You can never have too many friends, even if there are 13 million and even if some don’t get your jokes. That might be what Jimmy Kimmel is thinking, whose YouTube “Friends” reunion skit featuring Jennifer Aniston, Lisa Kudrow and Courteney Cox received 13 million hits in its first five days. It is now number 3 on Jimmy Kimmel’s most viewed YouTube videos behind a Halloween sketch from 2013 and one of celebrities reading mean tweets.
With that many viewers, not all are likely to get the humor, and the video created some confusion. Jennifer Anniston refused to wear the wig in the style of her character Rachel’s hairstyle.
In his monologue, Kimmel said, “We were clearly acting, right? For some reason half, if not more, of the viewers commenting seemed to think it was real. I’m not kidding.”
