Note: “their early childhood years were spent in Angola and Mozambique, where their father was an engineer during the civil wars there”.
These two people look races apart and yet they’re brothers.
One looks like he’s related to Adam Sandler and the other looks like he is an Anglo-Celtic surfer dude.
They even look like a Ylvis.
“Ellen Blinkenberg reported that Vegard is of 99.3% European and 0.7% exotic ancestry”
Aren’t they siblings? That means they both have an “exotic” ancestry, except that it “shows” in Vegard more.
