Military Dad Surprises Son on School Picture Day With Photobomb

A viral video shows the heartwarming father-son reunion.

Published April 21, 2015

A North Carolina third grader recently received a picture-perfect surprise on School Picture day, the Grio reports.

As the photographer took Joshua's picture, his father, Corporal James Bass, photobombed the scene — an unexpected gag considering Corp. Bass had been deployed overseas in Kuwait for a year.

Joshua wasn't aware that his father had returned from deployment, so Corp. Bass decided on a humorous reveal. The feel-good scene was captured in a video.

After taking Joshua's photograph, the photographer showed the young boy the picture he'd taken and asked him about the other person in the shot.

“Your dad?" the photographer said. "How’d he get in the picture?”

The photographer prompted Joshua to turn around to help him understand what was happening. What followed next was a heartwarming reunion.

"Daddy!" Joshua yelled, running to Corp. Bass for a bear hug.

After overcoming his initial shock, Joshua told his father, “You still got it.”
