For Their 60th Wedding Anniversary, This Couple Recreated The Theme In Pixar's 'Up'

Grab your tissues and let's do this.

Remember that opening scene from Pixar's Up, where the relationship between Carl and Ellie transpires right before your very tear-stained eyes? 

Of course you do, because it was the only time you ever started bawling within the first five minutes of a kid's movie. Plus, who could forget that heart-wrenching song playing in the background of the montage? 


Get ready to start crying all over again because one real life couple just paid homage to the movie. To celebrate their 60th anniversary together, two 80-year-olds recreated Carl and Ellie's theme song from the movie by playing a duet on the piano. The idea came from their grandson pianist Jason Lyle Black, who wrote the arrangement for them. 

"My grandparents were very excited to be part of this video," Black said on YouTube. "It was so fun to work with them on it. I've loved their piano duets ever since I was a little kid, so this will be a family treasure for all of us." 

Aside from the song, there are several references in the video to the Pixar film. 

Carl's tennis-ball cane is used by Black's grandfather.

Ellie's “Adventure Book” has a special place on the piano.

Black's grandfather is dressed just like Carl, in a tweed suit, bow tie and dark rimmed glasses.

The other obvious connection to the movie is the undeniable love the couple has for one another. Seriously, it's so cute it hurts.
