In what is a surefire way to ruin someone's day, a YouTube user with way too much time on his hands has re-edited the ending of Pixar's "Toy Story 3," giving it a bleak and soul-crushing finale in which the toys seemingly die.
Warning: "Toy Story 3" spoilers to follow.
Anyone who has seen the third big screen adventure of Woody, Buzz, and the gang knows that the film is already a bit of a tearjerker. The slightly heavy climax of the movie sees the toys get trapped in an incinerator and essentially resign themselves to a horrible fiery death -- only to be rescued at the last second by "the claw." After their death-defying escape, the film ends with the playthings going on to a new life with a new child. The real ending is enough to evoke a tear or two, but at least the the toys don't get melted down.

YouTube user Justin Wallin's mother had never seen "Toy Story 3," so he decided to play a little prank on her by re-cutting the ending of the film. Just as the toys accept their fate, instead of escaping the incinerator, the screen fades to black and the credits start to roll.
It's an absolutely heartbreaking faux-ending to the movie, and it's made even more sad by hearing Wallin's mom's confused reaction to it. We're betting someone's getting sent to bed without dinner tonight.
