It’s been 26 years since Ross said ‘Hiiiiii’ for the first time to his group of FRIENDS in the pilot episode. 22nd September 22nd 1994 is the date when the first episode ‘The One Where Monica Gets A Roommate’ aired for the first time. Since then, along with the yearly jump of the cast’s salary, its fan base also jumped with time.
It’s now considered as a classic and is an all-time classic for many out there. It has received its fair share of criticism as well, and fan-clubs of other shows have spoken against it. But, the monumental amount of fan-base it has achieved over the years is unmatchable.
An Instagram handle posted a video celebrating the 26 years of FRIENDS. A fair warning for all the fans, keep the tissues handy before watching the video.
Here’s the video:
