If the Disney-Pixar's Up wasn't enough of a tear-jerker, try to get through this couple celebrating their 60th anniversary by re-creating parts of it without bawling. Go ahead, I dare you. If you can watch the video in its entirety and not shed one tear, then you're made of stone. Personally, I couldn't get through the first 30 seconds before the tears and snot started making their way down my face. If you're at all familiar with the pretty much established classic Up (which you should be, if you have a soul), then you can understand the sentiment behind this adorable old couple's recreation of the opening montage in the Pixar movie. There's a reason that days like Grandparents' Day exist: Old people are the adorable souls that give us something to hope for after long weekends of watered down drinks and headaches, especially when they're in love.
Here's the original opening montage from Up:
And here's the real-life couple (whose names I can't find anywhere. Holler at me if these cute-ass grandparents belong to you so I can put their names in here):
Let's go on an emotional journey through this video, and hold onto one another for support as we weather the cascading feels as they break upon us. Because Up is nothing if not an emotional ride and we should expect nothing less from this video.
Not only is he carefully prepping the piano for the surprise duet with his wife, but "Carl" is also setting out one of the first links to Up. But in this version, we have an adorable photo of this couple, one from their younger years, made to really pull at the heart strings.
Be right back, still sobbing. How can a couple who has been together for 60 years still be this loving? The seemingly small gesture of resting her head on her husband's shoulder is one of those subtle things that tells you how incredibly close and comfortable two people in a relationship really are.
When she joins him at the piano... are you kidding me?! And she just slides onto the bench beside him and he's obviously so happy to have a partner with him. And the way she sort of smiles as they lock eyes, when she first sits down. Could they be more in love? Watching these grandparents-turned-real-life-Up-adorableness, you can see the adoration and still insanely strong love they feel for each other. It's almost like we're intruding on them, as they grin at each other as only two people totally enamored with each other could do.
