    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.

    “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.
