Son Hides All Over Airport Dressed As Waldo To Surprise Mom He Hasn’t Seen In 3 Years

Lindsey is from Florida and has worked in online and print media. Her happy place is Michaels craft store.

After I moved up north, I was unable to go home as often as I’d like. But, with the help of my big brother and his wife, I was able to successfully surprise my mom and dad with a visit. Nothing can compare to the absolute shock and joy they both felt when they saw me walk in the front door.

I’m thinking about doing it again — and may just use Ali’s idea!

Ali flew home, from Australia to London, after three years away. But he didn’t want to just show up at his parent’s front door. He wanted to do something more memorable for his mom, who had just celebrated her birthday.

With the help of his brother, Steve, and their dad, Ali dressed up as Waldo from Where’s Waldo? Where’s Wally? in the UK — and hid in the airport terminal while Steve picked up their parents.

As you’ll see in the video below, Ali runs all around the airport in his red and white striped outfit while his parents search for their surprise.

Finally, Mom spots a red and white hat in a cafe and is positive she’s found Waldo. What she doesn’t expect is to see her son Ali under the hat!

“What are you doing here?” she asked Ali, in complete shock.

Ali jumps up and gives his mom a huge hug. See the whole surprise in the clip below.
