FRIENDS will celebrate it’s 26th birthday this year while I will have my first quarter-life crisis.
I know this pandemic is sucking the life out of our already dreadful existence, but we have to make it out alive. Ya alright, we won’t have a summer 2020, but we’re kicking Corona in the butt and celebrating the 26th anniversary of our favorite TV show FRIENDS.
We’ve all gone back to watching and re-watching the entire series during this horrifying period. It brings back the joy that we’ve been deprived of in the last couple of weeks.
Anyway, to celebrate the big day, let’s take a look at our favorite ensemble in their before and after avatars.

Anyway, Jennifer is one of the top actresses of our time. Recently, she swiped all the awards for her acting on the hit series The Morning Show.
