The world is celebrating the F.R.I.E.N.D.S 25th anniversary. Google pays its tribute to the most popular show of decades, F.R.I.E.N.D.S in the quirkiest way. Google added a ton of Easter Eggs to search centered on the show’s main characters. To find out what they did, simply search the full name of one of the main characters of Friends.
Here’s what I found when I entered a few names from the show.
On the search results page near their name, there will be an icon. For example, when I searched for “Joey Tribbiani” I found this knowledge panel with a slice of pizza below his name. I clicked the pizza in the info panel then even more food will pop up across the search results, and a pair of hairy hands quickly snatched everything off-screen followed by a loud friendly voice “Joey doesn’t share food!” I’m sure, they must have struggled to decide between “How You Doin?” and “Joey doesn’t share his food”.
I searched “Rachel Green,” there were Jennifer Anniston’s ’90s cut in the panel. Clicking on it, redirected me to an image search result page for “The Rachel” haircut icons.
I searched “Chandler Bing”, his favorite recliner appeared. As I clicked on his beloved recliner, I got a visit from Yasmine and Dick. Clicking on the recliner again made them disappear.
I searched Phoebe Buffay and a guitar appears. As I clicked on the guitar, there it was the epic smelly cat dancing on Classic Phoebe’s song “Smelly Cat”.
As I searched Ross Geller, a couch icon appeared beside his name. As I clicked on it, there it was “Pivot” in Ross’s voice, which broke the couch in half after clicking 3 times, followed by Ross’s “Guys, I don’t it’s gonna pivot anymore.” I’m sure, “we were on a break”, must have given tough competition to the dialog used.
Searching Monica Geller (aka The Queen of Cleaning) a Soap bucket appeared. As I clicked on the soap bucket, I found a luxurious, refreshing, sparkling scrub making my screen squeaky clean.
Now when I searched “Friends glossary,” it brought up a show-specific catchphrase. Thus, making you nostalgic by taking you down the memory lane.
Although, I missed Janice’s epic “Oh My Gaawd” catchphrase, please Google add it too.
