Much more wholesome with sound.

Right before he hugs the brother you hear the TV yell LETS GO! Perfect timing

I agree, it was a little difficult to hear him read the card

If I would make such an important present, I would for sure turn off the tv. I guess different country, different habits.

Background tv drives me absolutely crazy. I’ll never understand homes that just always have it on, even at important moments like this.

I'm used to have it always on even if there's no one to watch it. I just don't like complete silence in the house.

I get that, but why keep it on when there are real people to talk to?

Devil's advocate because it's not one of my habits, but I guess if you get used to having it in all the time when you're alone, eventually you just do notice it. If the visitors have the same habit then I can see how no one would notice.

My parents never have any sort of family gathering without the TV on. And since my dad is practically deaf, they keep the volume at an incredibly obnoxious level. This might explain why I rarely watch TV

it's more American if you have the sound of the TV in the background too.

especially chrismas eve football

Made me tear up

As a 26 yo male with a younger brother, that destroyed me

i'm not crying, you're crying

I'm not cr... hey, you're right. I AM crying.

That was the most heartfelt "I dropped my gum" that I've ever heard.

When a regular hug isn't enough so you put some sway in it

I love the way they start swaying from side to side as they hug. Touching..

That's the sign of an emotional, real, can't let go, hug. So much energy it cant be absorbed in just the hug.

I am so sorry for your loss. It's as if you lost him once only to lose him again. I hope you're doing well.

I could go on and on about him, but i'm just a random person on the internet, so my stories probably don't matter to people who i'll never meet

No, they matter. You never know who you will touch with your story..someone who has been down a similar a path. Maybe an addict who miss his brother, or a son who misses his parents.

Or maybe it's helped you just to talk about it. Chin Up my friend..

I'm not crying, you're crying...

Yeah, I'm crying.

Totally crying

shut yo sensitive ass up

nvm i just cried

My eyes are just a little sweaty today.

I think my allergies are acting up

I’m making a lasagnaaaaa.... for one

I'm a mess... so wonderful

Not crying, moisturizing my eyes is all.

No you

😭🤧 yeah. I'm totally crying.

I'm crying

Skadaddy is that you?

Yup I am

I wish I had a brother, my sister gets a brother.

Why, do you need a kidney?

I feel ya, man. But how come you get a sister and your sister doesn't? (Assuming no other sisters)

Sign up for organ donation and let your relatives know. It's sad that we don't have enough organs for everyone who needs them.

We really have more than enough, but so damned many go to waste.

My siblings didnt want to give me their kiddney, the excuse was "I need it if my kids get sick"

My kidney failure can only affect me in the family because of dna.

So this warms me so much that families like this exist. ❤️

What? Did you ever find a donor?

Yes! I got My kidney 2001.

Nope. U ded. F.

No reply. He ded.

Only ded was donor.

This summer is the 10 year anniversary of when my Mom donated a kidney to my dad. They are both in great health and we couldn't be happier. Here's to hoping these brothers get to enjoy one another for years and years to come!

Bros Being Human

Aw man that's awesome. I have a half brother who's just hitting college and we have about 12 years difference between us. We're family, and we're kind of close. But I've always felt like we never really connected like other pairs of siblings I've seen growing up. Eh, the age gap and not living together I guess will do that. I hope we become closer as time rolls on.

Me and my half brother are 18 years apart so he has always been kind of like a brother but kind of like a father figure. It will never be like a typical sibling relationship but that doesn’t make him less my brother, or the bond less strong. I’m not saying it’s easy but just keep hoping and keep working towards getting closer and know that no matter what, he is your brother and no age gap can diminish that! 🙂

I'm getting married tomorrow <3

Makes me happy and sad seeing this. Happy for them and extremely touching. Sad because I truly feel my brother wouldn't do this for me if I was in a similar situation. None the less I would do it for him.

Bro drop me a kidney real quick ??

How do you wrap one of those?

I thought you were takin' a picture!

I'm takin' a picture, go ahead.

Smartphones have revolutionized home movies, man. People can complain about vertical videos all they like, but home movies were goddamn impossible in some families.

Should be labeled NSFW. I'm at my desk trying to hide my tears.

I always get the best gift ideas from Reddit. Thanks guys, that's one less name on the Christmas list.

furiously throws wrapped coffee mug at the wall DAMNIT, I THOUGHT WE AGREED ON A $20 LIMIT!

When I see this, I think of how lucky some people are to be so close to their family members. My own family is riddled with mental illness and very rigid social interactions. Everything is held back beneath a thin veneer of politeness—masking the discomfort and anxiety, like a perpetual game of emotional-chicken. Good for these guys.

Just trying to get rid of this pesky conjunctivitis...

A couple of drops of pain water just leaked from my eyes, gotta get that checked

Follow up? How'd the surgery go?

They are litterally being bros, amazing.

Bros being bros

Fuck! This literally made my eyes water

I’m damn near crying

That hug..!

Well shit, now I'm trying to refrain from bursting out in tears at work.

My co workers must think I'm crazy.

A bro being a bro




This is very cool. I have a wonderful little bro and you bet your ass if he needed a kidney and I could give it I would. Brother bonds are real tight. Especially when you are close in age. Which it looks like these guys are. The hug says most of it.

They're literally being bros

I cried, thank you for the post.

I’d do this for either of my brothers. Oh great, now I miss them. :,(

I know we joke around a lot here but legit just made me cry, at my desk at the office thank you for sharing this.

I love that as soon as he reads that he’s getting the kidney, the guy on the tv throws his arms in the air, almost as if in celebration

We need a “will make you cry at work” tag.

I love the slow dance of Brotherly happiness and solidarity at the end.


The epitome of a bro hug.

I'm glad I saw this on r/wholesomegifs first since the title doesn't spoil the surprise.

I hate onions

I have two sons and another on the way. The two already out of the womb are best friends, and I hope they stay close into adulthood as well like these guys, and bring their baby brother into the fold once he makes his escape. This must have been a very proud moment for their parents!

I think someone's cutting onions off in the distance.....

i am. sry.

Where did all these fucking onions come from

Yea good luck trying to top that nest year

Not just humans being bros, this is brosbeingbros

Everyones presents after that much,thanks grandma. You go me socks

Fuck... that was actually really touching.

Happy to admit this made me cry

I teared up at that hug

Who’s cutting onions? Making me tear up lol

He should of got up and gave him a nipple cripple.

I'm not crying, you're crying!

I want to get off this feels train, please.


I think it might be Christmas not birthday because of Christmas tree

Plot twist: He didn't need a kidney

I was really hoping the kidney would be stapled to the inside of the folder or something like “yeah, here you go”

I'm not crying, you're crying!

Someone cutting onions around?

I tried my hardest to not cry. Guess who's sobbing?

Shut up, you're the one crying.

The room i’m in just filled with dust

Im not crying at work. . . .


This hit me so hard in the feels

The card and surprise don't lessen the gesture at all mate.

I can see the argument of the filming but I'm assuming they're doing that so that he can look back on this moment in the future.

Perhaps not. I suppose it might just be personal preference that makes me feel that way. The gesture of giving your brother your kidney is selfless and truly wholesome, I think maybe I just have social anxiety

Hey man, if you need help don’t be afraid to ask for it :)

Thanks bro that's really wholesome.

You too! You are cared for and you matter.

I agree with you. Also I think it's kinda weird to present this as a "gift". It's not even about the brother deciding to donate, it's about him finding out they're compatible. What decent sibling wouldn't go through with this?

Damn onion ninjas

God damnit! Who is chopping onions?

Damn these tears coming out of my eyes...Those onion cutting ninjas are in my room again...

The downside of making onion soup is that it stings my eyes.
