Early life of Jack and Jack
Now this is a patent case of what they call, “Made for each other”. Jack and Jack met in their Kindergarten. What caught their attention was the fact that both of them were named “Jack” and that they both were wearing the same shirt. With time, their friendship aged like wine. They started their first collaboration in 2007, which was “MotherFalconQuagmire”, a YouTube channel. Their content featured them lip syncing to songs, some satires and comedy. The YouTube channel was made in their leisure time, but covered a lot of audience and was quite appreciated. However, once they entered the high school, they couldn’t give it much time and the channel lost its popularity.
Jack Edward Johnson is 1.74 m tall and weighs 65 Kgs, while Jack Finnegan Gilinsky is 1.78 m tall and weighs 71 kg.
In 2013, the duo took to the “Vines” app and started posting their short clips on it. The clips featured them doing fun with several songs. One of their vines was the “Nerd Vandals clip” that was even praised by the “Huffington Post”. The duo with their amazing comic sense, bagged 25000 followers in no time. They started making short covers for different songs and also released series like “When This Song Comes On”. They wore wigs and portrayed girls, they played nerds, they played strict parents and redefined humour. With the “Magcon tour”, they collaborated with various other artists and travelled to different cities to accomplish shows.
With one of the gaming companies in Omaha “SkyVu Entertainment”, they launched their own gaming apps like “Let It Goat” and “Jack & Jack Vines Puzzle Game”. Jack & Jack met the Eakin brothers in 2013. The sophomores helped them to record their songs and release them in “itunes” etc. After the release of their first single, “Distance”, they joined hands with Shawn Mendes and Steve Aoki. They were approached by several record labels but turned down every offer saying, “Why get our money stolen, or make less money, when we can get our songs on the exact same spot on the charts ourselves? We’re going to stay independent as long as we can, until we see the benefit from the record label.”
In 2020, Jack Gilinsky released his solo song that featured “Don Toliver” and was called “My love”. Soon after, he did an interview declaring his split with Jack Finnegan. Jack Finnegan also released his solo “You lie” and used the name “JVCKJ”.

“And you never know, tomorrow might not end up happening. So I kept it movin’, got my foot on the gas. Life’s better when you’re livin’ it fast, man, that’s a fact!” Make each day of your life perfect and live it like you’d live the last one. The more you think and complicate things, the more you’ll ruin the zest and kill their essence.
Well, if you’re a broken heart, Jack and Jack have the best lines for you. “You know how it goes when you fall for the wrong one. I love you, I hate you- it ain’t cool, it’s fucked up! Crazy how two people fall in love with each other just to turn around and hurt one another. It’s fucked up! You know how it goes when you fall for the wrong one.”
Well, life isn’t always as painful as we think it is. It gifts us with the best people of our lives. And when you find someone, do not forget to sing to them, “Never thought I’d find this woman, but here you are in front of me. So I think we should get a move on. Got no time to waste so let’s just cut to the chase.”
