Finding it humorous, birthday boy Kevin Opos (second from the right), posted the photo series on Reddit with the caption "Best Buddies at 10, 17 and 29 years old." The post immediately went viral, not only because of the amusing photos themselves, but also out of respect for the impressive duration of their friendship.
"Good for you guys for sticking together," wrote one Redditor, admiringly. "It's hard to keep groups of friends together. As people grow up they usually grow apart."
