James Cameron's Oscar-winning drama Titanic turned 20 years old a few weeks ago, but we'll forgive classical music duo 2Cellos for showing up a little late with their music video tribute to the movie's theme, considering how much time clearly went into it.

Cellists Luka Sulic and Stjepan Hauser are known for their instrumental covers of both popular songs such as "Despacito," and epic soundtracks such as Game of Thrones. Their cover of "My Heart Will Go On," famously performed by Celine Dion, appears on the duo's 2017 album Score and features the London Symphony Orchestra.


The official video for the cover is almost as cinematic as the movie that inspired it. It begins with shots of a sunken ship, with the musicians' cellos appearing with the wreckage. Sulic and Hauser first play the song's somber notes amid an icy landscape, but as the tune gets more and more dramatic, they're depicted underwater. 

While watching, one can't help but be reminded of the heartrending (and true) moment the Titanic's musicians chose to keep playing as the ship went down. The video's two locales are eventually connected in an emotional climax, with a final shot tying it in with the movie's plot.
