It seems that most people over the weekend were looking to watch a good sob story. The latest ‘blubberer’ to hit the big screen –‘The Fault in Our Stars’: about two teenagers with cancer who fall in love — made 48 million in its opening weekend. The flick could very well win the award for ‘saddest movie of the year’, but in comparison to the gleaming pile of misery found on the internet, sitting through The Fault in Our Stars is a walk in the park.
The last decade has seen numerous tear jerking moments that have been caught on camera and immediately uploaded to YouTube for your… pleasure? Here’s proof of what I mean: Below is a definitive list of the saddest, most heart wrenching things ever seen on the ‘World Wide Web’. I bet you can’t make it through the list of videos without shedding at least one tear.
Do you think you have what it takes to keep floodgates closed? I dare you to try… just grab some tissue before you start.
