Grab a tissue — this supercut of Pixar emotions will wreck you in the best way
Emotional puppet-master Lindsay McCutcheon edited together over six minutes of the most moving moments in Pixar movies and the result is heart-wrenching. She shared on Vimeo that she was inspired by the newest Pixar film Inside Out, which comes out June 19th (and stars Most Wonderful Human Amy Poehler voicing a personified feeling, Joy). The video’s caption reads, “Hope you like pop music and mush!” How did she know that is exactly what I like?
The video pulled footage from thirteen Pixar movies, including Toy Story 2 and 3, Monsters Inc., Finding Nemo, A Bug’s Life, and Up, which already has the power to make pretty much anyone cry within its first five minutes. First, McCutcheon stitched together sad and angry moments from the films, setting them to Sia’s “Breathe Me.” That song is so touching, and only gets more upsetting combined with glimpses of Nemo’s widowed dad finding his only child’s egg, Wall-E trying to cheer up Eve, and Ratatouille trapped in a cage.
Luckily, the second half of the video showcases some of Pixar’s most uplifting moments, scored to “You Know We Can’t Go Back “by Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds. These scenes focus on victories: The Incredibles kicking butt, Buzz Lightyear flying to infinity and beyond, and a group of furry monsters sharing a group hug. All of these moments would normally cause some serious smiling, but after that merciless first half, even the most joyous moments feel like tear-jerkers.
This video might be proof that no one should try to watch all the Pixar movies in a row, because … emotions! Check out the full masterpiece on Vimeo.
