So, I don’t know about you all. But, I recently learned that “Friends” is leaving Netflix very soon. As a matter of fact, we will no longer be able to listen to that catchy theme song “I’ll be there for you” when 2020 starts. Therefore, I thought it would be a good idea to re-watch the whole show before it’s too late.
And guess what? I binged all 10 seasons in just 3 weeks. Of course, all die-hard Friends fans know each and every one of the characters that act on this show. From Chandler and his sarcastic sense of humour, to Rachel and her stubbornness, to whether or not she and Ross were on a break. Indeed, many people grew up watching Friends.
And I think that I speak on behalf of millions of people when I say we’ve all been waiting for a Friends’ reunion. Well, it finally happened. Decades after the show came to an end, Aniston got reunited with the main cast of the show. And how do we know? Well…Instagram!
Jennifer Aniston Instagram – Friends’ Reunion
You see, Jennifer Aniston was one of the very few celebrities that didn’t have an Instagram account. At least, not an official one. But on October 15th 2019 the 50-year-old American actress decided to join the social media world and shock us all with the picture below.
All 6 members of one of the most popular shows in the ’90s were back together. And the internet just couldn’t stop talking about it. In a matter of days, Aniston’s Instagram account gained millions of followers. So much so that before the 2 week mark, the former Friends actress already had 16.1 million followers.
As a matter of fact, the impact Aniston had on Instagram was so big, that she even won a Guinness world record for the fastest time in reaching the 1 million followers mark (5 hours and 16 minutes).
As fascinating as it was seeing Aniston joining Instagram, her co-stars also received a lot of attention. You see, when Aniston decided to create an Instagram account, and post of a photo of a Friends cast reunion, people lost it.
Each of the show’s main characters went from growing 1000 followers a day to a whopping 500k followers in a matter of 24 hours. Well, everyone but Mathew Perry (the actor who played Chandler on the show) Hopefully, he will be the next person to join Instagram. What do you think?
