The lead guitarist plays the all-too familiar intro and everyone’s heart starts racing. The lead singer sings, “So no one told you life was gonna be this way.” We sing along. We snap our fingers and clap our hands. We are happy to be watching a Friends episode we’ve seen for the nth time.
If you’re anything like the millions of people who loved and still love the show, then this piece of news will thrill you.
