Remember that video clip about those English dudes who were reunited with the baby lion they raised, and remember how that clip made you cry? Well, there's a longer clip that contains the full story and additional footage, and, because it's set to Whitney Houston singing "I Will Always Love You," it will now fucking make you sob:

  1. Peter Varvel Said,

    The youtube poster should've used Dolly Parton's original recording because it was happy "laughter through tears," for me (her favorite emotion, as she says in Steel Magnolias).
    Thanks for sharing the extended version of this clip.


  2. I wish someone would interview those two guys. I want to hear from them, how awesome that experience must have been and what they went through to get to that point.


  3. Madley Said,

    First time I saw (non-music version) I was afraid I was watching a snuff film...

    This time even though I knew what was coming I still had to brace myself.

    And yes, softie me wept. As predicted.


  4. golfwidow Said,

    I don't think the original version had him showing them to his mate, because that's where I lost it this time around.


  5. Marisela Said,

    Holy crap...I almost did cry. Damn Whitney!


  6. Marisela, you ALMOST cried? Damn, you're a tough one to crack. Just look it all the softies above you!


  7. Tacky Said,

    I can say with absolute certainty that this is the best thing I've ever seen.
