An 8-year-old kid wrote a spec script for 'Friends,' and it features a monkey purse-snatcher and a giant rolling donut.
Ah, the "Mario Kart 64" opening. Classic sitcom trope.
Back in the '90s, when Friends was one of the most popular shows on television, a then-8-year-old redditor TerrMys and his school friends used to "play Friends" on the playground during school recess. (He was Ross, in case you're wondering.) One day, Li'l TerrMys decided that they needed a script to play off of, and this piece of genius was born. He explains: "Of course, I didn't know the show very well, so I drew a lot of inspiration from a show that I watched regularly with my dad - Seinfeld. Hence why all the plots seem to humorously intersect at the end of each episode."
You'll find some highlights below, Though, I will warn you: If you have a phobia of dangling from a balcony by your shoe and then landing on a humungous rolling donut, you might wanna skip it, and wait for an 8-year-old kid's version Merv Griffin Show spec script. That should be considerably less harrowing.
Oh, Rachel! What have you gotten yourself into this week?!
Phoebe and her 700 pounds of lipstick!
"Long live the mighty donut!" indeed!
Believe it or not, that's only the end of Act 1.
