Best Graduation Surprise YouTube Video: Will Warm Your Heart

One of our favorite topics here at OSM is YouTube viral videos and recent examples are a footballing wonder goal, a barking cat, a spinning motorcycle collision and some Michael Jackson tribute videos. Our latest video to share with you is one that will really warm your heart, as it’s the best graduation surprise ever.

The video shows a girl called Jessica at her graduation ceremony at California Polytechnic State University, San Luis, Bispo, and she had been very disappointed to learn that her brother, a serving U.S. marine in Afghanistan, would not make it home in time to attend the ceremony. When her name is called out and she makes her way forward she is taken to one side and the gathering are told that she has a brother still in Afghanistan.

When she looks across Jessica sees her brother Eric on stage and the moments of joy that follow are truly wonderful to see. As the audience whoops their approval and happiness at the reunion, brother and sister embrace in an uplifting and touching scene. I’m not ashamed to say that my eyes welled up watching this. The video has already been viewed almost 100,000 times already.

Take a look at the video below this story and you can see what I mean. Have you ever had a joyful reunion when you least expected it? Share your experiences with us by sending us your comments.
