Watch This Melodramatic Alternate “Titanic” Ending

When I heard there was an alternate ending made for "Titanic", my first thought was "oh good, they finally realized two people could easily fit on that wooden plank so Jack could survive!" but apparently James Cameron didn't see that as quite as big a priority as the fate of the Heart…
