The piece is soundtracked by the song "Married Life" which, like all good music, whenever you hear it you're immediately brought back to the magic of the scene. And now a couple, both in their 80s, decided it would be the perfect song to play as a duet to celebrate 60 years of marriage.

Their pair, grandparents to Jason Lyle Black a pianist himself who uploaded the video, have played duets on the piano together since they married back in 1955. The piano they're using for this rendition is a a restored, by the grandpa, antique Civil War-era Steinway.

Along with the music, and the pair's clothes, the video also pays homage to the movie using various props, including Carl's tennis-ball cane, the “Adventure Book,” and also a “Squirrel!” reaction from the family dog.

Black also makes an appearance at the end dressed in a “Wilderness Explorer” uniform, just like Russell in the movie.

Just in case your tears aren't running out of your eyes fast enough then here's a heartfelt reminder of married life with Carl and Ellie. Sob away, you've earned it.
