Jackie Chan's action movies make us jump out of suspense or make us explode with laughter but this beautiful moment he shared with his stunt team had us in tears.
KAMI spotted this youtube video of Jackie Chan’s stunt team honoring the actor in an emotional video, detailing fond memories they had of the star.
The clip was shown to Chan onstage during a Chinese TV show segment.
Just as JC is overwhelmed by their recorded vdeo messages, they sneaked up behind Chan and surprised him.
The moment, which was shared on Facebook late last month, has gone viral with more than 9 million views and a whole lotta ugly crying from anyone who’s seen it.
Chan, who is watching the video with newer members of his stunt team, speaks to the studio audience about how he misses his original “brothers,” since he hasn’t seen them for some time.
But at the 5:02 mark, he turns around, only to be shocked with the sight of his old crew before him, ecstatic to be reunited.
And of course, comes the emotional reunion.
The appreciation that the JC Stunt Team has for the star mirrors the admiration that so many Asian-Americans, who’ve grown up watching his movies, feel for Chan.
The star broke barriers as a Chinese actor in Hollywood, where few Asians are cast in speaking roles, let alone given lead roles.
And last year, he solidified his place as a trailblazer when he was awarded an honorary Oscar, becoming the first Chinese actor in history to do so.
