Watch: Seniors Recreate Brokeback Mountain

Seniors Recreate Brokeback Mountain

You should know that this week marked 10 years since the theatrical release of Brokeback Mountain. It's been a decade since Heath spit in his palm for Jake. Does that make you feel old?

Getting on in years certainly hasn't stopped these gentlemen from reenacting the classic gay romance. With the help of a fabulous director, a green screen, and a trunk full of costumes and wigs, they performed a hilarious interpretation of the tearjerking "I wish I knew how to quit you" scene. It invokes an entirely different emotion when someone's grandfather is reading the lines.

The 'Scene-ior Citizens' of Tuesdays With Matthew, a volunteer program for senior citizens created by TV host Matthew Hoffman, frequently recreate iconic movie scenes. All proceeds from the views go to Matthew's local senior center and Meals on Wheels, a program that helps feed seniors in need.

Watch their hilarious reenactment of the scene below:
