Someone grab a cartoonishly large spatula to scrape me off the floor, where I’m helplessly splayed after watching Doug Locke’s video for “#ThisCouldBeUs.”

The only thing I love more than a young hot gay couple is an old adorable gay couple, and Locke is serving me both as a pair of star-crossed lovers reunite 45 years after a memorable tryst in the summer of ’69.

“We all have those former loves that, while life may have lead us in different directions, we find ourselves reminiscing over, daydreaming about what could have been,” Locke told HuffPo in a statement. “I’m a firm believer that once you give a person a piece of your heart, you never truly get it back.”

And that’s why you always ask for the receipts, kids. Check out an artfully-executed intergenerational, interracial gay romance unfold in under four minutes in Doug Locke’s “#ThisCouldBeUs” below:
