Brother Photobombs Sibling At Graduation After Eight Years Apart

A brother flew from Chile to the U.S. to photobomb his brother’s graduation snaps and surprise him after eight years apart. As Carlos Pizarro, 24, initially looked at the photo his family had taken, he didn't recognize the figure standing in the background, holding up a peace sign with his fingers. But then, as everything clicked, Carlos looked closer and spotted his brother, Alexis, 38, who had flown to Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan, for his sibling's big day. As soon as Carlos set eyes on his brother, he immediately began to well up, heading over to Alexis for a tear-filled embrace nearly a decade in the making. According to the pair's sister, Jeanette, who captured the moment on video on May 7, it had been eight years since Alexis, who lives in Linares, Chile, had seen his brother. Carlos and the rest of the family live in the U.S., but for a number of years they could not return to Chile to visit Alexis because their green cards were processing. Once that process was over, however, they were then dealt the blow of the pandemic hitting, which made it impossible for Alexis to travel to see his brother, and vice versa. A reunion between the pair, Jeanette said, would be the perfect graduation gift, and so she and her parents liaised with Alexis about traveling up for his brother's College of Nursing graduation.
