In 2007, John and his younger brother Hank, decided to go an entire year without using textual communication. Instead, they did daily video blogs on YouTube and talked on the phone. Their vlog project, Brotherhood 2.0, gathered thousands of followers who came to be known as Nerdfighters.
John is also well-known as being one half of the Vlogbrothers channel on YouTube, a channel in which John and his brother Hank Green regularly vlog back and forth to one another. John is the older brother and the one who had the idea for the video blog, originally an idea for the brothers to get to know one another better, but now has a substantial following. John's videos often consist of him discussing political issues (often while eating toilet paper or covering his face in peanut butter) and talking about philosophical topics.
John lives in Indianapolis, Indiana with his wife (who he affectionately refers to as The Yeti because she is never seen on screen and is presumably camera-shy), his son Henry, and their dog Willy (full name Firebolt Wilson Roberts). He often makes fun of the fact that he isn't good at math, one time forgetting that a minute has 60 seconds and instead saying it has 100.
Person 2: Yeah, I always love it when John Green covers his face in peanut butter.
