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.

What is in the water in the United States that compels people to walk around in their homes with their shoes on? Try doing that in South Korea––people would be so mortified. I have a sibling whose apartment is carpeted from wall to wall and who walks around inside with his shoes on all the time, tracking in any manner of dirt and dust from outside. Egad! I get chills just thinking about it. And as an American, it's something I've noticed people from other countries love to comment on.

We learned a lot more about things that are considered normal in other countries after Redditor monitonik asked the online community,

"What's normal in your country that's considered weird in others?"

The brain a fascinating part of the body. No, its the most fascinating.

Scientists have said for years that we'll never know all about the brain and its functions.

So if it is so fascinating and so capable and awesome... why does it stall? Why does it overload?

Why aren't we all gifted with photographic memory? The brain definitely has a full storage issue. And we all suffer.

Redditor u/MABAMA45 wanted everyone to fess up to and just embrace all the things the brain can't handle by asking:

What can your brain just not comprehend?

Going to college is an exciting experience. You meet new people, learn about the world and the inner workings of society, and make lasting friendships. As fun (and expensive *cough, cough*) as higher education can be there is a reason that only one-third of the US population 25 and older have been able to complete a four-year degree program. It is hard and burnout is real.

Going through university was filled with both happiness and sometimes tears for me. I loved school and found my classes interesting, dove into extracurriculars, and had that perfectionist drive to get all A's... totally not sustainable. It hit me I was totally burnt out about two years in while enrolled in an algebra class.
