Location: Run Forrest, Run!", a famous quote and quite famous place! You can clearly see the Monument Valley Area with the beautiful red sand and stones. It is a very long road in Arizona and really hot out there…and it was October ๐Ÿ˜… The silhouette of the huge rocks in the background is exactly the same, only the sign is new ๐Ÿ˜ƒ . . Clothes: We didn't have a cap like Forrest. So Judith draw the company logo ๐Ÿ˜ The jacket was from a friend. Thanks to @anubis.hes and sorry for sweating. It was very hot ๐Ÿ˜… . .

The couple traveled to the U.S. last year to remake the “Run Forrest Run” scene from “Forrest Gump.” Lachhein took on the title role, originally portrayed by Tom Hanks, wearing a similar hat and jacket. The photo was snapped on location at Monument Valley in Arizona. They even recruited a few people in the area to serve as the crowd standing behind Forrest in the shot. 

Schneider and Lachhein had been doing the project for years before they shared it with others. 

“This is our hobby,” Schneider told Insider. “We just did it because it’s a lot of fun. But after four or five years, we realized that everybody looking at our pictures is laughing a lot and having fun, so we decided to publish them on Instagram.”

Mockingjay” from “The Hunger Games” franchise starring Jennifer Lawrence also got a shout out from the duo. Schneider posed as character Katniss Everdeen during a fight with Snow’s troops. The shot was filmed in a Berlin metro station. 

Other recreations include “Lala Land,” “Pretty Woman” and “Game of Thrones.” They’ve managed to keep the hobby up so long because the pair usually saves it for vacations.

“We want to visit the country and want to see great sightseeing spots,”ย Lachhein told Insider. “The cool part of this hobby is that we don’t just visit sightseeing spots where everyone in the country is, we see spots where movies are filmed, which are so much cooler.”
