An alternative Titanic ending has just gone viral and it is unintentionally hilarious.
The deleted scene is thought to have featured as bonus content on a DVD version of the blockbuster film released in 2005. It has somehow made its way onto Twitter and people can't stop talking about it.
The 1997 film follows the tragic love story of Rose (Kate Winslet) and Jack (Leonardo DiCaprio) onboard the Titanic boat. Rose is set to be married at the behest of her family but when she meets Jack, everything changes.
The story is told from the perspective of elderly Rose, who is on board a treasure hunting boat in search for a necklace gifted to her by Jack which has a rare diamond.
In the final scene that was used in the film, we discover that Rose had the necklace all along, and she throws it into the ocean so that it can be laid to rest with Jack. However, no-one saw Rose do this until this deleted scene was unearthed.
The deleted scene totally rewrites this aspect of the plot.
After revealing she has the necklace, Rose gives the necklace to Brock Lovett (Bill Paxton) who is happy to find what he's been looking for.
However, after looking into Rose's eyes he changes his mind for some unexplained reason and no longer sees the value in the necklace, after searching for it for three hours and 30 minutes - yep, that's the films running time by the way.
Instead Brock smiles as Rose takes the necklace from his hands and with the most gentle flick of the wrist, throws it into the ocean. It's even more ridiculous than the original, final version.
One Twitter user noticed that Gloria Stewart - the actress who plays elderly Rose - makes the same "squeak" noise when she throws the necklace into the ocean. "The squeak she makes when she throws it overboard," they wrote, with the laughing-crying emoji.
Another person replied: "For reasons that escape me, that's the one part of this that made it into the final version."
Last month another hilariously awkward deleted scene went viral, which saw the passengers on the ship come face to face with the iceberg.
While those walking on the decks were left astonished by the huge sheet of ice as the ship passes by, the scene cuts to unwitting passenger Molly Brown, played by Kathy Bates, enjoying a drink in the ship's restaurant before she makes an unfortunate comment.
"Hey sonny! How about a little ice?" she asks a waiter, while the iceberg appears ominously in the background.
James Cameron's Titanic is the gift that keeps on giving.
