A few days ago, TV host Jimmy Kimmel decided to feature some of our all-time favourite TV characters, Rachel, Phoebe, and Monica on his show, “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”
Yes, F.R.I.E.N.D.S stars Jennifer Aniston, Lisa Kudrow, and Courtney Cox reunited briefly on Jimmy’s show to perform what appears to be terrible fan fiction. But it was all in good humour and perhaps not many people can appreciate it. Because Jimmy is now receiving flak from both viewers as well as F.R.I.E.N.D.S fans. It was largely due to the fact that many people thought that Lisa Kudrow and Courtney Cox “didn’t want to be there” and that Jennifer Aniston wasn’t really in on the joke for the skit.
So much so that Jimmy had to stress that she was.
Jimmy asked his audience the next day, “We were clearly acting, right? For some reason, maybe half, if not more of the people commenting online, seem to think that was real. I’m not kidding.” He then proceeded to read examples of online commenters who were positive that Jennifer Aniston was genuinely furious but for some reason completely unaware that the skit was going to happen.
There were YouTube comments such as these:
In the skit, the 3 actresses pretended to be confused and annoyed at they read Jimmy’s “fan fiction”, which revolved around Ross (played by Jimmy Kimmel) making love to Rachel.
Watch the very convincing fake annoyed performance here:
“She was acting. Apparently very well, too. She should probably get an Emmy. I’m puzzled by this, I have to say. It’s weird. 99 percent of the time you put something on YouTube, everyone jumps in to say its fake. Then we put something that is – I thought – obviously fake, and people think it’s real”, Jimmy Kimmel said. Aww..poor dude!
What do you guys think though? Did you like the skit? Did you not?
