Rain or shine, Noah Tingle greets his little brother at the bus stop every day after school, wearing a ridiculous costume each time.
Noah, 17, is a senior at Central High School in Central, Louisiana, and surprised his brother Max, 12, on the first day of school in early August. Wanting to give Max some fun memories before he goes to college next year, Noah decided to keep this up, and got creative, wearing a Santa outfit one day, a Chewbacca costume another. He's dressed up as a football player, Elvis, a gorilla, and a cowboy. It doesn't matter what costume Noah is wearing — as soon as Max is off the bus, he always gives him a big hug.
Max told WAFB he thought his brother was bizarre when he first started donning the wacky outfits, but "now, I think it's cool." Noah records all of the greetings, and posts them to a Facebook page called The Bus Brother. Followers love what he's doing, and have been donating costumes so he can surprise Max with a new outfit every day. Catherine Garcia
