Louis Tomlinson released a new music video for a song titled "Two of Us" yesterday, and it has his fans feeling some feels.

In the video, Louis Introduces 83-year-old Richard and the pair go about crossing off some of the items on Richard's bucket list.


Richard lost his wife to Alzheimer's in late 2016. Around the same time, Louis lost his mother to cancer.

Louis said on Twitter that he learned a lot from Richard, who he describes as a:

"fearless man who in light of tragedy still pushes himself to live with as much laughter and happiness as possible."

The video is structured more like a mini documentary, with "Two of Us" playing quietly in the background. The focus is really on Richard's story.

After talking about Richard's life up to now, the pair set off to do some of the more spectacular things on Richard's bucket list.

These included flying a helicopter, driving a race car, getting a tattoo (though he actually ended up adding his art to Louis' ink instead), and riding on a roller-coaster.

Louis was right by his side the whole time, and the pair seemed to be thoroughly enjoying the experiences.

The final event that Louis arranged was possibly the most special of the bunch.

Richard, in addition to other such jobs as taxi driver, an actor, and serving in the RAF, had also been a lounge singer until his wife's condition progressed to the point that she could not be left alone for long periods.

Tomlinson told Richard as they exited the roller-coaster that he had a little gig lined up for that evening and wanted Richard to come.

Little did Richard know that the "gig" was a sold-out arena performance.

Richard took to the stage and performed an excellent rendition of Andrea Bocelli's "Con Te Partirò" to raucous applause from the audience.

At the end of the video, Tomlinson tells Richard how much he enjoyed their time together.

"It's been lovely. I mean, honestly, no bullshit, actually spending real time with you and feeling like we're getting to know each other has been real nice."

You can view the whole music video, and it's amazing story, below:

Twitter was quite emotional after watching the video.





Many praised Louis and Richard for supporting each other.




Others were taking Louis and Richard's friendship as an example.




Some reminded folks that they can help by donating to Alzheimer's and cancer research.

True friendship can be found in unexpected places,and shared grief can being a deep understanding between people.

Allowing yourself to see others around you, regardless of age, can open up the opportunity get to know some amazing people.

Sometimes I think back to a teacher I had when I was a kid who demanded to know whether any of us were "raised in a barn" in response to crappy behavior. Namely littering. She hated littering. Can you blame her? It's a horrible habit and some people do it with no sense of shame. She dedicated much of her time to telling students to pick up after themselves and dispose of things properly. For that, I'm thankful.

But why didn't anyone else get the memo? The trash I see on the streets is obscene.

People had lots of thoughts to share after Redditor SneakyStriedker876 asked the online community,

"What seemingly uncivilized thing is commonplace in society?"

I love presents. I try to hide my enthusiasm, and I do my best to appease the greater public by saying "it's the thought that counts." But that is a WHOLE lie. I don't just love gifts, I love great gifts. And if you go rogue from my lists, please keep a receipt. It's just plain rude to divert from what the recipient has requested.

This thought process has emerged from experience. I have received some trash presents over the years and now I'm too old to pretend you just went crazy while shopping. Like... "do you even know me?!"

Redditor u/sulemannkhann wanted to hear all about the presents some of us have received that we prayed, came with a receipt, by asking:

What's the worst birthday gift you ever got?

I'm still on the fence about this whole extraterrestrial situation. I need more proof. Now I'm not naive enough to think that in this vast, endless universe only the human race exists. I just need proof, tangible, solid, didn't see it from my trailer through beer goggles proof.

I also need proof about the afterlife, another out there topic. Truth be told, I've never been that into this whole conversation. I've got enough daily problems on this planet, let alone worrying about making Will Smith's biggest hits into documentaries and not just popcorn/comedy space farce.

But let's compare thoughts...

Redditor u/ValencikHannibal197 wanted to discuss life beyond this planet, what do we really think? They asked:

What's the best theory on UFOs or aliens you've ever heard??
