Friends in-jokes really are the gift that keeps on giving.
It’s been a couple weeks now since Friends: The Reunion finally aired, but although the gang have gone their separate ways again, they’re still finding ways to reminisce with each other online.
The latest moment of Instagram-based bonding? This ridiculously star-studded singalong led by Courteney Cox, referencing the moment from the show when Phoebe (Lisa Kudrow) confuses the lyrics of Elton John’s song “Tiny Dancer”, thinking the pop legend is singing about the American actor Tony Danza.
None of which sounds all that exciting, maybe, until you see who joined Cox for her singalong:
Yep, she was joined by Brandi Carlile, Ed Sheeran, and “Tiny Dancer” maestro Elton John himself, each of whom cheerfully sung along to the Tony Danza version.
It wasn’t long before Kudrow took to Instagram to send them a response, either.
“Ed Sheeran, Courteney Cox, Brandi Carlille, and Elton John — that was the most thrilling thing ever. It was so good!” Kudrow says in the clip, before gently admonishing them for getting the lyrics a bit wrong.
“Technically it’s ‘Hold me close young Tony Danza,’ so, but, you know, what you did was great too, and including the original song you wrote, Sir Elton, that was really good.”
And as for why Courteney Cox, Elton John, Ed Sheeran and Brandi Carlile are casually hanging out together? We’re not sure, but it isn’t the first time Cox and Sheeran have bonded over Friends — just last week they joined forces to recreate Ross and Monica’s famous dance routine from the Season 6 episode The One with the Routine.
