A man who goes by the name of Gunther manages a coffee shop called Central Perk in Beijing, China. The coffee shop is a meticulous replica of the set from Friends. In the short i-D documentary, Gunther explains that he was heartbroken over his first love leaving him when a friend suggested he watch Friends to help him cope. The show got him through the difficult time in his life, so now he recommends it to other people, even likening the series to a religion. The story sounds like a meta sub-plot of a Friends episode.
