Bus Brother: Teen surprises younger sibling with wild outfits at bus stop every day

A 17-year-old Louisiana boy who wears outrageous, elaborate costumes to greet his younger brother at the bus stop each day has gone viral.

Noah Tingle, a senior at Central High School, has made a habit of "embarrassing" his little brother, 12-year-old Max, after school as the 7th-grader hops off the school bus in front of their family home in Central, La. 

Every day since Aug. 13, Noah, with the help of his family, has filmed himself greeting Max dressed as a football player, a gorilla, Santa Claus and even Chewbacca. 

Max's reaction to his brother's antics vary from delighted to downright embarrassed, and the two often chase each other around the front yard before eventually embracing.

Noah's project became so popular among friends that he created a Facebook page called “The Bus Brother," where he shares clips of his daily costumes.

Since Saturday, when the page was created, it has racked up more than 6,000 likes.

Noah told WAFB that his newfound fame has come with some perks — since he and his brother went viral, he says he's received costume donations from neighbors, fans and community members wanting to keep the adorable tradition going all year. 

As for the inspiration behind the silly project? Noah says he was motivated simply by love for his younger sibling

"We get our haircuts together and ride to church and practices together," Noah told WTTG. "He is my little brother and best friend all rolled up in one person."
