The American sitcom Friends is one of the most watched television series of all time. The show was watched by people all over the world who were struck by its awesomeness. Now, even after 17 years, people have stuck with the show. The show made us laugh, showed us the realities of adulthood.
Long before the Netflix and Cold Age era, the show first aired in 1994. Interestingly, an advertisement for the show from the ’90s resurfaced, giving us major nostalgia. In the commercial, all of the cast, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry, Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, David Schwimmer, and Lisa Kudrow looked super young.
The page that shared the video claimed the ad was banned because the actors were wearing their underwear and jokingly suggested they were doing it to get more views. In the funny commercial, Courtney Cox was seen protesting to reduce herself to such tactics just for audience sake, but when she heard that the show was prime time, she asked with enthusiasm to Matt LeBlanc to unzip his dress.
Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry and David Schwimmer were seen wearing undershirts and boxers while Jennifer Aniston, Courtney Cox and Lisa Kudrow wore short nightgowns. Check out the ad below:
Recently, the special Reunion of Friends episode aired and managed to garner a lot of praise. While many were happy to see their favorite stars again together, some were not. People criticized the creators that none of the people of color who made cameos in the show’s 10 seasons had made it to Reunion.
Director Ben Winston recently touched on the issue during a conversation with Screen Rant. He said, “We have Malala, Mindy Kaling, BTS [the South Korean boy band]. There are three women from Ghana, one of whom tells how Friends saved her life. Two boys from Kenya. Three children in India. What do they want more diversity in this reunion? The cast is the cast. It was made in 1994. I think it’s remarkable how well it stands the test of time.
