The eagle-eyed culture detectives at 22 Vision have just uncovered a connection between two beloved 90s institutions: Friends and Home Alone. If you've never noticed this, don't feel bad—it was deviously subtle, and also only came up in the final season of Friends. Only the most dedicated RossHeads were watching by that point. Check out this video to have your mind permanently blown.

If you don't feel like watching the video, here's the gist. (SPOILER ALERT) In season 10 of Friends, Chandler and Monica move into a house in the suburbs. If you watched this 2004 episode, you may have noticed that the view out their front door is eerily familiar. That's because the producers used left-over b-roll footage from Home Alone to fill out the windows. The view is what you would have seen looking out the window of Kevin McAllister's house.

This means that from a certain point of view, Chandler and Monica moved into the Home Alone house. It also implies their suburban getaway was located in Winnetka, Illinois, outside of Chicago. That would make for one serious commute for the Bings. But then again, nothing that happened in the last season of Friends made sense.
