It’s 2019 and by now I feel like it would be easier to count the number of people who are not aware of the sitcom F.R.I.E.N.D.S. It is almost impossible to steer clear from the show because it has been etched into pop culture history in the form of everyday references. It has a cult following from all over the world and at this point, it’s more of an escape that fans keep going back to. But today, we’ve got some exciting (not to mention exclusive) news for all you F.R.I.E.N.D.S fans. The sitcom is turning 25 years old on 22nd September 2019 and Comedy Central and Warner Bros Studios have decided to treat fans around the world.
For the monumental day, the studio will be recreating the iconic Central Perk coffee house couch that we are so used to seeing Monica Geller, Chandler Bing, Pheobe Buffay, Joey Tribbiani, Rachel Greene and Ross Geller chit chat on during the 10 seasons of the show. The studio will be making 105 replicas of the couch and Comedy Central is bringing one of them to India!
Yup, you heard it right!
The couch will arrive in Mumbai on the 23rd of August and will be seen in multiple locations around the city probably in the form of pop up shops in malls or other hot localities for fans to visit and take pictures. The couch will also be travelling to Delhi for the same.
Meanwhile, Warner Bros is setting up a huge pop-up event in New York for a month-long celebration. Comedy Central will also be hosting a contest that will select lucky winners who can fly to New York to experience the event with all the fanfare.
How amazing, does that sound?! Keep your eyes peeled for more details on the couch and the pop shop that’ll be coming to India on MissMalini.com!
