The video is the first batch of a new animated series for PBS based off of the NPR project, StoryCorps. According to their site, StoryCorps' aim is "to provide Americans of all backgrounds and beliefs with the opportunity to record, share, and preserve the stories of our lives," and "is one of the largest oral history projects of its kind, and millions listen to our broadcasts on public radio and the web."

The silly animation may catch you off guard at first, but dear god, keep watching. It follows Danny and Annie, a married couple from Brooklyn that were together for twenty-five years. Within five minutes, the couple goes on their first date, marry, grow old together, and get sick together. Try not to cry.
