In the Tweet for the video, Ryan said: "Rob and I kinda blacked out during this moment, but we'll somehow never forget it."

McElhenney shared the same video on his Twitter page, saying: "You can see something leave both of our bodies at the same time.

"And then we're filled back up with an indescribable amount of joy and gratitude."
