The Saddest Scene In Movie History (According To Science)

Scientists trying to identify film clips that could “reliably elicit a strong emotional response” in the lab spent years testing hundreds of different clips on subjects only to discover that the secret lay in a young Ricky Schroder.

So anyway, this is (officially and scientifically) the saddest scene in any movie ever. It’s from 1979’s The Champ and it has spoilers. Spoiler #1: It’s sad as fuck. Add yours if you can think of something sadder. Are we going to let those meddling scientists tell us when to cry? Hell no.
