These Siblings Recreated Their Childhood Photos And The Results Are Hilariously Cringeworthy


Sometimes it’s better to lock your childhood photos away in a box and bury it deep underground. Why? Because, let’s face it, no-one wants to see that terrible bowl cut your dad gave you, or that permanently snotty nose that you never thought to wipe, or that multi-coloured frock that you once loved but now makes you want to cry. Stash those photos away like the rest of us and pretend you only began to exist in this world from the age of seventeen. 

Or you could be like The Luxton Brothers.

These two siblings have decided to embrace their younger years – snotty noses and all – in a laugh-out-loud re-creation of their childhood photos, recently posted on their Tumblr blog ‘Then/Now‘. The brothers enlisted the help of their dad, uncle and dog in order to achieve complete accuracy when it came to re-capturing the details; going on to gift the hilarious compilation to their mother as a Christmas calendar.




This premise has been tackled many times before, and the popularity of The Luxton Brothers’ blog has caused a few classics to resurface – as well as some inspired new ones. So, in no particular order, here are the best of the bunch:

Have you got any embarrassing childhood photos that you think could be re-created? Why not join the trend and try?

Or you could just bury them in that box I mentioned earlier. Just sayin’.
