Older Brother Wears Hilarious Costumes To Greet Younger Brother After School
Worried that his younger brother was suffering from the back-to-school blues, Louisiana teenager Noah Tingle knew he had to do something to brighten his brother’s day. In August 2019, when his younger brother stepped off the school bus, he was greeted with his brother dressed in hilarious costumes.
Fighting The Back-To-School Blues
People enjoy the long summer months when they don’t have to go to school. So, when the new school year rolls back around, it can bring a lot of sadness. You have to get back on a schedule and complete homework or take exams. It’s unpleasant, but you can’t avoid school.
It helps to have fun, which is exactly what Noah Tingle decided to do for his 12-year-old brother, Max, after a long day of school. Every day, Noah dresses up in a different costume. He greets Max, surprising him with the new outfit. Max never knows what his brother will look like when he gets off the school bus.
Noah has waited for his brother dressed up in a variety of costumes, including a firefighter, Santa Claus, Batman, Chewbacca [from Star Wars], and a Louisiana State University football jersey. Noah might have wanted to cheer up his brother, but he also wanted to tease him in front of his friends. He remarked, “It’s my last year of high school and I saw he was coming off the bus when I was home, so I just want to embarrass him.”
Getting Facebook Famous
Noah doesn’t let the weather ruin his plans. If it’s raining, he still greets Max after a long school day, perhaps donning an umbrella. He’s outside, ready to tease and hug his brother. But originally, Max didn’t look forward to seeing his older brother’s crazy antics. He said, “At first, I was surprised and kind of embarrassed. But now, I’m just used to it.”
The costumes greeting gained enough laughs from the bus driver and Max’s fellow classmates that Tingle’s mother decided to start a Facebook page, effectively called “The Bus Brother,” to document the costumes. She films the greetings and the page has already gained 15,000 followers. People have commented on the posts, agreeing that Noah is a great older brother to willingly dress up in costumes just to put a smile on his younger brother’s face.
“It’s gotten a lot bigger than I thought I would ever be,” Noah said. “I thought I would keep it going but I was expecting it to kind of be, you know, something me, my friends, my family, and a few other people we want to kind of catch on. But for the amount of people that saw it and loved it, it was just crazy.” Thanks to the Facebook page, Noah’s friends and even strangers have donated costumes for Noah to wear. Because of the kind gesture, Noah is able to keep surprising his brother.
“I plan on doing this as long as possible,” he said. “Costumes are being donated but only time will tell if there will be enough for the whole school year.” Noah might not have enough costumes to keep the fun project going, but he’s eager to participate because he knows next year won’t be the same.
Leaving For College
Noah started this unique idea because he knows he won’t be able to see his brother come home from school next year when he’s away at college. So, he decided to make sure Max has plenty of good memories of his goofy brother. Noah added, “Knowing I’m going to college next year and won’t see him on a daily basis, I thought this would make things memorable and strengthen our bond as brothers.”
That shouldn’t be difficult, considering the playful bond they already demonstrate in their Facebook videos. “The Bus Brother” might not be as active next school year, but they’ll still be as strong as ever.
