Watch the 'Friends' opening recreated with Funko dolls

For all those watching at work, just tell your boss you were “on a break!”

The cast of Friends sure does look good after 20 years. Could it be thanks to them getting the plastic treatment?

No, we’re not talking plastic surgery. We’re talking vinyl Funko dolls, the adorable little figurines designed to look like Rachel, Ross, Monica, Phoebe, Chandler, and Joey.

Because the love for the group of ’90s twentysomethings is still as passionate as ever, and because Funko dolls are just so darn cute, Warner Bros., the production company behind the show, re-created the iconic opening scene with the dolls. The video even features a couch, fountain, and “The Rachel.”

The stop-motion animation is a shot-by-shot recreation of the original set to the Rembrandts’ “I’ll Be There For You,” and the detail is pretty impressive.
