MUMBAI: Marking the milestone 25th anniversary of Friends, Comedy Central India is creating an unforgettable fan experience to celebrate one of the most-watched show on television history. As Janice would say “Oh. My. God!”  It’s been a quarter of a century since we first watched Rachel enter Central Perk in her wedding dress, while Monica, Phoebe, Ross, Chandler & Joey sat on the iconic orange couch. Finding comfort in the relatable characters and amusing storylines, millions of fans around the world continue to watch and re-watch the show over-and-over again.

“Despite the comedy’s emotional finale many years ago, Comedy Central has kept the connection with fans alive, while continuing to attract newer generations to this ageless show. Friends is one of the most revered shows in television history and we’re constantly piquing interest of fans through innovative programming, on-ground activities and social media banter, reinvigorating the spirit of the show in its huge fanbase.” commented, Ferzad Palia, Head – Youth, Music & English Entertainment, Viacom18.

Cherishing this bond, Comedy Central India takes the Anniversary celebration a few notches higher by rewarding the ‘Wackiest Friends Fan’ with a paid trip to New York and a visit to the sold-out Friends 25 Pop-Up Experience along with a friend. Recreating some of the most memorable moments from the show, the Friends 25 Pop-Up gives the show’s most ardent followers a peek into the lives of their favorite characters and their unforgettable scenes.

Can’t make it to New York? There’s something for everyone as Warner Bros. Television Group continues the 25th anniversary celebration of Friends with a comprehensive new free Friends 25 App. Curated with memorable quotes from the series, fun Friends-themed frames, stickers, and more, the app incorporates features such as AR (Augmented Reality) filters, trivia, wallpapers, recipes from the show (including the Moist Maker, Joey’s Meatball Sub & Phoebe’s cookies), custom frames and Photo Booth filters that fans can to add to their images. Available on Apple’s App Store and in the Google Play store, could it be any more fun?

But Central Perk is closer than you think, as Warner Bros. Television Group and Comedy Central India bring a specially created replica of the world-famous coffeehouse’s iconic orange couch to India, giving loyal fans a unique opportunity to re-enact and re-live the countless indelible moments from the show, all while having their very own Friends-style selfie moment.

Launching its tour in Mumbai, the couch will travel across cities nationwide.   Friends ­fans in India can determine its next stop through a poll on Comedy Central India’s official Twitter handle.
