YouTuber’s Grandparents Celebrate Anniversary with Adorable Piano Duet of Music from Pixar’s Up
In the mood for a full-body sob that feels as melancholy as it is life-affirming? Check out this awesome video that YouTuber Jason Lyle Black made of his 80+ year old grandparents playing music from the film, Up.
He coordinated the video to help them celebrate their 60th wedding anniversary, and clearly the video was so lovingly done. Not only that, but it’s quite detailed and includes lots of references to the film. I mean, the opening shot of the house is perfect. There’s an adventure book, a cane decked out in tennis balls, and even a dog reacting to “Squirrel!”
But what really makes it special are the personal touches from this couple’s lives — the photos, the fact that they’ve always played piano duets together. Black placed some great facts on the video in its YouTube description:
SOME MORE FUN FACTS:
-The piano they are playing is an antique Civil War-era Steinway that my grandpa restored
-My grandparents had a very large family – 9 children, and I’m one of a few dozen grandchildren
-My grandparents lived in Africa for a year and a half, in their 70s, while serving as missionaries for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints
-My grandparents are very involved in family history. My grandpa wrote an autobiography for our family and my grandma wrote a biography of her father, my great-grandpa.
-On Sunday night (the night before we released this video), we got the cousins/aunts/uncles together at my grandparents’ house and had our own “Family Premiere” and Grandma made cookies!
-My grandparents are age 83 and 84
What a lovely homage to a life well-lived and a beautiful love. Since it kinda feels like they’re the Internet’s grandparents now, happy anniversary, Grandma and Grandpa!
