It’s a video that indicates romance isn’t dead, and it looks to have captivated the hearts of almost 60 million internet users.
The touching footage was shot in stealth at the Van Nuys Flyaway at Los Angeles International Airport and depicts a well-dressed elderly guy waiting for his wife.
He stands awkwardly by his side, one hand clutching a card, like an adolescent on a first date.
While waiting for his companion to come on the shuttle bus from LAX airport, he holds a large bouquet of flowers out in front of him with the other hand.
When he sees his other half arriving, he breaks into a big smile and extends his arms to meet her.
As the man reaches in to kiss his female buddy before pulling her in for a cuddle, the video maker, a YouTube user going by the name Valerie Jane, can be heard expressing her happiness.
The couple kisses for about ten seconds before unlocking their arms and kissing each other again.
The man then presents his other half with a bouquet of flowers and a note, before kissing her one last time to seal the deal.
When the man saw his other half, a smile came on his face, and he stepped in to kiss her.
The 30-second video has been seen over 60 million times since it first appeared on the internet.
‘As I was waiting to board the bus at Van Nuys Flyaway, I noticed this old man standing with roses and chocolates in his hand, waiting for his wife to arrive from the airport,’ YouTube user Valerie wrote in her original description for the footage.
‘This depicts the pinnacle of love.’ My heart melted, demonstrating that this type of love exists. Hopefully, the two wonderful persons in the video will notice.’
However, the identity of the beautiful pair involved is unknown.
Later, the charming man released go of his wife and handed her the card and a bouquet of flowers.
