You remember the opening of 'Up', when Disney Pixar proved once and for all that your emotions are their playthings and you were a crying wreck 10 minutes into the film? Well now there's an even more emotional version…

In case it's not seared on your memory, here's the opening sequence of 'Up'

Sorry for giving you all the emotions.

Michael Giacchino's music is a large part of the reason our heart is on the floor in tiny little pieces.


And now… meet the grandparents of YouTuber Jason Lyle Black, a YouTuber.

They’ve been together for 60 years

And throughout those six decades, they’ve always played piano duets together

So to mark the occasion Jason arranged Michael Giacchino’s music for ‘Up’ for piano duet and filmed his grandpa and grandma playing it together.

Just give us a moment, ok…
