Lewis Capaldi has been leaving his fans in tears with his latest release. The Glasgow-born singer’s official music video for his newest single ‘Wish you the Best’ was released earlier this month, leading to many of his fans posting their heartbroken reactions on TikTok and Twitter. 

With over 12 million views, many of Capaldi's fans have taken to social media to share their reactions, resulting in an emerging TikTok trend.

Fans have taken to social media to share their reactions from watching the video, leaving Capaldi to dub himself the ‘Prince of Pain’ and to react back, in one response saying: "I am now making children cry."

Why is the video so emotional? 

The clip follows an older postman, John (played by Harry Potter star David Bradley) and his loyal dog, Willow, as they live their day-to-day lives. After John passes away, Willow is seen mourning by John’s grave. Willow is eventually taken in by a younger postman (played by Tom Lewis - featured in Gentleman Jack) who finds her and keeps her until she is reunited with John. 

The music video has 14 million views and is trending at number 5 for music at the time of writing. The music video can be viewed here on YouTube via Lewis Capaldi's channel.

In one video, Hien Pham (@heyitspham) said: "If you want to be OK ever again, don't go watch Lewis Capaldi's new music video. And if you have a dog, don't watch it" whilst in tears. Other users filmed their reactions to the video and were also left crying.

Lewis Capaldi himself duetted the videos on TikTok, simply filming his face with a grin at people's emotional reactions. In the caption, he said: "I am the prince of pain".

In other reactions, Capaldi writes: “Really taking pleasure in making these people weep. I don’t know what that says about me as a person.” Comments read: “I love the song but refuse to watch the video based on these reactions lol.” Another said: “I immediately saw a dog and an old man and noped right out of it."

“This is sadder than any John Lewis advert,” added another.
