Logan Austin Thirtyacre is an American YouTuber and social media influencer. Known to him fans simply as “Logan”, he is the creator and owner of the SuperMarioLogan channel and franchise. A Florida native, Logan was heavily influenced by the Super Mario platform video games and FroggyCompany's Mario plush videos. In 2007, he set up his first YouTube channel, which he named supermariologan1994 but deleted it soon after. In December the same year, he created his second channel, “SuperMarioLogan”, where he posted his first video. In time, he began collaborating with other members of his family, friends, and other creators on YouTube. He also set up several other channels. To entertain his ever-growing audience, he plays with toys and action figures, destroys stuff, and makes colossal messes in his videos. As of March 2018, the main channel has accumulated over five million subscribers. In December 2017, all the videos on his main channel were demonetised after YouTube began to implement the age-restriction rule. He announced in February 2018 that he will upload all future videos on his second channel “SuperLuigiLogan”, as it has not been demonetised yet.
In 2007, at the age of 12, Logan created his first YouTube channel, supermariologan1994. He deleted the account shortly after and on December 8, 2007, he set up the channel ‘SuperMarioLogan’. He posted his first video ‘Super Mario Got Milk’ that same day. Essentially a remake of the ‘Got Milk Super Mario 64’ commercial from the late 1990s, the video earned him a modest fanbase right at the beginning.
His channel began to really take off when he introduced Mama Luigi, an early-generation character, who is a mentally underdeveloped clone of Mario’s brother Luigi. His subscriber count soon began to grow exponentially.
On March 1, 2008, Logan set up another channel, SuperLuigiLogan. Originally intended for SLL Movies, SLL Shorts, gameplay videos, and animated works, Logan soon designated it for updates and other things connected to his main channel. He created the third channel in the franchise on April 15, 2008, and named it SuperBowserLogan. He founded the fourth channel on 15 April as well, naming it SuperPeachLogan.
Logan has matured over the years; so has his content. There was a time when he used to upload randomly and without properly editing his videos. Now, he posts highly-professional videos twice a week. He often breaks the fourth wall in his videos, addressing his audience directly
He has also removed multiple old videos as he has come to understand how dumb or insensitive or both they were.

Controversies & Scandals
Logan, like many other YouTubers, was hit by the site’s age-restriction policy on December 11, 2007, and all his videos, from ‘Super Mario Got Milk’ to his most recent update was rendered age-restricted. Many of his well-wishers believe that it was due to YouTube erroneously associating him with the Elsagate Controversy. While Logan never tried to lure kids with false titles and tags, his channel did use plush toys and characters that generally appeal to kids while featuring mature content suitable only for adults. The opinions of fellow YouTubers are divided, with some coming out in support of Logan and others severely criticising him.
It all began when a mother told the British tabloid newspaper ‘The Sun’ that she had caught her son trying to hang himself. When she asked him why he would do something like that, he supposedly told her that he was inspired by an episode of ‘SML Shorts’, ‘Jeffy’s Tantrum’. Logan informed his fans on Instagram on February 28, 2018, that YouTube had begun demonetizing his content. He has since decided to post on his second channel, SuperLuigiLogan, as it has not been demonetized yet.
Logan was born on November 17, 1994, in Pensacola, Florida to Kelly Fay Thirtyacre and a woman named Jennifer. His father was a truck driver by profession. Logan mentioned in his ‘Draw My Life’ video that because of his profession, his father spent more time on the road than at home. When he was three years old, his parents divorced and his mother subsequently remarried. His stepfather, Brian Grant, introduced him to Mario. Logan has one older brother named Lance and a younger half-sister named Haleigh.
He has been in a relationship with Ladye Wanda “Chilly” Jimenez from a long time. She regularly features in Logan’s videos and portrays several characters in the SuperMarioLogan series. They reportedly broke up once but later got back together. Logan and Chilly reside together in Pensacola, Florida with her two siblings, Tito and Julian.
