Friends Rebooted

We heard the popular 90's sitcoms was getting a reboot and we couldn't wait to catch the preview!

But if you’re waiting for Rachel , Monica or Joey to make an appearance, you’ll be waiting for a while.

This is Friends on another level. The people over at Nerdist decided to see what Friends would be like if it were set in the present.  The result is an awesome parody video that makes fun of current society and social circles.

The friends are seen decked out in modern attire and the latest fashion trends such as beards for guys, floppy hats that todays’ women favour so much and, of course, our ever present gadgets.

About Friends

The sitcom was about 20 something Rachel Green (Jennifer Aniston), who walked away from the alter  and joined her childhood friend Monica Geller (Courteney Cox) and her group of single friends, actor Joey Tribbiani (Matt LeBlanc), business professional Chandler Bing ( Matthew Perry), masseuse and musician Phoebe Buffay (Lisa Kudrow), and newly divorced paleontologist Ross Geller (David Schwimmer), Monica’s older brother. Rachel works as a waitress at  Central Perk a coffee shop, a central point throughout the series’ duration.
