t know why a boy talking about why he was the older twin made me laugh that much, but if only 4:21 minutes of those twins made me that happy, I knew that I wanted to watch more of them.
The next week I spent every afternoon watching every single video they posted on their channel. That went on until they posted the South Africa video. I thought “well, this is quite different”. I watched the whole video three times, and that was the day I knew Jack and Finn were not only youtubers, but life-changers, because they changed my life, they made me want to achieve my goals no matter what and inspired me to become what I am now. But they not only changed mine, they’ve changed the life of those kids in the Rainbow Centre in Sri Lanka, they’ve changed the life of those people struggling with cancer everyday, Jack and Finn, you’ve saved over 3.000.000 lives, and I hope you guys know it, because it’s amazing. Now I know that whatever I do, if I can help others, I will do it, with no regrets. And I have to thank them because, one day they made me smile for 4:21minutes straight, now I smile for the whole 24 hours of a day. Thank you Jack and Finn, here’s to the exciting future you have planned for JacksGap, and thank you for getting us involved in it, even if it’s just by letting us watch you guys grow. I love you.

April 20: Jack, Finn and a viewer had dinner in Morocco
Hello there! My name is Bruna I have 19 I’m from Brazil and I came here to tell you a bit of my story. Yeah, I know, this letter is to thanks you, but trust me, I’ll get there. Two years ago I moved alone to a different city, I finished my last year in high school, I left my favorite places, I left my routine, my friends, the people who I love to follow some dreams, to become a better person. In Brazil we have one single test system to get into university, for example, if the uni offers 20 places to a certain course the people who get the highest score in this test are approved. So, there are preparatory classes for this test, it’s like review all matters of high school but in there you are studying with older people. And at the time I joined this class my life stopped. The people I lived with saw me as a rival we don’t make friends in this kind of class so my routine was class-home, every day. I spent hours without talking to someone. It was then I started to close myself for the world. I stopped caring about how I looked like even because no one really saw me. I stopped answering my old friends, I stopped caring. After 6 months everything got worse when I failed to get in the University of my dreams. I had failed everyone who had placed their hopes in me. I had failed with my parents and above all I had failed with me. I thought that I hadn’t done enough and all suffering and effort had been for nothing. Was when my real world became secondary and my life turned into books and internet. I ended up creating my own reality and I just got worse. I no longer get out more anymore, I slept 15 hours a day, I didn’t eat…I really didn’t know what I was doing with my life. I got into a bad university on a course that I didn’t want and just for a second I thought things might improve and I will finally found my person but I wasn’t happy at all. In 3 months I felt as I couldn’t anymore. I learned nothing, I had no friends and I lost myself on the way. In 1 year I’ve had ups and downs. Usually downs but I would be lying if I said I never felt happy in these year. Things happened that didn’t necessarily make me feel insecure but they made me doubt who I really am. I did have body issues. I didn’t feel fat but I felt like I had to disappear. I didn’t want anyone to see me. I wanted to escape from my reality. I had no energy for anything. I was stagnant. So I began to spend more time on Tumblr because in there I saw people who understood me. It was on Tumblr the first time I saw a Picture from Jack and Finn. I remember that I loved the picture and I found them very cute so I reblogged. A few weeks later I saw a gif with a funny legend and I gave a like just to remember look for those boys. I remember the first thing I thought when I saw that gif. Jack… Jack is like me but with a manufacturing defect that distinguishes him as a man. He is a fool, a joker and he has authenticity, he is original. Jack is one of those people who are not afraid to show his soul, he is open. Finn had this smile without teeth that showed a guy mysterious and sexy, he had this closed air. But when he laughs then I saw the true Finn hidden within himself. I remember well the first video from JacksGap that I saw. I was back home because somehow my mother noticed that I wasn’t well at all. I was inside my room for days. It was a twin mail video and… just happened. The first laugh I’ve had in months happened. Then I started watching those videos because it felt good and every time I laughed louder and louder. I remember when my mother came into the room, I was holding my belly, and she asked “Are you crying again darling” and I said “No mom, I’m laughing”. She opened a big smile and said “your smile is so beautiful daughter, you should do this more. You are a pretty girl and you know… the world is waiting for you outside”. I think after that I ended up watching all the videos I could find on YouTube, just to laugh a little more. At the end of the week I raised my ass out of bed and called for an old friends and I think that was when I knew things would get better. I finally had the courage to ask for help.
I started going to the hospital and to a psychologist every day to deal with my food issues and my self-esteem. Today I am much better, I have a new perspective and I have new dreams. I am studying medicine at a wonderful university because if I’ve learned anything from this whole story is that there is no better feeling in the world than help people. You may not understand my need for blood and cuts, but when a life hangs by a thread and you can give everything to save her you realize that all the efforts worthwhile. JacksGap opened a new door for me and I want to share here all my thanks to this great community of youtubers. I guess I’m kind of voice to so many people who are suffering at home. You guys helped me want to live, you showed me that the world is not so scary and you showed me that meet new people makes you a better person. I have learned to control my feelings; I learned that I can do anything. I learned to give real value to those who love me not for what I have, but for who I’m. I learned that no one is equal. I am very proud that your videos are leading us to a different way because you realize that you have the power to help thousands of people and it made us realize that you are not just pretty faces. I wanted you to know that you inspire me every day. You know… if weren’t for my bags full of memories or that story that makes more than a year, I wouldn’t be me. If weren’t for my aunts with all the goodies or if I boy would be more beloved, if went wrong, I wouldn’t be me. And if wasn’t the pain, If wasn’t God playing the writer, If wasn’t Mickey and fridays and Sancho Panza, if wasn’t the Princesses and Captain Hook, If wasn’t JacksGap I wouldn’t be me! You’ve done many videos thanking all the affection that fans give to you. But I think the time has come for someone be on this side of camera and say thank you. Thank you for help me find my smile.
With Love, jacksgapsourcee
